Rosti Potato Waffles Recipe

You’ll never look a waffle iron the same way after you see Twisted’s potato waffle recipe.

Done in 20 minutes



What you'll need:

1 kgMaris Piper potatoes

1 brown onion

1 tbspFlaked sea salt

1 tbspVegetable oil, to grease waffle iron

Twisted's ultimate potato waffle, the least amount of effort - is this music to your ears? It's crispy it, fluffy, it's waffly and we love it. Serve it with whatever you like. Fried chicken, cheese, caviar - the world is your oyster. Inspired by a potato rosti I once ate in Switzerland.


Peel and grate the potatoes using the finer side of the grater - this will help them cook more quickly in the waffle iron.

Grate or blend the onion and mix this through the potatoes, along with the salt, until thorough combined.

Lay the potato/onion mixture over a clean piece of cheesecloth or a very clean tea towel. Bring up the sides and squeeze as much moisture from the mixture as possible.

Oil the waffle iron and take a large handful of the potato mixture. Place it in the iron and close, without pressing down all the way and squashing the waffle. Cook for around 15-20 mins until crisp on the outside and cooked all the way through.
