Savory Cheddar-Mashed Potato Latke Waffles with Garlic Olive Oil

Yup, we put potatoes in our waffle maker. What!? You don’t put potatoes in your waffle maker? Heresy!! These golden crisp-on-the-outside and creamy-cheesy on the inside savory snacks are absolutely mind blowing! Your waffle maker will love it!


  • 2 cups cold mashed potatoes (preferably unseasoned)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour or ½ cup potato flour
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 large scallions thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Harvest garlic olive oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Sour cream (optional for serving)
  • Hot sauce (optional for serving)

Heat your waffle maker.  Oh boy! You’re about to make Latke!

Meanwhile, add all the ingredients to a large bowl including 1/2 of the scallions, and whisk thoroughly.

Grease the clean, hot waffle iron well.  We like a high temp non-stick spray best, but grapeseed oil also works well.

Add 1/3 cup for each waffle. Smash that lid down gently.

Cook until golden brown on the inside, about 5 minutes per waffle.

Serve with a dollop of sour cream, additional scallions, and hot sauce, if desired.
