Step 1

Heat an 8-inch waffle iron and preheat the oven to 200°F. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes with the eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, 3/4 cup of cheese and 3 tablespoons of butter. Fold in the 1/2 cup of bacon and the 1/3 cup of chives.

Step 2

Brush the waffle iron with melted butter and spread one-fourth of the potato mixture onto it. Close and cook on high until the waffles is golden and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a rack in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining potato mixture. Serve the waffles topped with sour cream, crumbled bacon, cheddar and chopped chives.

Step 3

Note: These waffles can be made in a Belgian waffle maker to serve 3. Spoon one-third of the mixture onto the iron instead of one-fourth.

Very Good Indeed! We really liked these and they reminded us as a cousin of scallion pancakes (maybe an Irish cousin?). What I love about them, of course is the taste, which is YUM, YUM, but Love how fun they are. They're great to have on a Friday or Saturday night and I think I'm going to serve these at my next gathering at my home with friends. Thank you so much Teresa for sharing this wonderful recipe with us!

Awesome savoury waffle! Made for wonderful dinner. I too hand grated the potatoes but after squeezing out most of the moisture...I placed them on a couple of paper towel layers and rolled it up and squeezed some more. They came out nice and dry. Left the waffles in the maker until they were really crispy. Can see this recipe being made again and again. Thanks for sharing another of your wonderful recipes Teresa! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Marvelous taste and pretty as a picture! I hand grated the potatoes, rinsed them, and drained. My first waffle was a little soggy. I noticed the mixture in the bowl was sitting in a pool of liquid so drained it off, adjusted the heat on the waffle maker higher, and cooked the next ones longer. (I should have followed the directions and squeezed the potatoes very dry.) After correcting MY goofs we were rewarded with a great meal. I served with a salad of sliced heirloom tomatoes. Lovely meal!
