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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Coat a waffle iron with cooking spray, and preheat.

Step 2

Combine baking powder and potato pancake mix in a large bowl. Place milk, sour cream, and egg in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add milk mixture to potato pancake mixture, stirring until smooth. Fold in cheese and chives.

Step 3

Spoon about 1/2 cup batter onto hot waffle iron, spreading batter to edges. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until done; repeat procedure with remaining batter.

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.

We make this recipe every year for Chanukah and love it! It's easy; it's delicious, it's a creative way to make potato pancakes. Best if you let the batter sit in the fridge for a few hours.
