Waffle Maker Hashbrowns Recipe


  1. Preheat your waffle maker to medium heat and when hot, add the bacon. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the bacon is cooked to desired crispiness. Place on a paper towel to drain off the excess fat and then chop into small pieces. Drain the excess rendered bacon fat out of the waffle maker.
  2. In a large bowl, add the eggs and whisk. Add in the hash browns, cheese, bacon, garlic powder, paprika, chives, and salt & pepper. Mix to combine.
  3. Place the waffle maker back onto medium heat and when hot, scoop in 1 cup of the batter and spread into an even layer. Press down the waffle maker and cook for 5-7 minutes or until crispy. Repeat for the remaining batter.
  4. Sprinkle over with more chives and enjoy alone or topped with fried eggs.
