Sweet Potato Grilled Cheese Waffle

We got a little inventive here – We wanted a unique waffle and to mash it up with a grilled cheese!  Seriously delicious, you’ll have a new favorite breakfast go-to.  Sweet Potato Grilled Cheese Waffles will be yummy in anyone’s book!


3 cups shredded sweet potato
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup waffle mix
1/8 cup onion, diced
1 egg
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp cinnamon
4 slices cheddar cheese
2 long pieces maple bacon (cut in half to make 4)
Any desired toppings (whipped cream, maple or fruit syrup, ginger pieces, chocolate chips, etc)


To begin, plug in the waffle iron to start heating. In medium mixing bowl, mix waffle mix, water, oil, onion, cinnamon, sour cream and mix well until smooth. In a medium saucepan, heat to medium and add shredded sweet potatoes to soften them. (Approximately 4 minutes) Then, add to waffle mixture. Add 1/2 to coat bottom of the waffle iron. Place 2 cheese slices in the center with cooked bacon pieces on top, then add 2 remaining cheese. Add the rest of the waffle mixture, covering cheese. Close waffle iron and cook until golden brown, approximately 7 minutes. Remove carefully after you can see it is golden. Cover with desired toppings or eat plain! Enjoy!
