Perfect hash browns every time!

I’m no stranger at using my waffle iron for other things than waffles.  Our two favorites are waffle pizza dippers  and waffle iron cinnamon rolls. I had seen people on Pinterest trying out hash browns so I thought I would give it a whirl!

 

Bagged hash browns didn’t work out so well in my opinion. Turned out dry and seem to burn too easily.

 

BUT tater tots worked PERFECTLY!!! They have a nice crispy outside with a tender middle. YUM!

 

NOTE: The frozen tater tots have to be partially thawed before going in to waffle iron. So as soon as I get up in the morning, I’ll grab the bag out of the fridge and let it sit  out while I get the morning coffee brewing.  After I enjoy my first cup, the tots are ready to rock!

NOTE: Serving size  and and quantities of waffles will vary based on the size of your waffle iron.  Mine 7 inch iron made 4  waffles,  which is 8 servings.

 

 

1. Set waffle iron to medium /high.  Wait until iron indicates it is ready to go and spray with non-stick stray or coat with oil. Set tater tots evenly on  waffle iron.   My iron measures 7 inches across and I used about 22 tots per waffle.

2. Close iron and press down firmly to flatten out the tots a little.  While they cook, you press down more and more as they continue to cook. Total cooking time is about 2-3 minutes depending on your waffle iron.
