Waffle Iron Hash Browns

These Waffle Iron Hash Browns are SO crispy and easy to make with frozen potatoes. Add onions and cheese for even more flavor!


  • 1 1/4 cup frozen hash browns
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup onions, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh chives, diced
  • Salt/pepper, to taste
  • Nonstick cooking spray


  • Preheat the waffle iron and coat the top and bottom with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine all ingredients together in a small bowl and place in the pre-heated waffle iron. Waffle iron sizes may differ but simply load it up with as much potato mixture as will comfortably fit. It will decrease in size as it cooks. Top the potatoes with a little more nonstick cooking spray.
  • Close the waffle iron and wait until the indicator says that it’s done, about 4 minutes. (Or just under 2 minutes on each side if yours rotates)
  • Open the lid. If you would like for the potatoes to be crispier or cooked further, simply close the lid and continue to cook. You can check on them as often as you want to until your desired consistency is obtained.
  • Use a fork to lift the potatoes out of the iron. Place on a serving plate and top with a delicious egg if desired!


I used Grown in Idaho thick cut hash browns for this recipe.
