These delicious waffles start with shredded potato, then add sour cream, cheddar and green onion for a loaded baked potato waffle! Topped with a crispy fried egg



For waffles:

  • 3 cups russet (baking) potato shredded
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt plus more, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onion finely diced

For topping:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp neutral cooking oil
  • Additional diced green onion for garnish


  1. Shred the potatoes and place in a colander. Sprinkle with some salt and toss to combine. Let stand to drain for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Preheat waffle iron to a little less that high.
  3. Squeeze remaining liquid from the potatoes and place potatoes in a medium bowl. Beat eggs in a small bowl and add to the potatoes, together with the flour, baking powder and a bit of salt and freshly ground peppers. Stir to combine. Add sour cream, melted butter, cheddar cheese and green onion. Stir to combine.

  4. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Add 1/3 of the batter (if making 3) to the centre of the waffle iron and spread out towards the edges a bit. You don't need or want to cover the entire surface. Cook waffles 5-6 minutes, or until cooked through and very golden. Remove to a cooling rack (or to a baking sheet to pop into a 300F oven if you want to keep them warm while you make more.)
  5. When waffles are cooked, heat oil in a skillet over high heat. When very hot, break eggs into oil and cook until edges of egg are crispy and browned and whites are set, about 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and let stand another 30 seconds. Place egg on top of waffles and garnish with additional diced green onion.
