Yes, this waffle thing is still going on here.
I am putting everything and anything in the waffle maker.
This is a phase, so please indulge me.
Here I tried my hand at sweet potato waffles.
Not hash browns, but more of a traditional waffle that puffs up and you can eat w/ maple syrup.
I shredded the sweets, like I would for potato pancakes. A bit of a challenge getting them to look nice, but they turned out delicious.
The next time I have a leftover cooked sweet potato, I will try it mashed instead of the shredding.
Either or, I loved the taste.
Sweet Potato Waffles: makes 4
1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated (or a leftover cooked sweet potato, mashed)
2 scallions (green onion), chopped
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup of milk
inch of salt & pepper
Add all ingredients to the grated sweet potatoes in a bowl.
Preheat and spray the waffle iron liberally w/ non-stick cooking spray.
Spread the batter evenly onto the waffle press and close the lid.
Cook about 7-10 minutes (these take a bit longer than the usual waffles).
They may not be perfect squares, but they taste delicious!
