Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food and good company! We had a wonderful day with lots of delicious food and family time at Walter’s Aunt and Uncle’s house 🙂
Guess what!? Thanksgiving is continuing in our house today, I’ve got a turkey in the oven right now! Since we don’t host Thanksgiving, for the past few years we have made a tradition of cooking a turkey and a smaller thanksgiving dinner the day after so we can have a week full of Thanksgiving leftovers 🙂 The trick here is to buy the turkey after Thanksgiving when it is on sale! We headed out to the grocery store this morning and snatched up one of the last fresh turkeys at a huge discount! We got a 15 pound turkey (the smallest they had left) for $11! Such a steal!
Thanksgiving leftovers are the best, I like them more than the dinner itself. It doesn’t get much better than a loaded turkey sandwich smothered in homemade cranberry sauce! But, in case you are in the mood to try something a little different, I’m sharing this easy Savory Sweet Potato Waffle recipe with you!
Smash the sweet potatoes, mix in 2 eggs.
Add heavy cream, whole wheat flour, baking soda, sea salt, pepper and rosemary, mix. Fold in sharp cheddar cheese.
Spoon into a greased waffle maker and cook for 5-7 minutes until full cooked and golden brown.
These waffles really work for any time of day and the toppings are up to you! You can go the sweet/savory route and top with syrup, butter, etc… the more traditional waffle toppings, or you can get wild with savory toppings like green onion, avocado, a fried egg, bacon, even turkey! The sky’s the limit!
I decided to try some of both. I did 2 with pomegranate seeds, greek yogurt and syrup and 2 with avocado, green onion and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
