    I try to create delicious and nourishing breakfasts every week. Even though our schedules are very busy and our day starts at dawn, we try not to skip breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day – it boosts energy, increases concentration and gets you through those morning hours. By starting your day with a protein-packed breakfast, you are more likely to be efficient and effective throughout the day.

    These sausage and potato waffles are simple and convenient, yet hearty and wholesome. They are perfect for those rushed mornings when you need a quick breakfast – they are easier to make than you think. Just brown the sausage, mix it with mashed potatoes, eggs and flour, and cook the mixture in the waffle maker for about 3 minutes. All you need is just a few minutes for delicious and filling waffles.

    5 Tips for Making The Best Potato Waffles in a Waffle Iron

      1. Add baking powder to the potato mixture for fluffy and light waffles.
      2. Use eggs and flour for the best consistency of the waffles.
      3. Spray preheated waffle iron with a cooking spray to ensure the waffle slides right out. Spray cooking spray between waffles as needed.
      4. Preheat the waffle iron for about 5 minutes and make sure it’s hot. This will ensure that the waffles are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
      5. Cook waffles at a medium-low setting for about 3 minutes so you don’t burn the waffles.

      Using my waffle iron is a huge time saver when I need to make breakfast quickly. I love that I can make the sausage and potato waffles on Sunday evening and have breakfast for a couple of days during the week. It’s easy, quick, and absolutely delicious!

    • Heat oil over medium-high heat and brown sausage until cooked. (You can use the sausage patties in their original form)
    • Mix cooked sausage, mashed potatoes, eggs, flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, and chives in a large mixing bowl until well combined. The mixture will be very thick. 
    • Spray waffle iron with olive oil spray and preheat it on medium low. When hot and ready, spread the mixture in the waffle maker, close the lid, and cook for about 3 minutes. 
    • Serve warm and top with avocado slices.

    Why gluten free flour? Can you use regular? I resist buying special ingredients for just one recipe.

      Neli | Delicious Meets Healthy

      yes, absolutely! You can use regular flour. It’s just a personal preference but it works perfectly with regular flour.


    I love your savory take on waffles. Breakfast will never be the same!

    RAW mashed potatoes?

      Delicious Meets Healthy

      When referring to mashed potatoes in the States, we mean cooked potatoes that are mashed.
      Hope you like the recipe 🙂
