Cheesy Potato Waffles

What is something that you have never thought to put in a waffle iron? I feel like a lot of people these days are trying ANYTHING to see how it turns out. And I can’t say that I blame them.

These potato waffles are so delicious and creative. You can make them for brunch, a side for dinner, they go well with so many options!

The waffle iron makes them the perfect amount of crispiness. And It only takes 3 minutes to cook them to perfection!
