I am so excited to share this new side dish with you….Cheddar Potato Waffle Fritters! These mini waffles are the perfect clever alternative to biscuits. They are so easy to make and so adorable! I especially love pairing them with my turkey chili because the waffle shape helps scoop up chunks of chili but they would also go great with some perfectly runny eggs for a bold flavor both in the morning and at night! I made them in partnership with Simply Potatoes® because I am all about wholesome ingredients that are easy to use!
I only used 6 ingredients to make these. Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Brownsare the base. I love them because they really are just fresh shredded potatoes. You don’t get weird add ins or potatoes that have been frozen. They are just nice natural potatoes that you pull out of your fridge, rip into, and are ready to go. For the waffles, be sure to add in two eggs to make sure all of the ingredients stick together. Then finally add in your flavors. For this dish I used sour cream, cheddar, and chives because when I think potatoes, nothing beats cheddar & sour cream! Finish of with a dash of salt & pepper for some seasoning. Next time I am thinking of doing goat cheese, bacon, and chopped up dates! Once you have your potato & egg base, the sky is the limit! Maybe I’ll do cinnamon & sugar for a sweet alternative. What flavor sounds best to you?
I used a mini waffle maker to make these adorable little minis, but you could use a regular waffle maker & cut them down to size too. I have been craving waffles ever since we got back from Belgium. These were the perfect excuse to get a waffle maker! Everything tastes better in waffle shape! Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns are something I would normally just think to throw into a cheesy morning casserole, but when you turn them into a savory side dish & pop them into a waffle maker, hello breakfast or dinner!
How amazing does that golden stack look???
It never hurts to add another dollop of sour cream & some more chives to your Simply Potatoes® Cheddar Potato Waffle Fritters, whether for a garnish or just to be decadent!
One of my most popular recipes is my Crockpot Turkey Chili. It’s been extra popular this season as the fall finally turned cool! I can’t even begin to express how delicious these are dipped into the chili. I ended up just setting my spoon aside & using the Simply Potatoes®Cheddar Potato Waffle Fritters as a spoon!
Every year for Thanksgiving my Aunt Mary would make her famous Pecan Pie. As a kid I never liked the pecans, but I loved the gooey inside of the pie. While I am gaining an appreciation for pecan pie, I still haven’t outgrown my love for the gooey inside of the pie. SO when it came […]
Happy Labor Day everyone! We had a scorcher of a weekend. It was up to 108 degrees! I’ve never seen it get that high in our area before. We took our Labor Day weekend BBQ inside and opted for as many dishes that didn’t require turning the stove on as possible! One of my favorites […]

For our wedding, my Aunt Edna made her famous Homemade Sugar Mints. We placed the pretty white mints in dishes at our reception.

Sometimes you need a nice straight flavored butter, such as when making a grilled cheese or cooking pasta, but sometimes life just calls for a flavored butter.
