These loaded potato waffles are a gluten free and grain free brunch recipe that’s sure to impress your weekend guests!
Guys. I got a waffle maker and I’m officially obsessed. I’ve made a waffle legit every single weekend for the past month and I don’t feel bad about it (#pregnant). Today I wanted to switch things up with a savoury take on the waffle- my loaded potato waffles! It’s basically the love child between a traditional waffle and a massive hash brown and it is OMG so good. It’s also gluten free and grain free, so it’s perfect for guests with intolerances.
How to Make Loaded Potato Waffles
So this is pretty simple and really, the sky is the limit when it comes to flavours. You basically just mix grated potatoes with some eggs, cheese, and seasonings (I went for chives, because why not?) and pack it into your waffle maker. Then, because that wouldn’t be excessive enough, I top it off with a poached eggs, some greek yogurt or sour cream, bacon bits and some more cheese. My hubby took one bite and said, “Yep. I’m eating this.” And eating these loaded potato waffles he did.
Not into meat? No problem. Skip the bacon and double up on cheese.
No time to grate potatoes? All good! Most grocery stores sell pre-shredded potatoes in the produce aisle or frozen.
Want to meld together the sweet and savoury? You can totally make these more like latkes and serve them with a little apple sauce on top. Yes, these MIGHT be making an appearance at my Hannukah party.

Loaded Potato Waffles
- 6 poached or fried eggs
- Plain Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
- Cheddar cheese grated
- Bacon bits
- Chives minced
- Grate the potatoes in a bowl filled with cold water to prevent them from browning.
- When ready to serve, squeeze the liquid out of the potatoes and transfer the grated potatoes into a large bowl. Add in the oil, salt, pepper, chives, cheese and eggs and stir until well combined.
- Preheat your waffle maker to a medium high heat setting. Add a third of the potatoes to the grate and cook until golden brown. Repeat with the remaining potatoes.
- Cut each in half and serve topped with sour cream or yogurt, cheese, bacon, chives and a poached egg on top. Enjoy!
