Sweet Potato Waffles


Sometimes we like to have breakfast for supper over here at the Cottage. Tonight was one of those nights. I had some ham in the refrigerator so I decided to do Sweet Potato Waffles to have with it. Kind of a different take on ham and sweet potatoes. Anyway, here's a photo and the recipe. Maybe you'd like to try them at your house too!

1 cup flour (1/4 cup of it can be whole wheat, if desired)
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup mashed or pureed sweet potatoes (canned pumpkin can be substituted, if desired)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons molasses
1 egg, beaten

In a small bowl, sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ginger. In a large bowl, whisk together sweet potatoes, milk, olive oil, molasses and beaten egg. Add the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Thin with a little additional milk, if needed. Preheat waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions. Makes approximately six waffles.

They do look good. Does your recipe give the number of carbs per serving?

Rosemary, I adapted this recipe somewhat from one in The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook. The original used soy milk and just the egg white. Otherwise, it is the same and they say that one serving has 48 g of carbs. Hope that helps!

Thanks, Dorothy. My husband is diabetic so we really have to be careful about our carbs. I'd have to change something about these to get them within our limits.
