Has this ever happened to you?
You are out tailgating before the big game in the crisp fall weather enjoying an Octoberfest beer or even a hot toddy. Someone hands you a plate of food. Now you suddenly have to manage a plate, beer, AND fork?!? And you can forget about playing beer pong, using your phone, or any other activity that you need your hands for.
Thats where these Sausage and Potato Cones swoop into play. You can one-hand this thing and still enjoy your beverage, play your games, and communicate like a modern adult.
First you need to make the pizzelles. You can do this part way ahead of time and just bring them to the party.
Mix all the ingredients and let the pizzelle cooker do the hard work. This recipe has about half as much sugar than normal so it doesn’t feel like a dessert.
Place on a plate with the seam down so they can cool and harden into the right shape.
Meanwhile, mix up the potatoes.
Scoop the potatoes into the cone and pop a sausage right on top. Then hand it to the nearest fan and you've got a party!
