Norwegian Potato Waffles / Potetvafler

Left over potatoes turn into delicious waffles with this recipe. The first waffle iron was probably developed in the Netherlands and Germany in the 1300s. Cakes fried in irons were among the first cakes made in Norway, besides cakes fried on flatt stones and griddles. The waffle irons had long handles to make the user able to keep the iron in the fire.

This recipe is from the book “From oldemor’s kitchen” (From Great Grandma’s Kitchen), published by Østfold Associated Country Women in 1998.
