Prep your waffle maker by preheating it to medium to high. Coat both sides with cooking spray or melted butter—the spray will be quicker, but the butter will give it some extra taste.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.
Stir in the shredded potatoes, cheese, chives, salt, and pepper, along with any other ingredients you choose to add. Mix thoroughly.
Scoop about 1 cup of the mixture onto the waffle maker, and spread it evenly to the edges. Sprinkle with your toppings, we are using: olives, green peppers, and ham.
Close the waffle maker and cook the mixture for about five minutes. Check once or twice to make sure there is no burning. Cook until the entire waffle is golden brown in color.
Gently remove the waffle with a fork or tongs.
Serve with sour cream or ketchup, and enjoy!
