Mashed Potato Waffles

4.3 from 9 reviews


  • 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) melted butter
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes (a little more or less is okay)
  • 1/4 cup grated cheese
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (or plain yogurt)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh minced herbs (thyme, rosemary, dill, parsley)
  • Optional toppings: more sour cream, butter, bacon bits, broccoli in cheese sauce


  1. Whisk the melted butter, potatoes, cheese, milk and sour cream together until combined.
  2. Add flour, baking powder, and spices and mix quickly. Batter will be quite thick, like cake batter. Add a little more milk or flour to adjust the consistency if you need to.
  3. Spoon about 1/2 cup scoops onto a hot waffle iron and spread the batter out a little. Close and cook until the waffle stops steaming and opens easily.
  4. Serve as-is or with more butter.
  5. For a more elaborate dinner, serve hot potato waffles with a baked potato-bar type set-up (bowls of sour cream, chopped chives, bacon bits, broccoli, cheese sauce) for people to dress their waffles.
