Make the potato "waffle"
Place the grated potato in a cheesecloth or a couple of paper towels. Close the paper towel or cheesecloth over the potato, then squeeze to remove as much liquid as possible.
In a medium bowl, combine the grated potato, spinach dip mix, and smoked spice. Mix to combine. Taste and adjust the flavors as needed.
Add the olive oil and stir until the grated potato is well coated. With a large spoon gather the grated potato in a rough
circle and place in your waffle maker and cook until evenly browned and crisped. This may take a few tries. As your potato waffle cooks, poach the egg.
