The waffle maker is an excellent tool to not only make delicious sweet waffles that are more of a dessert, like Belgian waffles, but can be used for delicious savory meals too, like these incredible Potato Waffles. They taste very similar to potato pancakes or latkes but are thicker and have a crisp, golden crust that the waffle maker creates.
