Recipe: Potato Waffles


Potato waffles are even better than regular waffles. Because potatoes. And bacon. And cheese. Great, now we want potato waffles. Better still, this is inspired by a traditional kugel recipe.


  • 16 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 800 g medium white potatoes
  • 40 g cornflour
  • 40 g parmesan
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 Other fresh chives
  • 1 dollop sour cream
fry bacon and onion

Step 1

Fry Bacon And Onion

Dice the bacon as fine as possible, then peel and dice the onion. Fry half of the bacon in the oil with the onions for 5 minutes until the onions are soft and sweet and the bacon golden.

Add the egg

Step 2

Add The Egg

Transfer both to a large mixing bowl and crack in the eggs. Fry the other half of the bacon in the now empty pan to go crispy and keep to garnish later.

Step 3

Add The Potato

Peel and grate the potatoes into a second bowl, then place into a cheesecloth or clean tea towel and twist/squeeze as much liquid out as possible. Stir the dried potato into the eggs with the cornflour, grated Parmesan and seasoning.
