*You want your mashed kabocha squash to be the consistency of pumpkin puree. If it is too heavy you can blend it to make it smoother. You can also just sub pumpkin. If your kabocha isn't at this consistency the waffles will easily fall apart.
**Letting your batter sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken is a critical step. Do NOT skip this.
Note: these waffles come out dense and fluffy like a belgian waffle as opposed to a crispy waffle such as Eggo. If you would like the waffles more crispy you can put them on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 425 degrees F for about 20 minutes. These also freeze very well. To reheat follow the instructions above on how to make them crispy.
*We used a mini waffle maker for this recipe, but you can easily use a regular sized one. You will just have fewer waffles.
