Sweet Potato Waffles

I’m a HUGE sweet potato fan. It is one of my favorite vegetables. I impulse bought a waffle maker earlier this week because I wanted to make some sweet potato waffles. It took me a couple of tries to get the recipe down, but now that I got the recipe down, they are so easy to make and also so versatile. You can make these waffles either savory or sweet. All you need to do is vary the seasoning you use to make them as well as the toppings. In this post, I will share the basic sweet potato waffle recipe as well as savory and sweet versions of these waffles.

Savory, Sweet Potato Waffle Breakfast Sandwich:

This savory, sweet potato waffle is seasoned with salt and pepper. I used the half of the batter to make one medium waffle. I then topped this waffle with a fried egg, sliced avocado, and hot sauce (not pictured) to make a breakfast sandwich. It tastes so satisfying and delicious.

Sweet, Sweet Potato Waffle Recipe:

This sweet, sweet potato waffle is seasoned with cinnamon and nutmeg. I cooked half the batter twice to make two medium sized sweet potato waffles. I topped the waffle with coconut cream, pecans, and maple syrup.

Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil or avocado oil to create a nonstick surface
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • Seasoning: salt and black pepper for savory flavors, cinnamon and nutmeg for sweet flavors

How to Make Sweet Potato Waffles:

1. Turn on waffle maker to warm it up.

2. Coat the waffle maker with coconut oil or avocado oil. Make sure it is evenly distributed throughout so the waffle doesn’t stick to the waffle maker.

3.  Make a small cut in each sweet potato and place in microwave for 5 minutes or until it has completely softened. Allow the sweet potatoes to cool.

4. Remove the peel from the sweet potatoes and mash the sweet potatoes into a medium sized bowl.

5. Add eggs and seasoning to the bowl and mix together.

6. Distribute the contents of the bowl evenly throughout the waffle maker. You can either make 1 large or 2 medium waffles with this batter, depending on how large/small or soft/crispy you want the waffle. For smaller, crispier waffles, split the batter in 2 and only cook 1/2 the batter in the waffle maker at a time.

7. Allow the waffle to cook for about 10 minutes, depending on the desired crispiness level. Ignore the light if the waffle maker says it is ready earlier. Cook for longer if you used the full batter for a larger waffle or if you’d like a crispier waffle.

8. Top waffle with desired toppings!
