pumpkin waffles

When autumn rears it’s head, I like to be prepared. A warm sweater and a scarf for the evenings is usually necessary and I try to carry my red & white polka-dot umbrella where ever I go, just in case. This is also a season for treking out to a pumpkin patch, carving jack-o-lanterns and eating hearty, warm meals. What’s not to love? Yesterday I had some left over canned pumpkin and decided that this morning I would make some pumpkin waffles for breakfast. Sure, it’s decadent eating homemade waffles on a Tuesday morning, but Cornelius has the day off and I work from home, so I couldn’t really see a problem! Perhaps if it were the weekend, I’d substitute the vegetable oil in the recipe for melted butter. Guilding the lily just seems to work better on a lazy Sunday morning.

    dawna, i think yams would be okay except that you would have to add more liquid to the mix. yams seem to be stiffer than pumpkin, but otherwise i think it should be okay!

    Those look outstanding! I wonder if I could use mashed yam (well, orange sweet-potato) instead of pumpkin? It works pretty well in things like muffins, so I may give it a try. I like pumpkin, but yam is something I usually have around anyway (and it’s so cheap).

    P.S. Very jealous of your work-from-home gig.

    they’re pretty good waffles, molly! i’m also very appreciative of my working from home gig too, since the past 2 weeks i’ve been working out at a very corporate office downtown. the job ends this tuesday so maybe i’ll make pumpkin waffles as a mid-week treat!
