We were so inspired by this brilliant recipe for Waffle Iron Hash Browns on Tablespoon that we had to give it a go. It can be difficult to get a perfect crust on your morning hash browns. Not anymore! These crispy hash browns are as easy as tossing some frozen tater tots into your waffle iron and pressing down.

While you can certainly use frozen tater tots for this recipe, the cooking time will be much longer. We recommend thawing the tater tots first.

  1. 1 Step 1

    Gather the Ingredients

    Only two ingredients and a waffle iron are needed for this quick and easy breakfast recipe.

  2. 2 Step 2

    Place Tots in Waffle Iron

    Spray a hot waffle iron generously with nonstick cooking spray. Place Ore-Ida Tater Tots on top of the hot waffle iron.

  3. 3 Step 3

    Press Down Lid

    Press the waffle iron closed, using slight pressure to gently lower the lid over the tater tots.

  4. 4 Step 4

    Check for Gaps

    After 1 minute, open the waffle iron and check for any gaps that you can fill in with more tots. Close the lid and cook until crispy and golden brown.

  5. 5 Step 5
