The Peach Diner Potato Waffles

When Marygene is feeling down, a potato waffle is one of her go-to comfort foods.

MAY 23 Recipe

2 pounds yellow or red potatoes, shredded and squeezed dry                                                   3 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus extra for garnish

¼ cup diced onion
¼ tsp garlic powder
1½ teaspoons Himalayan salt or sea salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

¼ teaspoon thyme
2 eggs, lightly beaten

½ pound cooked and chopped bacon

¼ cup chopped chives for garnish

Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray, if required.

Toss the potatoes with butter, onions, salt, pepper, and thyme in a bowl until evenly coated. Stir eggs into the potato mixture.

Spoon some potato mixture onto the preheated waffle iron; cook until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, 5 to 8 minutes. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture.

Garnish with crispy bacon, chives or parsley, and extra cheese.
