Sweet Potato Waffles

For breakfast this morning, I decided to make waffles using the leftover sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving dinner. There was about 1/2 cup, and I stirred it into a half-batch of my favorite waffle recipes. For added flavor, I also stirred in a 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. If you don’t have leftover sweet potatoes, pumpkin purée would be a terrific substitute. Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Waffles
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
3/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup leftover Senator Russell’s sweet potatoes

1. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine butter and next 4 ingredients. Gradually stir butter mixture into dry ingredients just until combined.
2. Cook in a lightly greased waffle-maker until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot with warm maple syrup.
