Sweet Potato Casserole Waffles

Sweet potato note: For the sweet potato puree, roast one large sweet potato in its skin in a 350°F oven. Allow to cool. Cut and remove flesh. Stir with a fork until smooth. Pumpkin alternative: If you don't want to roast sweet potatoes, replace the one cup of sweet potato puree with one cup of canned pumpkin filling.
