Potato Waffle Melt

Potato Waffle Melt
(4 servings)


1½ cups Leftover Mashed Potatoes
1 cup Buttermilk
2 large Fresh Eggs
¼ cup Unsalted Butter, melted
4-5 Sage Leaves, minced
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
½ tsp. Baking Powder
½ cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
½ lb. Sliced Turkey (leftover works well)
1 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
1 medium Avocado, lightly mashed
as needed Salt and Pepper
4-6 oz. Brie Cheese, sliced
½ cup Cranberry Sauce (leftover works well)


To make the waffles.  In a medium bowl whisk together the mashed potatoes, buttermilk, eggs and melted butter until smooth.  Then stir in the sage.  Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and stir until just combined.  Fold in cheese.  Pre-heat waffle maker (see note).  When ready scoop batter into hot greased waffle maker and spread out with back of a spoon.  Cook according to waffle maker.  Repeat until batter is gone.  Prep sandwiches by heating a skillet and melting butter in it.  Add the turkey and crisp up cooking about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Mash avocado and season with salt and pepper to taste.  To assemble sandwiches, spread avocado over half the waffles you made.  Divide half the brie over the avocado, top with turkey and then cranberry sauce.  Divide remaining brie over the sauce and top with remaining waffle pieces.  Place sandwiches on a lined baking sheet and put in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for about 5 minutes and enough to melt brie but not overdo it.  Serve immediately.

Note:               If using a round waffle maker, break waffle into the 4 wedges indicated on the waffle.  If using a square waffle maker, just leave them whole.  Should make 4-5 waffles.

Note.                If you want to make it more
                        extreme, add 8 slices Thick-
                        cut Bacon, cooked before you
                        add last of brie in sandwich.
                        Then top finished sandwiches
                        with 4 large eggs, cooked to
                        your specs.  Cook eggs while
                        sandwiches are in the oven.
