These Waffle Iron Hash Browns are our favorite new breakfast hack that has us reaching for our potato peeler.

Using your waffle iron to make these crispy Waffle Iron Hashbrowns, not only eliminates all the extra oil from pan-frying, it helps turn your waffle iron into more than just a one-trick pony.

Crispy is the name of the game

We’re all about finding ways to improve our favorite recipes by making them healthier. The key to the perfect crispy hashbrowns isn’t frying in access oil, it’s as simple as reducing moisture. By using starchy russet potatoes, and squeezing them through a kitchen towel, you get fluffy hashbrowns with perfectly crispy edges.

Potatoes are a carbohydrate (a starchy vegetable). Like with any carbohydrate, we recommend enjoying them alongside a high-quality protein source, healthy fat, and of course plenty of fiber.

For a breakfast that’s quick and easy, we love to serve these crispy Waffle Iron Hash Browns with scrambled eggs. Adding your favorite fresh fruit avocado gives an additional boost of vitamins and fiber.

Breakfast is a big deal

You don’t need an excuse to celebrate breakfast time. Whipping up brunch for friends, family, or treating yourself? Try some of our other healthy and easy breakfast favorites:

The Recipe

Serves 2-4



2 large russet potatoes,

salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Preheat your waffle iron and set to medium-high heat.

Peel potatoes, and carefully grate them over a kitchen towel or several layers of cheesecloth.

Pull ends of the towel together forming a sack, and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

Step 2

In batches, arrange grated potatoes on one side of the waffle iron, salt, and pepper to taste, and close the waffle iron.

Cook until potatoes are brown and crispy, about 10 minutes. Cook remaining grated potatoes serve.

Have Leftovers? Here’s What To Do With Them:

As always, store in an airtight glass container that we recommend from the NS Shop in the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat in the oven or placing back in your waffle iron.
