  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-2 tablespoons chopped chives (or green onions)
  • 6-8 slices bacon, fried to a crisp and crumbled or cut into pieces
  • sour cream

Yield: 8 small potato waffles


  1. What a great idea! I’m going to try this! I made potato patties with the last batch of leftovers and I guess I forgot how to do them because they were awful!

  2. Thank you, Judy ... I made these for lunch today, substituting 3 tbsp gluten-free flour for the wheat flour ... They turned out perfect !! very good !
