Potato Waffles

Potato waffles are a popular breakfast or snack food made from grated potatoes that are formed into a waffle shape and then cooked in a waffle iron. They are often served with butter and syrup, but can also be topped with cheese, or other savory ingredients. They can be made from scratch or bought frozen and heated up in a toaster. They are a popular food in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Here is a simple recipe for making potato waffles at home:


  • 2 cups grated potatoes
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Oil or butter, for cooking


In a large bowl, mix together the grated potatoes, flour, egg, and milk. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a waffle iron to medium-high heat and lightly oil or butter the plates.

Scoop 1/4 cup of the potato mixture onto the waffle iron and close the lid. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the waffle is golden brown and crispy.

Repeat with the remaining potato mixture, until all of the waffles are cooked.

Serve the waffles hot with butter and syrup, or your preferred toppings.

For a crispy crust and fluffy interior, let the grated potatoes sit in a strainer for a few minutes to remove excess moisture before mixing in the other ingredients.
