I like to garnish these great waffles with sour cream and chives, or even a simple cheese sauce. My mother used to sprinkle them with a touch of sugar. —Laura Fall-Sutton, Buhl, Idaho

"Responding to bziol:

Mashed sweet potatoes should work fine. You will have a sweeter waffle, since you added brown sugar when you mashed."

"Absolutely delicious but I didn't add the onion. I sometimes make mashed potatoes and freeze them anyway, now I portion out a couple of baggies of taters to just pull out for waffles. Waffles freeze very well also"

"I wonder how these would taste with mashed sweet potatoes. I used butter and brown sugar when I mashed the sweets so it could give some good flavor in combination with the bacon."

"We loved the consistency of these waffles - soft on the inside and crispy on the out. The only thing I'd do different is add about two more strips of bacon to it. Great, hearty breakfast!"
