I just saw this and it looked yummy to me. I would use the puff pastry waffle because it's lighter and quicker and it doesn't matter if it's screaming hot.

Keep those waffle irons out!

The potato waffles are a big hit here. DH makes a big batch at 7am and then keeps them in the oven on parchment paper until breakfast.

They are good and crispy and go really well with eggs.

For just DH and I, I was using up leftovers in the fridge...avoiding going to the store.  3 leeks, half pack of diced ham, milk, eggs....no potatoes....thought soup..  Freezer tater tots...

Tater tot waffles with creamy leeks with parmesan and ham!   DH says do it again, he thought it looked like Easter!   Yum!  This is the leftover!  Oh, no eggs in this....

With something red and green sprinkled on top it would look great for breakfast!

Agree, but was out...the potato waffles were nice and crunchy, and nice combination!  Will dress them up next time.

Did your DH use "tots" for the potato base?   Or grated potato?

He bought tater tots the first time and next time just grabbed what he thought were tots but they were the store brand and the were round instead of barrel shaped. I think the tot shape works best.

I'll go check what waffler we have and let you know the temp and time that worked best.

Black & Decker Grill and Waffle Maker. Spray lightly with oil, cook on high for 4 minutes. Open cover, fill in bare areas with more tots (MUST DO or it falls apart). Cook for 4 more minutes. Should come right off the waffler but might need some encouraging with a fork. Will be crunchy to the touch. Season while hot. Cut into sections for serving. Does 4 at a time.

Thanks!  I think I'll pick up some tots this week and give it a try.  I have several single room reservations coming up and these sound perfect for a low work side or base for eggs.

I tried using the Simply Potatoes hash browns for a potato waffle (for gluten-free vegans) and it was unsuccessful.  They didn't firm up enough and really stuck to the iron.  But I didn't mess around with them much to see if I could make it work.

I played around with Simply Potatoes also.  The only way I could get them to stick together was to add some egg white before waffling.  One time it worked well, then when I tried for guests I thought I was doing the same thing--on high until the light came on, but it fell apart and stuck badly.  I think I'll try tater tots now that I've picked off all the stuck on pieces of potato.

The recipe I am thinking of calls for tatter tots, an item I have never bought.  But, for a quick side dish when we only have 2-4 guests, I might give it a try if anyone has had success with them.

Guests love them! A lot of guests remember them from when they were kids or feeding them to their kids.

They come out crispy and if you sprinkle them with a little salt and pepper or other spice while they are still hot from the iron they are delicious! Says me who thinks tater tots are only a delivery system for blue cheese.

So when you keep them warm in the oven to serve later guests..what temp?  On the rack or a Cookie sheet???

Cookie sheet with parchment paper, 170 degrees. They stay crunchy for a long time. Maybe 2 hours. We've been topping them with eggs. Beats run running the toaster.

yes

I've only done them that one time. Been pretty slow and I've test out new things. Glad to know they hold for so long!

This version of eggs benedict would also be really good on top of the waffle potatoes I think!

Yes. Better than flour waffles.
