Love this recipe!!! We have beautiful - and overly bountiful - apple trees on our property and I peeled and cored, then chopped small and added on top of the waffles for an added zing. These waffles are also great served savory...I used this waffle recipe to serve chicken and waffles when my son and his friends came back home from college...BIG success!!

I can't wait to make them. Looks like a fall favorite. The canned pumpkin is a great idea too!

Canned sweet potatoes and bisquick? No thank you.

I would just microwave a sweet potato and then use 1 cup in place of the canned kind.

Does anyone have a "from scratch" recipe for these using fresh sweet potatoes?
