Ingredients
  • 2 small all-purpose potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for brushing waffle iron
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Smoked salmon and sour cream, for serving
  • Special equipment: waffle iron (preferably for thin waffles)
Directions

Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Peel the potatoes, then shred on a box grater. Squeeze out the excess liquid into a bowl and reserve.

Combine the shredded potatoes, butter, chives, 2 teaspoons of the potato liquid, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper.

Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with melted butter. Pour a scant 1/2 cup of the potato batter into the waffle iron, close gently and cook until golden and crisp, 4 to 8 minutes. Keep the cooked waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you make the remaining waffles.

Top the waffled hash browns with smoked salmon, dollop with sour cream and sprinkle with chives.

Cook's Note: The waffles can be frozen in resealable plastic bags for up to 1 month. Reheat in a toaster oven or 300 degrees F oven until warmed through and crisp.
