Savory Cheddar Mashed Potato "Latke" Waffles with Garlic Olive Oil


2 cups cold or room temperature mashed potatoes (preferably unseasoned)

1 cup bleached all purpose flour or 1/2 potato flour (starch)

1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

2 large scallions thinly sliced

1/3 cup garlic olive oil

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 teaspoons salt (less for pre-seasoned mashed potatoes)

fresh ground pepper to taste

Sour cream (optional for serving)

Heat the waffle maker. Meanwhile add all the ingredients to a large bowl including 1/2 of the scallions, and whisk thoroughly.

Grease the hot waffle iron well. Add 1/3 cup for each waffle. Cook until golden brown on the inside, about 5 minutes per waffle. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, additional scallions, and hot sauce, if desired.

Serves 6 - 8
