Heat a waffle maker. Mix the ingredients for the seasoning in a small bowl to combine. In a larger bowl, mix the mash with the milk, then add the flour, bicarb, ½ tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar. Fold in the spring onions and seasoning mix.
Brush the waffle maker with a little melted butter. Spoon in half the batter and spread it out. Cook for 5 mins, or until golden and cooked through.
Lift the waffle onto a plate using a fork or spatula, and loosely cover to keep warm. Brush the waffle maker with a little more melted butter and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Top the waffles with smoked salmon or bacon rashers, if using, and a fried or poached egg, as preferred. Season and serve with dollops of soured cream or crème fraîche, if you like.
