Because, well Waffle Wednesday! And because my husband bought a ridiculous amount of organic sweet potatoes at Costco so I'm getting creative. Add that to the fact that the twins love sweet potatoes and they don't always eat their veggies and thus these fab waffles with hidden veg were born. And the last reason of course is that our new waffle iron plates that are dishwasher friendly are way easier to clean than the Mickey Mouse waffle maker, despite Mickey's inherent cuteness. So long story long, I made these waffles out of convenience and a way to fuel us all with a healthy breakfast.
