Savory Scallion Cheddar Waffles & Hash-Browns!

Author Lauren


  • For the waffles-
  • 1 cup all purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 1 large egg 2 tablespoons canola oil 3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons whole milk 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 whole scallion chopped finely (white and green parts)
  • For the hash browns-
  • 2 large Idaho potatoes 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion 3 tablespoons butter salt pepper


  1. For the waffles-
  2. In large bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients. Gently stir in all wet ingredients until just combined. Stir in cheese and scallions. Pour batter onto greased, preheated waffle iron. Serve hot with butter and syrup.
  3. For the hash browns-
  4. Wash potatoes well with skins on. Prick potatoes and microwave until soft, about 7 minutes. (Or use your baked potato button if you have one). In large skillet, melt butter and saute onions over medium heat. Cube potatoes and stir into pan to coat in butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Keep pan around medium heat and cook until potatoes are brown and crispy. (I find that if you leave them alone in the pan for 5 minutes at a time, then they brown quicker!). Serve warm.
