Ham & Gruyère Hash Brown Waffles
Preheat a classic waffle iron to medium-high.Advertisement
Whisk eggs, oil, garlic, chives and pepper in a large bowl. Place hash browns in the center of a clean kitchen towel. Gather up the edges of the towel and twist and squeeze to wring out excess moisture from the hash browns. Stir the hash browns, ham and cheese into the egg mixture.
Coat the waffle iron with cooking spray. Use a generous 1 cup of the mixture per waffle and cook until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes each.
Equipment: Classic waffle iron (not Belgian-style)
Hash Browns: You may see disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate (also called sodium acid pyrophosphate) in the ingredient list. It's a common, safe food additive, that prevents the potatoes from browning and reduces acrylamide formation (a carcinogen created during frying). Opt for unseasoned ones and save 200-300 mg of sodium per serving. Our Favorites: Cascadian Farms and Ore-Ida
