How do I make these Onion and Chive Potato Waffles?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.
First up, the waffles. You need one of two things. Either a waffle maker or a silicone waffle mould. If you’re using silicone they’ll take about 30 minutes, whereas a waffle maker will take 10 minutes.

We use this waffle maker by JMPosner. It’s cheap, easy to clean and gets the job done. No leaking, no waiting ages for it to heat up, it gets the job done well.

Or you can use a silicone waffle mould. They’re super cheap, but do take longer in the oven. You can also get them on Amazon, just make sure to get one on prime. Or else you might be waiting for a few weeks whilst one arrives from China!

If you’re worried about making poaching eggs, don’t be! We use silicone egg poachers which you can grab off Amazon. They’re the easiest way to make the perfect poached egg & dead easy to clean too.

  1. Can you look at this recipe please? The ingredients say onion powder and the method (for the silicone mould) says garlic powder. Also cheese is mentioned in the method but not in the ingredients (see point 4.) I notice that the method for the waffle maker says onion powder and no cheese is mentioned so assume the silicon mould method is incorrect. !

  2. Hi, just made these (without the onions or onion granules as did not have either in) using my new Aldi waffle maker. Yum and great instead or bread with beans and egg for my lunch x

  3. Do you need the smash as i dont have any tonight and would like to try it with my salmon in the morning, sound realy nice 😆

    1. Hi Karen
      You can leave it out but you must make sure the potatoes are very dry and it holds together when mashed

  4. What a lovely recipe, just made these for dinner with pork & beans, absolutely lush. Love your recipes ladies, will be a fan forever 💜🍴💜

  5. Could you make the mixture and leave in the fridge ready for each morning? Couldn’t imagine preparing this in the morning lol thanks

  6. Hi, this might be a stupid question but how soft is ‘fairly soft’? I take it this means a bit firmer than a baked potato, approximately how long in the microwave have people tried?

  7. Can you heat these in an oven/grill? If so how long for please? Just made the mixture and realised I haven’t got a waffle maker! Thanks

  8. Do I have to grate the potato? Can I just break it down with a fork? Hate grating cooked pots! Thanks.
    Any recipes in the offing for 1? Getting fed up of working out enough for 1 as I don’t have a big freezer to freeze extra?

  9. Dadt question. Chives are in title and in ingredients list but not in method?? Should i use them instead of or as well as spring onions?? Thanks im advance 🙂

  10. Good morning. What is “smash”? I cannot find any info on what this is, either in the recipe or on the internet, and I’ve never heard of this reference. Sounds like it might be cornstarch, considering what it sounds like it’s supposed to do, but I wanted to ask before I use this recipe and possibly mess it up. Thanks

  11. I am confused by the references to smash in the comments because it doesn’t appear in the list ingredients. Can you clarify please? Thanks.

  12. I think a link is broken in this recipe. The ingredients don’t seem to change when the number of portions is changed.

    1. Hi Liz,

      This is working for me – you need to give it a second to catch up when you change the portion size 😊
