These waffles are spectacular, Sharon. The sweet potato flavor is subtle, but discernable. I hope you don't mind, but I made some hot brown sugar,buttered pecan sauce for the topping, which made these taste like sweet potato pie or my favorite thanksgiving sweet potato casserole. I think I'll always be baking some extra potatoes with just this recipe in mind. Good job Sharon!
