Waffle Iron Hashbrowns

Waffle Iron Hashbrowns

Here’s an neat trick that I saw on Pinterest for making waffle iron hashbrowns that I tried and loved and just had to share.  It was really easy, quick and made our breakfast more special than usual.

Here’s how I did it:

Thaw frozen tater tots and crumble into a bowl.  Heat waffle iron and brush with a little cooking oil.  (You can probably skip this step if your waffle iron is well seasoned.  I used oil because our waffle iron is new and it was probably unnecessary after all because the tater tots are already oily.)

Spread a layer of the crumbled tater tots evenly over the surface of the waffle iron.  Close the lid and mash it down really hard.  Let it cook until the waffle iron indicates that it’s done.  You can peek at it after a couple minutes.  Let it cook until it’s crispy and lightly browned.

Remove the cooked hashbrown from the waffle iron and repeat with the remaining potatoes until you’ve run out of potatoes.

Vegetable Tian

2 tbsp olive oil (divided)
1 large sweet yellow onion cut in half and sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1-2 russet potatoes, unpeeled
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
3 large Roma tomatoes
Sea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
Dried thyme, to taste
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and saute until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 60 seconds. Spread the onion mixture on the bottom of the greased baking dish.

Slice the potatoes, zucchini, squash and tomatoes in 1/4 inch thick slices. Layer them alternately in the dish on top of the onions, fitting them tightly into a spiral, making only one layer. Season with sea salt, black pepper and dried thyme, to taste. Drizzle the last tablespoon of olive oil over the top.

Cover the dish with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Uncover and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top and bake for another 25-30 minutes or until browned.
