I love potato waffles. They are a healthy alternative to the classic hash brown and make a great breakfast, lunch or even dinner. You can be totally free in experimenting with the toppings and serve them either sweet with some apple sauce or cinnamon and sugar or savoury with smoked salmon and cream cheese. There are so many options. The best thing is, you use almost no oil so the house won't smell too much when you are making them and they are a great snack the next day in your lunchbox. You could also make smaller mini waffles for the kids and put them in their lunchboxes. 

To keep the waffles warm while making the rest I place them in my Thermi servebowls which are perfect for keeping food hot or cold for ages. You can preheat the bowls in the oven and then place each waffle in the bowls, sealing with the silicone lid to lock in the lovely flavours. 


  • 500 g Maris Piper potatoes peeled & quartered
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 2 large eggs
  • 50 g porridge oats
  • 75 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 20 g vegetable oil for frying
  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 80 g cream cheese
  • 80 g sour cream
  • 15 g chives chopped finely
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper


  1. For the waffles, place the potatoes, onion, eggs, porridge oats, plain flour and salt in the mixing bowl. Chop 7 Sec. / Speed 5. Fill the mixture into a bowl and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat a waffle iron and lightly oil it. The waffles don't contain any fat so make sure to keep oiling the waffle iron slightly before putting the next waffle in. Once hot, place 2-3 Tbsp of the batter into the waffle iron, spreading it slightly. Cook for 5 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and place in a Thermi Servebowl until all waffles are finished. Repeat with the other waffles.

  3. Clean the mixing bowl. Place the cream cheese, sour cream, chives, salt and pepper in the mixing bowl. Combine 10 Sec. / Speed 2.5. Place in a serving bowl. Serve the waffles with a few slices of smoked salmon and a good dollop of the chive cream cheese.

    Can you also use pumpkin instead of potato?

      Oh, I have never tried it but definitely worth a go 🙂 You might find that you will need to add a little extra starch like corn flour to ensure it is the same texture.

    Yummie. Made it today for lunch. Easy and tasty. Will try it some day with ingredients like bacon, mackerel or other.
    Try it – it is definitely recommendable.

    Follow-up on my last post. Made it today as my lunch version of English breakfast. Baked beans, fried tomatoes, bacon and scrambled eggs. Yup! Go for it.
