Waffle Iron Hash Browns
With just three simple ingredients, these Waffle Iron Hash Browns are easy to make and super yummy for breakfast. These are super crispy and browned on the outside, with just a bit of soft potato goodness on the inside. These take all the guesswork out of making them on the stove.
One other thing I really like about these hash browns is that they use a lot less oil than cooking them in a skillet. Just 2 tablespoons for all those potatoes. And they still come out super crispy and browned. Win!
Try them on a breakfast sandwich with English Muffins, eggs, and cheese. They’re perfect for eating as a simple side dish with scrambled eggs. Your family will love these, and you’ll love how easy they are. Or, have your kids make them for you for Mother’s Day! I mean, who wouldn’t want these for breakfast in bed?!
Waffle Iron Hash Browns Recipe Notes:
Microwaving the potatoes to defrost them is such a time saver! Keep in mind that microwave power varies. My microwave is pretty powerful, so it doesn’t take long to defrost the potatoes. Keep an eye on the potatoes as they defrost so you can get a good idea of how long they take.
Unlike my microwave, my waffle maker is old. So I imagine most people have a newer fancier waffle maker than I have. Cook according to the directions on your machine. And, take the hash browns out when they are nice and golden brown and crispy!
