Two days until Thanksgiving! I know you’re probably buried in turkey brine and pie recipes, so I wanted to put something a little different up – something to help you use up your leftovers.
Mashed potatoes are something we always seem to have a ton of and this is a great way to use some of them up. These waffles are super simple but are different enough that you don’t feel like you’re eating leftover again.
Leftover Mashed Potato Waffles
(from Just a Taste)
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
3 Tbsp. chopped scallions
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Sour cream, optional for serving
In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, buttermilk and eggs until well combined. Mix in mashed potatoes until well combined. Stir in the scallions and cheese.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the potato mixture and stir until just combined.
Spoon 2/3 cup of the mixture evenly into a preheated waffle iron sprayed with non-stick spray. Cook until golden brown. Serve topped with sour cream.
