Anything can be waffled.
Take out the tots. Let them hang out. They need to be soft.
Maybe let them hang out in a skillet on lowish heat.
Plug in the waffle iron.
When the taters are not really cooking, but not too stiff (heh, heh) throw them in the waffle iron. I put like 23-26. Leave it on low to medium.
Let them hang out for a while. Like 10 minutes or something. Then turn the heat to the highest for like 3-5 more minutes.
I thought about putting them in the toaster to reheat.
