  • 1 cup refrigerated hash browns if using frozen, thaw and pat dry
  • 1/4 cup Challenge Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 5 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tbsp chopped chives

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add potatoes and cook for 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and let cool.
  • Whisk flour and baking powder together in a large bowl. Whisk in milk and eggs until smooth.
  • Stir in cheese, bacon, chives, and potatoes.

Tips for Freezing

  • Place waffles on a parchment lined baking sheet making sure they don't touch. Place baking sheet in freezer for 30-60 minutes to "flash" freeze the waffles. Place frozen waffles in a ziploc bag and store for up to three weeks in freezer. To reheat, place in the toaster and toast until heated through.
