It’s Sunday morning and your friends ask you to go out to brunch – what’s your go to breakfast/brunch option? (Comment below) My go to breakfast meal is either an egg sandwich or a skillet, but there have been so many times where I can’t decide whether I want something sweet rather than savory. I also never want to be that person that orders a sandwich, skillet, and then a side of pancakes while the rest of the crowd is eating something healthy.
A hash brown in waffle form that acts as the "bread" of the sandwich.
- 6-8 small Idaho Potatoes
- 1 Jalapeno finely diced and seeded
- 4 Cloves Garlic minced
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 3 Tbsp Butter half stick melted
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 2 eggs + 1 for binding
- 1 Avocado
Option to peel the potatoes or leave the skin on.
Grate the potatoes on a potato grater and squeeze out any moisture using a paper towel or cheese cloth. Place potatoes in a bowl once drained.
Whisk an egg in a small bowl and set aside.
Pour the egg over the bowl of potatoes and mix until incorporated. The egg acts as a bind.
Melt the butter and mix with olive oil, jalapeno, and minced garlic. Add salt & pepper to taste.
Preheat the waffle maker to medium heat (you can also just make these on a skillet if you don't have a waffle maker).
Once preheated, carefully pour the potatoes in the waffle maker about 3/4 full in each slot.
Allow to cook for about 5-8 minutes (depending on your setting).*
Remove from waffle maker once golden brown and crispy.
Cook your eggs as you wish (I always do over easy). Once cooked, place egg on one side of the waffle hash brown. Add avocado, cheese, and any other toppings.
Place the other side and squeeze sandwich together.
*Option to cook potatoes for just a few minutes on a skillet prior to adding to waffle maker.
If cooking directly on a skillet rather than waffle maker, allow a cast iron or skillet pan to heat up over medium-low heat until warm to touch. Place the potatoes on the skillet about 1 inch thick and pour the olive oil, butter, and garlic mixture (no egg needed for this) over the potatoes an allow to sit (don't you dare flip the potatoes yet) for about 4-5 minutes (or until browned on the bottom). Try to flip potatoes in one flip to keep patty shape.
