Some people might like these but I didn't think it was worth all the ingredients and the time it took to make the waffles. I made it exactly as stated, except for the baking powder which I forgot to add. I had trouble with the waffles separating (the top half sticking to the top half of the waffle maker) until I learned to smash the top of the waffle maker down until it touched the bottom, which made a thinner waffle that stayed together much better. Overall though, I prefer mashed potatoes.

Using a potato pancake mix, which you'll find at the market near the instant mashed potatoes, cut preparation time. Serve as a side dish with beef or pork.
