Waffles, Toast and Tater-Flats

Just a quick post to share with you the newest member of my kitchen, a gently used waffle maker I acquired from my papa.

After some vigorous cleaning I decided to put it to good use. I made waffles, toast and tater-flats! Yes, you read correctly Tater-FLATS ๐Ÿ™‚

It was definitely a good morning for breakfast. Let me show you what I did. For the waffles I used this recipe from The Pioneer Women. I won’t get into the details of making waffles since her step-by-step recipe is so easy to follow. My waffle making skills still need some polishing but all in all they look pretty yummy!

Next is my toast, the most basic of them all, I just slathered some butter on both sides and closed the lid. Thats it! Now if you want to spruce it up a bit add a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar and be amazed. It kinda taste like a flat churro only buttery ๐Ÿ™‚

Last but not least are the tater-flats I made using this technique from America’s Test Kitchen. Here’s how I made them.

Your Ingredients:
2 1/4 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 quart peanut or vegetable oil (if your gonna deep fry them)

1. Whisk 1 cup water and salt together in bowl until salt dissolves.
2. Grate your raw potatoes and add them to your salty water. The original recipe uses a food processor but I don’t have one so I used a grater which I think works just as well.

3. Drain your potatoes in a strainer or cheese cloth by squeezing potatoes until dry.

4. Microwave the potatoes uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes, stir halfway through cooking process
5. Add your flour and pepper into the cooked potatoes
