Savory Veggie Waffles

Coming up with breakfast ideas is one of the most difficult in my house.  It takes me some time to wake up from my 6:30 am wake up call, aka my toddler smiling at my face and saying mommy mommy mommy? Most days I’m dragging my feet to the kitchen trying to scramble and fix something to eat. I actually came up with this at night! I’ve been trying to think ahead or make things the night before in preparation for the back to school rush.   These savory veggie waffles are so tasty.  It brings a different dynamic to the traditional waffle.

I always try to add veggies to a recipe and I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful these turned out.   I was actually going to make these as patties, but  I didn’t want to wake up the kiddos one late evening with noise in the kitchen. I made these in my office with a waffle maker instead of a pan and it turned out wonderful!

This recipe is packed with fiber from cauliflower , protein from the milk, eggs, and cheese and more vitamins from the sweet potato. You can easily find riced veggies in your frozen aisle at most grocery stores. I’ve also made these with just riced cauliflower and it tastes great too! The sweet potato however, adds a bit of sweetness to it that makes it so delicious.
