Turn your leftover mashed potatoes into something great with your waffle iron
You’ve got a ton of leftover mashed potatoes from your Thanksgiving feast, but you’re feeling a little tired of eating them as-is with gravy? Enter the waffle iron for the tastiest holiday leftovers hack ever, the perfect day-after breakfast that will dazzle your family and holiday houseguests.
Heat up an all-clad or stainless steel, Belgian waffle-style waffle iron. Place three cups of mashed potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Add three quarters of a cup of flour, a teaspoon of salt, and two large eggs; mix well with a wooden spoon. Then mix in one-and-a-half cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and two chopped green onions. Open the waffle iron and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add a half-cup of the potato mixture for each quadrant of your waffle maker. Close it and cook for five minutes.
Serve while hot and top with sour cream, crumbled bacon, and more chopped green onions. No matter how stuffed you are from your previous-day Thanksgiving feast, you’ll find these cheesy mashed potato waffles impossible to resist!
