How to make it

  • Cook the bacon in a heavy skillet until crisp.
  • Transfer bacon to absorbent paper and let cool; set aside.
  • Pour off the bacon fat, return the skillet to medium heat and add pecans.
  • Toast, shaking the pan, until the pecans are evenly browned.
  • Transfer to a small bowl.
  • Prepare and heat a waffle iron.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
  • Break the eggs, one at a time, into a medium bowl and beat vigorously with a whisk until smooth.
  • Fold in the mashed sweet potatoes, the milk and the butter.
  • Set aside.
  • Put the flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and the pepper, if using, into a small bowl and stir with a fork.
  • Add the flour mixture to the yam mixture quickly and stir briefly, just enough to moisten the flour. Do not overmix.
  • Cook the waffles according to the waffle iron instructions until lightly browned but not too crisp.
  • Transfer the cooked waffles to a plate and keep warm in the oven as you cook the remaining waffles.
  • To serve, put one or two waffles on individual plates and drizzle with maple syrup. Scatter toasted pecans and crumbled bacon on top and serve immediately.
