  • Otzi, does one have to rinse the shredded potatoes before putting them in the waffle maker?

    And how thick do you lay 'em on there? Enough to still see the waffle maker's surface, or
    opaque?

    AND, is would the waffle maker be correct in telling us when the potatoes are done by the
    light shutting off, like it does for waffles, or do we have to wait lonnnnnger?

    I will try it right this very instant, as my 200g of sweet potatoes from 1pm is wearing off......

    • I wish a cheese feast would work. I keep meaning to do at least 72 hours of potato feast, but my corner store, which carries an eclectic and unreliable inventory, has recently stocked this freakin' decadant brie cheese laced with walnuts. I'm so weak. Maybe I'll start on Monday with you all (corner store should be out by then).

        It's less messy if you rinse them with hot water and drain well. I put a great big handful on there, so many that it won't close all the way. As they cook, it kind of mashes them down, it takes a time or two to get it right. Same for telling when they are done, when the red light goes out is a pretty good time to start checking them. If you get it right, they are brown and crispy and fall right out, if it's too soon they stick and are hard to get out.

          I'm a cheese head, too. What I've started doing is buying a big hunk of really expensive cheese once a week and eating it all in one day. I have a piece of 1000 Day Aged Gouda in the fridge for this weekend. Otherwise, I could eat cheese every day.

          OK, back to tater talk!

              Vinegar and salt really make them special!

              • the vinegar thing scares me - all i have is regular ol' white vinegar. . . if that makes any difference

                and do you dip the toasted mass into the vinegar, or do you sprinkle it on there before or during
                cooking?

                  Sprinkle on after they are done. Then put salt on, it sticks to the vinegar. MMMMM

                      And you almost sold your waffle maker at your garage sale last summer for 50 cents....

                      • I have most every appliance known to man... except a waffle maker. But DD got one for Christmas from her SO, but I am guessing she will leave it there. I bet my sister can find me one at a garage sale. And since she really does own every appliance known to man, I bet she has one she is not using
                        65lbs gone and counting!!

                          Lies! All lies!

                          My family is not primal, just me, so I make them whatever their little hearts' desire...... even waffles...... OH NOES!!!

                          • I easily eat 2.5-3 pounds per day, plus steamed/raw veggies. Absolutely stuffed. But I did heavy deadlifts and squats today so I probably need to eat more.

                            Also, can too much potassium dehydrate like too much sodium? I've consumed ~10,000mg of potassium today, and I'm awfully parched.

                            • Dang, I gave my son my waffle iron last time he was in town.

                              I'm on day 2. I get outrageously hungry after Yukon Gold taters but do fine on sweet potatoes. I was at Trader Joes eyeing the rice today but realized if I had a serving of rice on day 2, it would lead to other things. So I have a tray of sweet potatoes in the oven and roasted yukon's ready for the next couple days.

                              I don't know if I'll still be doing this on Monday when some of you start, depends how I'm feeling and what the scale is doing.

                              Having been a tater eating McDougalite for 9 years, I could happily munch taters all day!

Since I'm out of meat it's the perfect time to begin. I just bought $20 worth of assorted potatoes, red/yellow/purple and a few sweets. Cool there are other people who'll be doing it around the same time.
                                Me, too! Eating the last of my leftovers and then going to buy potatoes. I have to start tonorrow to give me a whole week before my work Christmas party. After that I have a couple of other things planned through the holidays that would get in the way so tomorrow it us. You and me fateater! I'm kind of scared!

                                Someone remind me... 1-2 lbs per day on average? And black coffee okay? Can't believe I'll have to give up my cream! Okay, I know it's only 7 days!
