Ready for the best lunch of your life? All you need is a potato. And an egg.
Oh – and your waffle iron......
1 russet potato, peeled
salt and pepper
Using a box grater (on the large holes) or food processor, grate the potato, and place in a bowl of cold water. Let sit for about 10 minutes, while you heat up your waffle iron.
Working with a handful of potato at a time (about 1/2 cup, packed), place in the center of a tea towel and twist and squeeze to remove as much water as possible.
When the iron is heated, brush a little butter into the center (a silicone brush is handy for this). Place your potato shreds in the center; sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Close the iron and cook till golden brown (about 10 minutes on my iron, on the highest setting; times may vary).
Using a thin spatula, gently transfer your hash brown to a serving plate – repeat with remaining potato. Top as desired; serve immediately.
TOPPINGS: I topped mine with a fried egg and a few shavings of parmesan. But I'm thinking of trying a little truffle salt. Or a really good olive oil.
