I know I'm late to the waffle party - I haven't made much other than actual waffles in my waffle iron although I've been wanting to try the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls since Hannah told me they work great.
We're not big potato or hash brown people in general but this recipe has been popular around our house. Well, after the first time when my husband though it was an actual waffle and poured syrup all over it. I'll typically make one and split it between the two of us as a side with eggs or omelets. There's a picture of this with the fritatta in the last post.
Recipe notes . . . I buy the frozen hash browns that don't have extra ingredients - that are basically just the potatoes. I imagine you could shred your own and it would be the same but I usually take the short cut and keep a bag in my freezer. Where the recipe says "Other seasonings," I've tried this with diced green chiles and cumin and usually put hot sauce on it after it's cooked. You could do chopped spinach, other diced veggies, cooked diced bacon etc.
Hash Waffle (makes 1 large waffle)
3/4 cup frozen shredded hash browns (thawed)
3 T egg whites (about 2 large)
salt and pepper to taste
any other seasonings
Preheat waffle iron. Beat eggs and seasonings in a bowl. Stir in thawed hash browns and mix well. Spray waffle iron with non-stick spray. Pour mixture into iron and spread evenly. Cook until browned and cooked through - or when your waffle iron light comes on (or goes off?)
