Potato Waffles


These savory potato waffles are a quick and delicious way to use up those leftover mashed potatoes. You will need a waffle iron. These are basically potato pancakes (a.k.a. latkes) but without all the greasy clean-up and calories from pan-frying. I usually serve them with fish or chicken and sautéed apples.
