Well..I think I found a way to improve mashed potatoes and gravy!
OH~I know how crazy that sounds, but hear me out~~ When you turn mashed potatoes into waffles, you have TONS of toasty little potato square ‘flavor chambers’ to capture all of the runaway gravy that should’ve otherwise stayed put.
~Yep~ we now have gravy traps built right into those mashed potatoes…you. are. welcome! 🙂
Seriously, these mashed potatoes are the best thing to happen to my waffle iron ..and to my mouth in a long..LONG time!
And what a great way to make use of those leftover mashed potatoes that we ALWAYS have!
Make a huge batch…you can even whip some up for breakfast, hold the gravy (or not).. and top it with an egg..OH YEAHhh! ..We do what we want..lol! 🙂
What you’ll need:
About 2 cups of mashed potatoes..leftovers, or you can whip up your own.
1 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk or milk
1 tbsp. butter….melted
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
dash of garlic power..optional
brown gravy..I used a pre-made powder
chives for garnish..optional
**NO CHEESE as pictured…unless you’d like to add some into the mashed potatoes.
In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, flour, baking powder, baking soda, buttermilk, butter, garlic powder, and eggs…
Add approx. 3/4 scoop of the potatoes into each section of the waffle maker and cook until golden…
Let them cool…
Now..gravy them UP, with some optional garnish of course!
And dig in! ~Enjoy! 🙂
