Waffle maker , hash browns .
I've got some frozen hash browns and I let them thaw and I kind of broke them up and separated them and I'm gonna mix in some melted butter .
Yeah , salt and pepper .
Very , very simple .
You can see that the hash browns are pretty dry even with the melted butter .
That's because after I thawed them and broke them up , I put them in between paper towels and really squeezed out the excess water .
That way the hash browns will get nice and crispy .
Those are all mixed together .
Now , I'm gonna build the waffle maker .
Hash browns .
I've got the waffle maker preheated .
It's on medium heat .
I don't want to burn the potatoes and I'm gonna spray the waffle maker really well with non stick cooking spray just to give myself a fighting chance .
And then I'll grab a half cup measure and see how that quantity is for each .
Well , I think that is gonna be just right .
So I'll stick the hash browns in first and then I'll get to work .
I want to spread them out .
You really need to work it right from the beginning and get them all distributed .
Oh my gosh .
I'll bet these are gonna be so good cheese .
Of course , I'm gonna add some cheddar .
So I'm just doing a nice light layer .
It's probably the only time in my life I've ever added a nice light layer of cheese .
And by the way , light is a relative term .
I'm also gonna add some meat .
I've got the thin deli ham that I used in the omelet and I wanna put it pretty much where it's gonna stay because this stuff is not gonna move around once I shut the waffle maker .
Last one .
And then I'll put hash browns right on top .
I'm not gonna stick quite as many on the top layer .
Up close the waffle maker .
Oh , listen to that sizzle .
I'm gonna let him go for 15 minutes and then we'll see where we're up to .
I am so excited to see what these hash browns look like .
I'm in love .
Absolutely in love .
They smell so good .
Here we go .
Oh my gosh .
They're so crispy and sizzling .
And one is definitely not gonna be enough .
I'm gonna get another one .
