Ethan loves waffles, so we got a waffle maker. I love hash browns, so I make hash brown waffles in our waffle maker! These aren’t just any hash brown waffles. They are studded with grated onion and extra sharp cheddar cheese. The onion almost disintegrates into the waffle and the cheese melts right in, making a perfect consistency.
I can almost always guarantee that in our pantry we will have a potato, an onion, and cheese and eggs in our refrigerator. This is a go-to meal for us. It is easy to make and we love having breakfast for dinner, not to mention, I love hash browns and fried eggs.
If you aren’t into the whole “breakfast for dinner thing” these are fabulous for a weekend brunch. They are filling enough to satisfy your hunger needs until the next meal, which can’t be said for all breakfast items, you know the ones that are cloyingly sweet.
This will make enough for 2 hash brown waffles.

2 cups of Shredded Potato, thawed frozen potatoes or about 2 large potatoes, grated
1/4 cup of Grated Onion
1/4 cup of Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper
First, preheat your waffle iron to medium-high heat.
Now, place the shredded potatoes in a clean dish towel and squeeze out any additional liquid. Place the potatoes into a large bowl and mix with the onion, cheese, and one of the eggs, until evenly coated. Stir in the garlic powder and salt and pepper.
Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and spread half of the mixture to the iron. Close the iron and cook until crispy and brown, my iron took 5-7 minutes.
Next, place a small skillet over medium heat, melt 1/2 tablespoon of butter in it. When the butter has melted, crack an egg into the pan. Let it cook for one minute, flip and cook until the desired doneness is achieved. Cook the additional egg the same way.
Serve the egg on top of the waffle and eat immediately.
