Mashed Potato Waffle Burgers

If your heart is yearning for a southern soul food or you just happen to have leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge then this is for you!


  • 3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 Tblspn butter, softened
  • 1/4 tspn onion powder
  • 1/2 tspn garlic powder
  • 1 Tbspn parsley
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1/4 to 1/2 Cup flour
  • 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1lb ground beef seasoned as preferred
  • 1 packet brown gravy


Preheat waffle iron

Mix potatoes, butter, dry seasonings, followed by milk, do not mix smooth

Add cheese and flour, again not until smooth - the lumps help hold your mixture together.

Create hamburger patties and cook to desired doneness, set aside.

Coat waffle iron with a nonstick spray before EACH waffle - this is key as to not separate the waffle when opening the iron. 

Scoop 1/4 Cup of potato mixture per waffle (1/2 Cup for the big round waffle irons) allow to sit for 30 seconds before closing the iron lid.  This 'sets' your waffle as to not spread too thin. 

Cook until outsides are a dark golden brown and crispy.

Cool on a wire rack - this allows air below and above and keeps your creation crispy. 

Prepare brown gravy as directed on package.


Start with a waffle on bottom

Add a meat patty

Add any extra desired ingredients like cheese, veggies, etc.

Drizzle gravy ontop of concoction

Top with another potato waffle

You can even put more gravy ontop of the waffle if you want, its a bit messier but very delicious!  I suggest using a fork for this burger - Enjoy!
