Reviews for Spicy Hash Brown Waffles with Fried Eggs
"While we liked the taste, the dish certainly wasn't as pretty as shown. I oiled both waffle plates well but they still stuck a little. The end result was in pieces not whole squares."
"These are so great! I love finding another purpose for my waffle iron! These are a HUGE hit with my boys. The waffle iron gives you amazing crispiness, which is so hard to do at home with frozen hash browns. We like to make these into sandwiches with the hash browns as the bread. YUM!"
"This was sooo good! I never made a waffle-type dish with hash browns before, and it was a bit different, but I made it for a midday recipe, and when dinner came, all we wanted were salads."
