Cooking spray or olive oil
How To Make Sweet Potato Waffles
Peel and grate the sweet potatoes.
Use a cheesecloth and drain the excess water very, very well. Add the eggs and salt and mix them well with the fork.
Use the batter amount for your size waffle maker (see the top tips). Spray the waffle maker well with the cook spray or grease with the olive oil.
Pour the batter in the waffle maker and close. Each waffle takes about 5 minutes to cook through.
Top Tips For Making
- For a mini waffle maker, use about 1/3 cup of batter. For a full-sized waffle maker, use about 1 cup.
- Make sure to drain the sweet potatoes extremely well. Any water will make the texture of the waffles way too mushy.
- These waffles are great sweet or savory. For sweet, you can top with butter and syrup or add a dash of cinnamon to the batter. For a more savory waffle, try a dollop of sour cream.
