Sweet Potato Waffle with Spiced Curd Cheese and Poached Egg

3040 Min

Our Spice up my Potato shakers are not just suited for baked dishes, as proven by these sweet potato waffles! Sweet potatoes cook quickly and the batter for your waffles can be prepared in no time at all. If poaching an egg is too risky for you, here is a useful hack: for each egg, place a large piece of handkerchief sized plastic wrap over a small cup. Then grease with a little neutral oil before carefully cracking the egg into the wrap. Tie a knot at the top of the wrap and cook in gently simmering water.
