Savory Hashbrown Waffles w/ Chipotle Lime Sauce

Savory spices, Chipotle Lime Sauce, and a fried egg liven up this breakfast feast! To make this meal nightshade free, use sweet potatoes and replace the Chipotle Lime Sauce with some crumbled dairy or non-dairy cheese. I eat fat with breakfast, so I love to garnish this with avocado.

Recipe From: Katie’s Bright Kitchen



  • 1 cup grated raw sweet potato, packed 8 oz


  • 1 egg for batter
  • 2 fried or poached eggs for topping

Chipotle Lime Sauce

  • 1/2 cup tahini 4 oz
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper canned in adobo sauce
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp water or non-dairy milk to thin


  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Green onions, chives, or fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Avocado optional


Make the Waffles

  • Grate the sweet potato. I don't bother to peel them. If using regular potatoes, rinse in cold water and squeeze out excess water.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the egg and stir in the grated potato and seasonings.
  • Spray a waffle iron with cooking spray. Scoop half of the hashbrown batter into the center and spread it out to the edges.
  • Be patient! Avoid opening the waffle iron too early or it will stick. Cook until browned, between 10-15 minutes. Make a second waffle.

Make the Sauce

  • Meanwhile, make the Chipotle Lime Sauce by blending all ingredients in a small blender cup, or in a small jar with an immersion blender. Add water or milk to reach desired consistency.

Fry the Eggs

  • Heat a dab of oil on a nonstick skillet over medium low heat. Carefully crack the egg onto the pan – it should sizzle. Add a dash of salt and pepper. For sunny side up, cover with a lid for a minute or two until the yolk is cooked to your liking. For over easy, cook uncovered and flip after a minute or two and cook until the yolk is cooked to your liking.

Assemble the Bowls

  • Prepare any additional toppings, and top the waffles with all the goodies!


Notes for Bright Line Eaters
  • One waffle contains about 4 oz of potato and 1/2 an egg (1/4 of a BLE protein serving) so if you top it with a fried egg you’ll still be 1/4 protein short. Complete it with 2 Tbsp of Chipotle Lime Sauce (1/4 protein) or 1/2 oz of cheese.
  • In maintenance, I often swap out half of my second breakfast protein for a fat serving, (because I love avocado in my savory breakfasts!) Or, I sometimes count avocado as a fruit, which is totally rogue, but I love it. To better comply with a BLE food plan, you could leave out the avocado and eat some fruit on the side.
