Recipe: Mashed Potato Waffles

Recipe: Mashed Potato WafflesRecipe: Mashed Potato Waffles
Summary: Mr Ask is the King of Breakfast! His perfect waffles are, well, perfect but the other day he came up with these. Oh how I love the savoury goodness of these delicious Mashed Potato Waffles. Side dish, snack, breakfast, brunch. With sour cream, bacon or just on their own – delicious! We never have left over mashed potatoes because mashed potato is awesome but we always have frozen mash. If you are using frozen, use a saucepan instead of a frypan and add the mash to the onions until it’s defrosted. The flour ratio is just right for frozen mash, which is quite stiff but you may need a little more if you are using homemade. This recipe makes four waffles but can be doubled, tripled or more!
  • 2 tblsp garlic oil  
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 375g mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup plain flour (or more if you need it)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  1. Add the oil and onion to a fry pan and cook until onion is soft,  about 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Preheat waffle maker.
  3. Combine onion mix and everything else in a bowl until it becomes a stiffish uniform mix. Add a little extra flour if you need it, you are going for thickish cake batter.
  4. Lightly spray waffle maker with cooking spray. Scoop 1/4 of the potato mix to the center of waffle iron and close lid. Cook until golden brown.
  5. Serve with sour cream, that is if you can stop yourself from eating then straight off the waffle maker!

Guest Post: Holly from Stitch It With Style!Hi Ask Sarah readers! I’m Holly I blog over on Stitch It With Style about vintage, sewing and lifestyle.

I am a textiles student from the UK and love to sew..and I mean LOVE! Ever since I was about 14 I have had an interest in sewing, I loved my textiles lessons at school and longed to have my own sewing machine at home so I could continue it. I got my first sewing machine when I was 15, a lidl’s special – we all have to start somewhere right? I was constantly on it making things for my room like cushions and curtains and headboards, I even had a go at upcycling old units – I loved it! I’ve gone through a sewing machine a year but now I have invested in one I hope that lasts me a bit more than just a year?!

Guest Post: Holly from Stitch It With Style!I don’t really know where the idea came to set up my own business but I know I loved showing my products to other people and seeing their reaction. I remember when I was on a walk and I kept thinking of names of what I could call it, one was ‘sewing in style’ but I’m glad I kept with ‘stitch it with style’ as I feel it really gives a sense as to what I do. So today I thought I’d just show you what I do and give you a sense to what my blog is about.

A recent post was all about upcycling using Annie Sloan paint. I created a stall with a gorgeous floral print to cover the main seat. Here is the post, see how it turned out!

Second Look Sunday 27 July 2014

Second Look Sunday 27 July 2014Second Look Sunday 27 July 2014

This week was full of appointments, errands, follow up and just stuff! I am making the most of this Sunday. I’m going spend the day in my PJ’s and so some embroidery. I might even get a around to a little pampering exfoliating & moisturizing. It’s always nice to start the week refreshed.

  • Mr Ask was playing 80′s songs in the car & I asked him ‘whatever happened to The Manikins? I googled them but they seem to have disappeared’. I couldn’t remember how the name was spelt or anything else about them. I just remembered one bit of the lyrics. Mr Ask googled furiously, we thought we’d hit a dead end (only another comment with someone else wondering what happened to them) and then he found the track I was after on youtube!! He also bought me the CD he found on US eBay. Such a good man!
  • Have you been watching @midnight? If not, you should it’s funny! And occasionally terrifying, the Internet is a strange place….
  • I cleaned my makeup brushes last Sunday (and I admit it was overdue) but I realized the difference it made when the day after Mr Ask complimented my makeup and asked what I did differently…. Let that be a lesson we can all learn from! 
  • I have a new favourite blog, that has made me weep with laughter! It’s the true stories of a seamstress who alters bridal and formal wear. The unreasonable requests and hissy fits will entertain for hours.
  • My Goodnight Giveaway is still open,  don’t forget to get your entry in!
  • And you know how I told you I was feeling old last week? Yeah, The Never Ending Story is 30 years old. So, I’m feeling older than ever…Faaaaalllcooooor!!!
  • Sundays are the day for roasts and Mr Ask is making Biksemad.

Wishing you a fabulously relaxing Sunday xxxx
