Mashed Potato Cheddar Bacon Waffles #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Using leftover mashed potatoes, these crispy favorites are a cross between a potato pancake or latke and a waffle!  Grabbing left over mashed potatoes along with a few ingredients and your waffle iron, you can create magic to serve along side your eggs and toast!

Sponsor shoutout! Cabot cheese provided me with cheese for Brunch week for recipe development. I used their extra sharp cheddar cheese in  this recipe, and it was perfect for bringing out a great pop of flavor to the mild potatoes.

 Don't forget to join in the Brunch Week Giveaway at the end of this post, after all the other great Brunch Week recipes! Lots of great prizes from our sponsors, including from today's sponsor!

My family just loves these potato waffles! I love to make them on a Sunday and just make a nice Breakfast style dinner in the evening. Add in a big pile of warm scrambled eggs and sour dough toast with real butter. and have over all of the kids that can come home for dinner. It makes an easy and fun meal that everyone enjoys!

Shall we get cooking?

  1. I love brunch because my husband usually cooks all of most of the meal. I like savory and sweet brunch dishes, but if I had to pick a favorite of choose pancakes with pure maple syrup. Yummy 😋
