Raise your hand if you love Thanksgiving for the leftovers. If you raised your hand, we are on the same wave length. While I enjoy the main event, it’s the leftovers that get me. We’re not talking turkey sandwiches though. Nope, today it’s all about these Sweet Potato Waffles with Blueberry Orange Infused Syrup. I know. It’s a mouthful.
Day after Thanksgiving brunch is a thing and I am so happy about it. I mean you need a little time between the meal the day before and breakfast so brunching just makes sense. Your brunch guests will be wowed when they realize that yesterday’s sweet potatoes became today’s gorgeous waffles. While I added pumpkin pie spice to the batter, if your sweet potatoes are already seasoned with cinnamon and spices you can leave that out. It really just depends on what you have left over.
I garnish these with toasted pecans. This is not necessary, but if you made pecan pie and you have leftover pecans; its a real treat. Texture is everything after all. I enjoy a little crunch when eating something soft like a waffle. You may also garnish with whipped cream or vanilla Greek yogurt. The choice is yours.
I know this recipe is a bit more involved than my recipes usually are, but trust me its worth it. If ever there was a time to put on some music and take your time with a recipe, its the holiday season right? I really hope you make these Sweet Potato Waffles with Blueberry Orange Infused Syrup. I think you’ll be impressed with what you can do and I know your guests will surely go back for seconds 😉 We did.
