Sunny Side Up Potaffles

Sunny side up Potaffles

Pottafles are what came to my mind when I was craving for hash browns, yet wanted to make waffles when I had a lot of potatoes in my pantry. It is a super easy breakfast idea. Some days I really crave for something savory in the morning, but the thought of the process involved makes me want to adjust with pancakes and waffles. What I liked about potaffles was that it had a hash brown taste to it, without much effort.

The ingredients are basic, so you make it very easily, but of course, if you have a waffle maker. The addition of the corn flour helps to make the waffles crisper unlike usual savory waffles. Though, right after cooking the potaffles, they may look soggy, but it gets crisper when the vapour evaporates, the potaffles gets crispy.

After mixing the batter of the potaffles, the more the batter sits, water oozes from the potatoes, which can be removed by straining the water. You may avoid onions, but it helps elevate the flavors as well as helps the potatoes from oxidizing and changing color once shredded. I served the potaffles with sides like sausages, streamed brocolli and sunny side up eggs with a warm cup of coffee to go with it. If you have a food processor and a waffle maker, do definitely try this recipe, it's delicious yet super easy.
