Want to know how to cook hash browns easily? Just fire up your waffle maker! This easy trick is a fun and easy way to cook crispy hash browns.
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Pancakes, waffles, bacon, eggs, hash browns – it’s all just yummy. It can get a little tricky, though, trying to juggle making multiple foods at the same time. I love eating my eggs on top of hash browns, but it takes more time to cook the hash browns and then the eggs. I’ve seen the idea around but I finally took the time to figure out how to make hash browns in a waffle maker.
Of course you need hash browns to cook. You could grate potatoes and use those. Or make it easier and just pick up a package of Simply Potatoes hash browns. Simply Potatoes is a line of refrigerated, prepared potatoes found in the dairy section. Simply Potatoes products are fresh, never frozen and made with real ingredients. No peeling or shredding required.
I decided to add finely diced onions and red peppers for a little added flavor. Simply Potatoes does carry a southwestern hash brown blend which would have been perfect for waffling.
I used butter on my waffle maker to give the hash browns some color. These do take about 20 minutes to cook in the waffle maker so you’ll have plenty of time to fry up bacon, eggs or make toast while they cook. Just flip the waffle iron over to get the hash browns out as a “waffle” or you can just scatter them on the plate. Serve with bacon and a couple of fried eggs right on top.
- 1/2 bag Simply Potatoes Hash Browns
- 1 Tablespoon finely diced onions
- 1 Tablespoon finely diced red pepper
- Preheat waffle maker on high heat.
- Butter both sides of waffle maker. Add onions and peppers to waffle maker and close the lid for a few minutes.
- Add about 1 1/2 cups of Simply Potato Hash Browns to the waffle maker. The potatoes will cook down so it's OK if they are heaping. Close the waffle maker and put something heavy on top until the potatoes cook down.
- Continue to cook until potatoes are brown and crispy, about 20 minutes.
- Serve hot.
