Eat Local Challenge Week 3: Leek Waffles With Maple Sausage & Eggs

It’s week 3 of the Eat Local Challenge and I have fully committed myself to eating only local, except for that one time I went through the Burger King drive-through for ice cream, don’t judge me!  This week I went a little crazy at farmer’s market and on produce highway and have been making a ton of delicious farm fresh food. The Eat Local Challenge has given me so many new foods to try and inspired me to get back into my kitchen and have fun. These weekly recipes are definitely going in my recipe book.

I love waffles and have been trying new recipes using my waffle iron thanks to Pinterest. Sweet potato hash browns? Yes! This week’s recipe uses onions, garlic, Kodiak Waffle mix, maple sausage and milk from the Eat Local Challenge box!

Take a look at all the yummy details on the Eat Local Challenge site Family Practice Blog!
