  • ½ bag of defrosted hash browns
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounce potato starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 pounds bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 5 jalapenos, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 pounds jalapeno Jack cheese, shredded

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt

Directions

Mix together pepper, cayenne, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, bacon, and jalapeños, then add hash browns and cheese.  Mix thoroughly by hand and add eggs, mix again.  Season with salt. Mix in potato starch and test the waffle iron. Place sizable scoop of mixture onto waffle iron and allow to cook through, using the waffle iron timer. Remove. You may need to adjust with potato starch after if the waffle tots were too wet.

Waffle Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Waffle Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
