Recipe of the Week: Hash brown Waffles

In case you missed can put just about anything in a waffle iron these days that is not traditional waffle mix.  Have you tried cinnamon rolls in the waffle iron yet!?

I am not typically a sweet food breakfast person, so the idea of a savory mix of anything is extremely appealing.  So get out your waffles iron and experiment a little.  Here is a good base to start with, but the sky is the limit on the ingredients.


Ham and Gruyere Hash Brown Waffles


5 eggs, divided (only 1 egg beaten)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 bag (20 oz) refrigerated hash browns (do not use frozen)
1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
8 oz thinly sliced black forest ham
salt and pepper, to taste
tablespoon finely chopped chives


Preheat waffle iron as directed.

In a large bowl, combine 1 beaten egg, oil, hash browns, cheese and ham.  Season with salt and pepper.

Coat the waffle iron with cooking spray. Use a generous 1 cup of the mixture per waffle and cook until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes.

Top each waffle with one fried egg and then a garnish of chopped chives.

Notes:  It's best to use a traditional waffle iron and not the Belgian style for a crispier waffle
