Sweet Potato Pancakes

Ingredients

Makes: 6 waffles   Serving Size: 2 waffles

Directions

  1. Grate the sweet potatoes, peel and all.
  2. Combine grated sweet potatoes and eggs in a large bowl.
  3. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  4. Turn waffle maker or panini press to medium-high heat, allow a few minutes for it to come up to temperature.
  5. Spray olive oil on both plates of waffle maker/panini press.
  6. Spoon sweet potato mixture on the waffle maker/panini press (about 3 inches wide and piled up about 1 inch), close the lid and wait about 7-9 minutes or until the waffles are browned.
  7. Remove the waffles from the appliance and let cool on a cooling rack or eat right away.

Notes

When I first tested this recipe, I used two eggs with two sweet potatoes, but I found that the waffles were falling apart while they cooked. So, I added the third egg to bind the grated sweet potatoes better. That seemed to do the trick!

Theses will keep for about 1 week in the fridge, covered.
