Sweet Potato Hash Brown Waffles Recipe

Here's a little secret: Waffles don't always have to be sweet. Sure, banana and blueberry are great, but the flavor we're really into? Sweet potato. Here, we've shredded the spuds into hash browns, then folded them into a cayenne-laced batter. The result is a crispy, pillowy waffle just begging to be topped with a runny fried egg, avocado, and a squeeze of lime.

Sweet Potato Hash Brown Waffles

Yield: 2 servings
Active Time:

Ingredients

For the waffles:
1 1/2 cups peeled and grated sweet potatoes
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Large pinch sea salt
2 large eggs, beaten

For the toppings:
1 tablespoon cooking oil of choice
2 large eggs
1 avocado, cubed
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
Maldon salt, to taste
2 limes

Special equipment: waffle iron

Instructions

Make the waffles
Preheat waffle iron to medium heat.

In a large bowl, mix together all waffle ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Spray waffle iron with nonstick spray. Scrape batter into center of iron and spread outwards. Close iron and cook about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and repeat with remaining batter.

Prepare the toppings
While waffles are cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add oil and cook eggs sunny side up. Top waffles with eggs, avocado, cilantro, salt, and a squeeze or two of lime to serve.

Tip of the Week: This Common Spice Is Your Secret Weapon Against Ants

  • Amanda Egdorf-Sand

    I was really excited about this recipe because I don't do sweet stuff for breakfast. Needless to say, this was a fail for me. The mixture was very dry and did not make for a good waffle. Mine didn't even look remotely close to what I saw in the video. Oh well.

  • Jamie Greenwood

    I have to agree with Amanda. I would cut waaay back on the coconut flour. 2 Tbsp is just way too much, making the pancake dry and actually way to coconut-y for something that is supposed to be savory. I plan to try this again but tweak the recipe quite a bit.
