Mashed Potato Waffles

Mashed Potato Waffles: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Throughout the holiday season I have been dealing with lots of leftovers in my fridge. One leftover I seemed to have the most of was mashed potatoes. After a few meals with mashed potatoes, I decided I needed to reinvent my mashed potatoes into something new.

My mind kept on going to mashed potato pancakes, but I have made those many times before and I wanted something different. Then it hit me, why not use my waffle maker. It would be like a potato pancake but easier because I would not have to turn them and worry about them falling apart. Plus there are so many different things you can make in your waffle maker, like Waffle Iron Grilled Cheese, Hash Brown Waffles and Doughnut Waffles with Maple Glaze, why not mashed potatoes.

As I was cleaning out the fridge and thinking about how I was going to make the mashed potato waffles I came across a container of Chobani Greek yogurt. My family loves yogurt and we always have a fair amount of it in the fridge. Plus with all of the different types and flavors that Chobani offers it is easy to keep the fridge well supplied with yogurt.

I decided that the mashed potato waffles would be perfect #MadeWithChobani. Plus I had the right amount of yogurt. Two leftovers finished up in one dish is definitely a win for me. Be sure to check out Chobani's recipe section for even more delicious recipes using yogurt.

Mashed Potato Waffles
Ingredients:
2 eggs
1/4 cup greek yogurt
2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1/4 cup green onions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Directions:
Preheat the waffle maker.

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and greek yogurt. Add in the mashed potatoes, green onions, cheddar cheese and black pepper. Mix well.

In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Fold the flour mixture into the potatoes, until well combined.

Spray the waffle maker with cooking spray and place some of the potato mixture onto to hot waffle maker. Spread into an even layer and close the lid. Let the potatoes cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside. This could take anywhere between 3 and 10 minutes. Depending on how the waffle maker cooks. Try not to lift the lid too soon or the potato mixture will separate and stick to the waffle maker. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture.

Enjoy!!!

Notes:
If your mashed potatoes seem too thick add a little bit more milk. If your mashed potatoes seem too thin add a little bit more flour. Be careful not to add too much flour or they will have a flour taste to them.

I was able to get 6 mashed potato waffles, but this may vary depending on the size and type of waffle maker you use.
