Savory Mashed Potato "Waffles"
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup bleached all purpose flour
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
2 large scallions, thinly sliced, divided
1/3 cup OLIVE & VINE Rich Roasted Garlic or Wild Rosemary infused olive oil
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons salt (less for pre-seasoned mashed potatoes)
freshly ground pepper, to taste
Sour cream, for serving, optional

Heat the waffle maker. Meanwhile, add all the ingredients to a large bowl, including 1/2 of the scallions, and whisk thoroughly.
