They're waffle-y delicious!

Funny that the last post was a gadget  driven recipe. But ever since I got the waffle iron I've wanted to experiment with different uses. So...

Waffle Latkes!

Preheat your waffle iron to medium heat.

2 medium potatoes shredded
2 Tablespoons flour
1 egg
1 tsp salt
few grinds black pepper

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Lightly grease with waffle iron with fat of your choice.

Spoon potato mixture into hot waffle iron.

Use a wooden spoon to spread the mixture evenly. Close the iron and if you have the spinning type flip it over.The waffle maker will most likely hiss like a rabid cat. That's okay, it's all the moisture from the potatoes working it's way out. You may even get some of the "batter" leaking out.

Cook the latke for about 10 minute. The ready light on my waffle maker actually came on at about 10 minutes so that was perfect. If yours comes on before the 10 minutes do a quick peeky check. If the latke looks brown and crispy and the interior seems done you are good to go. If not ignore the green light and continue cooking for a few minutes more.

Remove from the waffle iron and separate into sections. Serve it with whatever you like on potato cakes. We like ketchup or brown sauce. Enjoy!
