Ingredients

Hash Browns

  • 1 ¼ lbs. yellow potatoes, with skin-on, grated
  • 1 large egg and 4 egg whites
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons olive oil
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Syrup

  • 12 oz. bag frozen tart cherries or fresh pitted
  • ¼ cup organic cane sugar or honey
  • 2 Tablespoons water

Preparation
Prep Time: 10min | Cook Time: 20min

Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, bring cherries, sugar and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until the cherries cook down and the mixture starts to thicken to a syrup consistency. Remove from heat. It will continue to thicken as it sits. Optional: Blend using food processor or blender if you prefer a thinner syrup.

For Waffles

  1. Preheat waffle iron to medium-high setting. Meanwhile, squeeze excess water out of grated potatoes using a clean kitchen towel.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together potatoes, eggs, olive oil, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper.
  3. Spray waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray. Spoon a layer of potato mixture onto the surface leaving about ½” from the edges. Close the lid and cook for about 5 minutes, checking occasionally. Continue to cook for about 2 more minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Transfer to a warm oven while you finish the remaining batches. Serve with warm cherry syrup.

Notes

If the waffle iron lid doesn’t close all the way at first, close it slightly and let cook for 2 minutes before pressing the lid down completely.

Time-Saving Tips

  • Use pre-shredded refrigerated potatoes if you don’t have time to make your own.
  • Or, save time by grating the potatoes in a food processor fitted with a shredding disk, or use a box grater. Do this the night before and store potatoes in a bowl of ice water in the refrigerator. Drain and squeeze out excess water with a clean kitchen towel and proceed with recipe. This will help them crisp up best.
  • The waffle recipe can be completed ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. Reheat in a 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until heated through.
  • Syrup can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Customizations

  • Add in just about anything you like to these waffles! Ideas include: diced bell peppers, minced onion, fresh herbs or cooked turkey bacon or ham, chopped.
