We’ve been craving comfort here lately. …& These savory Mashed Potato, Bacon, Spinach & Herbed Goat Cheese Waffles hit the spot! We used sweet potatoes for this batch. However, they are equally delicious using white potatoes. We used our Herbs de Provence Chèvre & topped them with a little Sour Cream & fresh chives, but when it comes toppings that would work…the sky is the limit! Get creative! We typically double the recipe so that we can enjoy them for dinner with a yummy spring mix salad….& then eat the leftovers the next day for brunch!
- 2 cups Mashed Potatoes (White Potatoes or Sweet Potatoes)
- 1/2 cup MC Herbs de Provence Chevre
- 1/2 cup Flour
- 1 Egg
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/3 cup Whole Milk
- 1/4 cup cooked Bacon, chopped
- 1 cup Baby Spinach, chopped
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- Pinch of Black Pepper
- Sour Cream, Chives, Avocado, or Ketchup or condiment of choice for topping!
Preheat your waffle iron to the medium-high setting. We then spray ours with a nonstick olive oil spray.
In a large bowl mix together the mashed potatoes, olive oil, egg, whole milk, bacon pieces, goat cheese crumbled and spinach until it is combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and black pepper
Next add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
Add about 1/2 of the batter to the center of the waffle iron. Next spread the batter out so that some batter covers at least part of each triangle. It will be a very thick batter. Once you have it smoothed out a bit, close the waffle iron and cook until either your waffle iron says that it’s ready or about 4-6 minutes.
We delicately then remove the waffle from the waffle iron and then transfer it to a plate, and then repeat with the rest of the batter.
We mentioned earlier that we enjoy them with Sour Cream & fresh chives, but we also think that there are plenty of other toppings that would be amazing! So please, if you make these, let us know how you enjoy them by leaving a comment below. Enjoy!
