Cheddar-Mashed Potato "Latke" Waffles with Garlic Olive Oil


  • 2 cups cold or room temperature mashed potatoes (preferably unseasoned)
  • 1 cup bleached all purpose flour or 1/2 potato flour (starch)
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 large scallions thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup garlic olive oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt (less for pre-seasoned mashed potatoes)
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Sour cream (optional for serving)


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

Grease the hot waffle iron well. Add 1/3 cup for each waffle. 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.

Serves 6-8
