Two Potato Waffle Hash Browns

 
 
Are you having family over for Thanksgiving? Maybe you’re expecting relatives from out of town, who you will know doubt have to feed before Thanksgiving dinner hits the table.  Unfortunately where I come from we may say to guests ‘we will eat dinner at 3’ but most everyone knows to add at least 1-2 hours on the estimated time the turkey and dressing actually hit the table.  Which always means that inevitably grumbling stomachs will come marching through the kitchen looking for crumbs or worst, taste tests.  I have a solution for those grumbling stomachs: a super big breakfast!
Our Thanksgiving may be small this year.  But I know that the kiddos (and the hubby is guilty too – he comes through the kitchen under the guise of test tasting for ‘poison’) will come trolling through saying I‘m hungry!’  My plan for the kiddos is to fill up their bellies the morning of Thanksgiving with some grits and potatoes.  And they won’t have to wait for sweet potatoes until dessert.  To keep my Thanksgiving morning in tune with the afternoon I have two potato hash browns in mind.   

 

 

Ingredients:

 

2 medium white potatoes (or you can use white potatoes)
1 large sweet potato
[Total about 6 cups]
Butter
1-3 eggs
Salt
Pepper
Waffle iron (Note: I like the waffle iron instead of the pan or electric griddle because it’s super hard to get all of the water out of potatoes, thus making it a challenge to get them crisp enough.  But the waffle iron seems to do the trick!)
Makes about 6-7 waffle hash browns

 

 

Directions:

Peel potatoes. Shred potatoes (or you can buy them already shredded.  If you buy frozen hash browns go straight to waffle iron).

Rinse potatoes thoroughly.  Get all of that starch out of there.

Take paper towelsssss (warning, you’re gonna use a lot) and ring as much water as possible out of potatoes.

Ring, ring and then ring some more. Squeeze until no water drips from potatoes.  Then add salt and pepper to taste.

First! For regular hash browns butter waffle iron really well and place 1 cup of potatoes in each well. Let cook for about 10-15 or until potatoes begin to crisp.
