Ham & Cheese Hash brown Waffles

  • Author: Kelley


Hash browns cooked in the waffle iron. These are crispy, cheesy perfection!


  • 20 oz refrigerated shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced deli ham
  • cooking spray
  • 68 eggs


  1. Preheat waffle iron to medium-high.
  2. To a large bowl, add the shredded potatoes, melted butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cheddar cheese, and diced ham; combine all ingredients.
  3. Evenly spray the grates of the waffle iron with non stick cooking spray.
  4. Add enough potato mixture to iron, evenly mounded in the center. I used about 1/4-1/3 cup in each waffle cavity.
  5. Close iron completely and cook for about 1o minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Cooking time will vary based on how hot your waffle iron gets.
  6. Keep cooked waffles in a 250F oven to keep warm while other waffles cook.
  7. While waffles cook, preheat a skillet oven medium heat. Coat with butter or cooking spray and fry eggs to desired doneness. Top each waffle with a fried egg and a sprinkle of chives if desired.
