Check out these fun, easy to make Hash Brown Waffles. We have potatoes fairly frequently at our house so I am always trying to keep things interesting!
What makes this recipe so easy? I used frozen, shredded hash brown potatoes. Not only do you avoid having to shred them yourself, but you can skip the step of wringing out all the moisture.
I love using hash browns in breakfast casseroles. Check out my Gluten Free Sausage and Hash Brown Casserole. I made it for Easter brunch this year and it was delicious! But that big bag of hash browns was way too much for the recipe. So when I noticed the half empty bag sitting in back of the freezer I thought I’d try something different to use them up.
When shopping, look for plain, unseasoned shredded hash browns. Not all hash browns are gluten free, so check for the gluten free label or verify that there are no gluten containing ingredients.

- 1/2 lb. (8 oz.) frozen gluten free shredded hash brown potatoes
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- 1/4 tsp. garlic granules
- 2 tsp. dried onion flakes
- 1/4 tsp. seasoned salt
- salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
- 1/8 tsp. paprika
- 1 egg
- cooking spray
Take the hash browns out to thaw about 30 minutes ahead of time, they do not have to be completely defrosted.
Whisk together the egg, oil and seasonings.
Add the hash browns and stir together with a spatula until evenly coated.
Heat the waffle iron to 350º and mist with cooking spray. Scoop the hash brown mixture onto the waffle plate and spread them out in an even layer with a spatula. Use all of the hash browns, they will cook down quite a bit as the potatoes release their liquid.
Cook for 10 minutes, then check every few minutes to see how they’re doing. Mine took about 20 minutes total to get nicely browned with crispy edges.
Gently lift one corner and slide a spatula underneath to move the waffles to a cutting board.
Use a knife or pizza wheel to break waffles into 4 sections.
The waffles are best eaten immediately. They will lose some of their crispiness as they cool off.
If you have leftovers, they can be reheated on a pizza stone, in an air fryer, or in the toaster (toaster bags are recommended!).
Notes ♪♫ Who knew that you could make something other than waffles on a waffle iron? Since I got my new waffle maker, I’ve had such fun experimenting. Check out my Gluten Free Crab Cake Waffles, and of course my favorite Gluten Free Banana Waffles!
