I love potatoes and I love waffles - and I have no idea why I've never made potato waffles before. It's a delicious way of using leftover potatoes. To be honest, I didn't really have any leftover potatoes, but it was still worth making them.
Potato waffles are perfect for brunch. You can serve them with smoked salmon, yoghurt and chives. Surely, it's not the lightest bite you can imagine, but you have to eat something on those cold, rainy mornings, when you crave something hearty to cheer you up.
