Hash Brown Waffles With Tart Cherry Syrup


Prep Time: 10 minsCook Time: 20 minsServings: 4
These waffles will make your brunch the best on the block. They're sweet and tart with a "secret" ingredient of shredded potatoes to make them extra delicious.



  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.


  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.

Recipe 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.
