"Everything" Seasoning:

1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

2 teaspoons poppy seeds 

1 teaspoon dried minced garlic 

1 teaspoon dried minced onion 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 


2 medium russet potatoes, peeled

3/4 cup all-purpose flour 

1 teaspoon baking powder 

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 

2 large eggs 

1/2 cup whole milk 

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 

2 scallions, chopped 

For Serving:

8 ounces smoked salmon

1/2 cup creme fraiche 

1 tablespoon capers 

1/4 cup small dill sprigs


Special equipment:
a waffle iron
  1. For the "everything" seasoning: In a small bowl, stir together the sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, dried onion and salt. Set aside.
  2. For the waffles: Coarsely grate the potatoes on a box grater. Wrap the grated potatoes in a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out the excess moisture. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and 1 tablespoon of the "everything" seasoning together in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, eggs, milk, butter and scallions; stir to combine.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron. Using 1/3 cup batter per waffle, cook the waffles for about 4 minutes (or according to manufacturer's directions). With an offset spatula, flip the waffles and cook an additional 2 minutes, or until they're a deep golden brown. As you go, transfer the cooked waffles to a baking sheet and keep warm in a low oven.
  4. To serve: Top the waffles with smoked salmon and a dollop of creme fraiche, sprinkle with capers and "everything" seasoning, and garnish with a dill sprig.
