This easy, affordable, and delicious potato waffle and chickpea salad is a winner! I even suspect a big hit with picky kids (will research later)
I think this potato waffle would be great as a brunch item to use as a benny base, huevos rancheros, topped with anything as an open faced sandwich or used with your favourite dip. I will be exploring deeper trust me. Potatoes are like black they go with anything
The humble potato is loaded with vitamin C,B6 and potassium to name a few + at about .75 a portion it's the perfect meal accompaniment for the present.
2-3 russet potatoes sliced in half
Boiled in heavily salted water
8-12 min until fork tender but not falling apart (potato salad doneness)
Drain and air dry to let some moisture evaporate
2 oz cheese of choice grated (vegan would work)
Seasoning of choice I just added s&p, paprika and garlic powder but you could go OFF
Assemble in waffle maker
1 oz cheese on bottom
1 oz cheese on top
Squish and cook for 8-10 min until it's crispy and golden brown.
