You know what they say, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!” And, remember we love you, but we’re here to remind you that a bowl of sugary cereal is not, in fact, a balanced breakfast. Make sure you give your little ones the sustenance they each day to get them up and energized and out the door!

We love this super easy recipe because it’s super fast and has all of the breakfast ingredients you need in one hand-held waffle. But, forget the syrup with this waffle recipe because we’re going savory this time with this Mashed Potato Waffle with ham, cheddar cheese, and chives. YUM!

If you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we’re big fans of potatoes from Green Giant™ Fresh and these new Minute Mashers™ make mashed potatoes in literally seven minutes flat. No need to boil water, gather ingredients, or peel potatoes – just put the whole package in the microwave and cook for seven minutes. That’s it! Then, using oven mitts, smash and mash to your desired potato texture. It’s really that simple guys. No need to cut open the bag, remove any portion of the package, or add anything to the microwave – you just pop the bag in the microwave to cook, mash, and serve!

Now, we all love a little sweetness every now and then, but when you start the day with a savory breakfast studies show that your blood sugar is more stable throughout the day. That’s why we’re avoiding syrupy sweet confections first thing in the morning and going for potatoes instead. This mashed potato waffle has the protein, fiber, and fat that you need to stay satisfied and to fuel your body for busy days ahead. And Minute Mashers™ make it easy to create this recipe in just minutes!
