Start your mornings right with these savoury waffles (crisped to perfection in a waffle iron) topped with smoked salmon and sour cream.


  • 16 frozen hash-brown patties, thawed and torn (about 9 cups)

  • 3 green onions, chopped

  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tbsp butter, melted

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 2 113-g pkgs smoked salmon

  • 1 tbsp chopped chives


  • Pulse hash browns in a food processor until crumbled. Transfer to a large bowl, then stir in green onions, onion, eggs, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle in flour and stir until just combined.

  • Place a wire rack over a baking sheet and set aside.

  • Preheat waffle iron to medium-high, then brush top and bottom plates with butter. Mound each waffle section with ½ cup packed potato mixture. Close waffle iron and cook until browned and crispy, 10 to 12 min.

  • Transfer waffles to prepared rack. Repeat with remaining potato mixture. Store in a sealable container and refrigerate for up to 5 days or serve warm topped with sour cream, smoked salmon and chives.
