I was cruising the primal sites and the thought piqued my interest. A sweet potato waffle. Served with barbecue and hoison sauce. Unfortunately, they were only previewing pictures from the new book and hadn’t shared recipes yet.
Hen House had sweet potato’s on sale, so I tried my own version.
Ingredients. Medium size sweet potato, 2 eggs, cheese, garlic powder, dried onions
Step 1- dust off the old waffle maker. Geez. It’s been years since that poor old boy was taken off the shelf.
Step 2 – peel & shred 1 medium size sweet potato. I used my Cuisinart to easily shred the tuber.
Step 3 – put 1/2 the shredded sweet potato in a bowl.
Step 4 – add 1 egg to each 1/2 of the mixture. Add approximately 1/3 cup cheese, then garlic powder & dried onion to taste. Mix with your hands. EEEWWWWWW Use a glove if you don’t like your hands getting icky.
Step 5 – Heat the waffle iron, and when heated – lightly grease the iron. Smooosh 1/2 of the mixture onto the iron, close and set the timer.
I cooked the 1st waffle at 2 minutes each side. But after eating the goods, I think 2.5 minutes each side would be better. I also used our old deep Belgium waffle maker. I think the less deep waffle irons may be easier to make a more crisp waffle. I might also use more cheese next time too.
