(Flourless) Herbed Potato Waffles

Let me introduce you to my latest obsession: savory potato waffles.
Can I be honest with you? I am totally a sweet waffles person, so savory waffles are way out of the box for me.
But then I found out that I LUV these (Flourless) Herbed Potato Waffles, like a lot.
Maple syrup and butter, I’ll come back for you when the morning comes.

These savory waffles started with an overabundance of potatoes and humid mid-summer heat — which we all know is the worst for storing potatoes. They just don't keep.
Sure, I’ve made a lot of potato salad but I wanted to make something else, something like potato waffles.

You’ve probably seen hundreds of recipes for tater tot waffles.
Take a bag of frozen tots, smash ‘em onto a waffle iron -> delicious tater tot waffles.
But this time we do things a little bit differently.
Shredded potatoes + seasoning + egg -> awesome Herbed Potato Waffles.
You might as well call these latke waffles or hash brown waffles if you like. You have all the rights to do so.
I like to call ‘em for what they are: waffles made with potatoes and herbs.
Super simple, super tasty, super-duper-awesome.

These are great served with a sunny-side up egg on top, smothered with sriracha or caramelized onions. Let’s not even talk about crispy bacon because that’s where it’s at.
Breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner...it’s always the right time to make these bad boys.

Inspired by SandraEasyCooking

Makes 2 squared waffles, enough for 2 people

1 ½ cups shredded potatoes
1 medium egg
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Herbes de Provence* (substitute dried thyme or an “Italian herb blend”)
½ teaspoon fine grain salt
Ground black pepper to taste

*Herbes de Provence can be found at specialty foods stores and in the spice section of most supermarkets.


In a bowl combine all ingredients and mix well.
Heat the waffle maker and grease it very well (this is not your typical waffle mix and it might stick, so this is very important!)
Spread the potato mixture evenly. Close and cook until golden brown (this might take anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes depending on how powerful your waffle maker is).
Serve warm!

  7. This is the recipe I was looking for! I will try this recipe with sweet potatoe tomorrow, first thing!

  8. Hello,
    I noticed many liked how it looked, but no one mentioned making it. I have to say it is a lot easier than making hash browns in the regular way. Thank you for this. They are not only really good but easy to do.
