Anxiously Waiting on Waffle Hashbrowns
By: Natalia Boutelle
We scrape the potatoes down to shreds and fry them in the waffle iron. The sound of butter on the potato sizzling on the waffle presser. We wait ten minutes, then we take the hashbrowns out. Who knew that a lopsided potato would turn into a brown crisp delight?
We all wait.
I get a hashbrown on my plate first. I anxiously stare and smell the ideal mouthwatering aroma of it. I patiently wait. Eventually everyone has a hashbrown on their plate. Finally we eat. I choose the ketchup to put on my hashbrown. I drizzle the ketchup all over my Waffle Hashbrown. I bite slowly into the screaming taste of salt, then the crunch of the savory potato jumps right out at me, and the ketchup ties all the flavors together,
from salty to crispy to creamy.
