You’ve heard of chicken and waffles? Well I’ve got an even tastier idea for you just in time for Thanksgiving – leftovers using this new paleo sweet potato waffles recipe.
First off, these sweet potato waffles are the bomb…if I do say so myself. Really proud of them. Hope you like them too!
I’m not a fan of heavy, dense waffles. That’s why I’ve never EVER posted a paleo waffle recipe until now.
I like my waffles light so I can add fresh fruit or have a little something on the side and not feel overly stuffed. This sweet potato waffle fits the bill perfectly.
And you’ll be thrilled to know this is a super-simple paleo and gluten-free recipe. There’s a little extra step whipping up the egg whites and adding them to the batter, but it only takes a few minutes and it’s worth the effort…that’s what makes these waffles nice and light.
So here’s the little after-Thanksgiving bonus with these…you can use these to make an open-face “sandwich” loaded up with your T-day leftovers. Turkey, stuffing, cranberries – and what the heck, pour the leftover gravy on these too. Pile just about anything on these sweet potato waffles and dig in!
Personally, I can’t wait to serve these post-Thanksgiving to my family. I used to be big on making sliders with leftovers after T-Day, but gave them up when I went paleo. Now I’m excited about starting a new family tradition with these healthy waffles!
Just to try this idea out, we sampled the waffles with roasted turkey and a little (okay maybe a lot) pure maple syrup poured over them. Oh wow these were so good! And I can just imagine what they would be like topped with sautéed apples and cinnamon and then drizzled with maple syrup. Are you hungry yet? My mouth is watering just thinking of the possibilities!
They freeze beautifully too, so feel free to double the recipe to have these on hand for a quick morning breakfast or weekday meal!
Hope you enjoy these delicious paleo sweet potato waffles, and as always let me know what you think!
