Super easy, Potato, Egg and Cheese Waffles (with bacon!)


When it comes to weekend breakfasts at our house, if you want something other than cereal or oatmeal, hubby tends to be the cook.

I get up early during the week with the kids, and for some reason, I just can’t find the motivation to cook a big breakfast on the weekend. I do cook pretty much every night, though. Sometimes, it’s an elaborate spread, and other times, it’s just something simple.  (I like to cook, but I want it to be easy.)

On busy nights, my trick for keeping meal prep easy is to use pre-prepared food items- like pre-chopped and pre-washed bagged veggies and pre-cooked and shredded potatoes.  

These bacon, potato, egg, and cheese waffles are great for breakfast, but they’re even better for dinner.  

The kids are always excited when they find out we’re having breakfast for dinner.  (There’s just something about the idea of breakfast foods at dinner time that makes it feel like an extra special treat, and this meal is perfect for the night’s dad works late.)

I used my waffle maker for this recipe, but if you don’t have one, they would be just as yummy scrambled or cooked pancake-style!

    Thank you for your recipe , I dislike the videos that do NOT give you the amount of ingredients

  2. We loved this. I used Potatoes O’Brien and it was over the top good. We dipped the waffle in little ramikens of pancake syrup. Yum……thanks for the recipe.

  3. Have you tried freezing and reheating? And how did you do it?

    1. Jamie Sanders says:

      No I haven’t tried freezing and reheating. But I would think you could defrost them in the microwave for about a minute and then pop them in the toaster to make them toasty. How awesome would that be?

  4. Made these with Hidden Valley seasoned frozen hashbrowns, thawed. I thought they were pretty good with salsa and sour cream. Husband wanted a little syrup on it next time. We’ll see.

  5. These sound amazing. Do you think these could be made in advance and frozen? Then reheated in a toaster oven for a couple minutes? Kinda like a breakfast on the go

    1. I am certain you could! Such a smart idea. I haven tried it, so I can’t recommend a heating time. If you do give this a shot, be sure to come back and let us know how long the waffles took to reheat.
