I’m on a leftover-mashed-potato kick this week
and am realizing there are SO many ways to transform them
for another meal so that they don’t really resemble their original state.
Like a potato disguise.
….I pulled together my ingredients
…hauled out my little boat waffle iron.
…and was very pleased with the results.
…potatoes in disguise.
WAFFLED MASHED POTATOES
with SMOKED SALMON
makes about 12 waffles
what you will need
2 cups mashed potatoes
sea salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup plain yogurt
(or 1/2 cup milk with 1 tsp vinegar or lemon juice)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
several small slices of smoked salmon
several tablespoons plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
sprinkling of dill
putting it together
Taste your potatoes to see if more salt and pepper is needed.
Mix eggs, potatoes, oil and yogurt together.
Combine flour with soda and powder
and fold into potato mixture.
On heated waffle iron drop about 1/2 cup of mixture
onto each side and close the lid.
Don’t be tempted to lift the lid until the steam subsides.
My little waffle iron is really basic so I have to flip to brown both sides.
Over medium heat it took about 2 minutes per side.
Keep your waffles warm while you make the rest.
When ready to plate,
top each waffle with a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Next, top with a sliver of smoked salmon.
Sprinkle with dill and cracked pepper and a few capers.
My potatoes in disguise.
Such a pretty and elegant looking dish from such humble beginnings.
