Perfect hash browns every time!

Waffle Iron Hash Brown Tater Tots - FamilyFreshMeals.com

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.

    I don’t have a waffle iron. . . so I will try these in my George Foreman grill!!
    Thank you for this wonderful idea :)

    Scramble 2 eggs… get your iron ready, spray it, and add a handful of chopped tomatoes, peppers and onions… close the iron and let it cook for a minute. Open it back up, and add the eggs. Let cook for 3 minutes on medium, and you’ll have a perfect omelette! Add a little cheese, and fold it over… SO good. Would go perfect with the hash browns!

    This was fun and easy. Thanks for being here when I needed you. :) I was pretty sure I had the concept figured out, but your directions made it fast and easy. My family REALLY enjoyed heart-shaped tater-waffles for V-day breakfast.

    This article don’t lie! 3 to 3.5 minutes, I couldn’ believe they cooked so fast! After squishing them down at first, I locked my Waffle Iron down. Tater Tots are cheaper than loose frozen hash browns too. They are indeed- some of the best hash browns I ever ate! These are not quite like McDonalds hash browns, they are soft inside and crispness is just wonderful.

      Yes, but as I stated in the direction….”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!”

      I hope that helps :)
