Waffles with Blueberry Syrup

Nathan is a BIG eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, etc kind of breakfast guy. He indulges me and eats (and enjoys!) muffins, scones, cinnamon rolls, and pancakes. But, he is definately more of a savory breakfast person.

With one exception... Waffles with blueberry syrup! This waffle recipe came from my mother-in-law and these are the waffles Nathan grew up eating. I like to jazz them up with homemade blueberry syrup. The combination is out of this world! I really look forward to this breakfast!

Makes 5 waffles

1 1/2 cups sifted flour

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking powder

1 TBSP sugar

2 egg whites, beaten until they cling to the bowl

2 egg yolks, well beaten

1 1/4 cups milk

1/4 cup melted butter

Sift dry ingredients together several times. Beat yolks and combine them with milk. Gradually stir the liquid into the dry ingredients and beat only until smooth. Add melted butter and then fold in the egg whites.

Pour a heaping half cup of batter into the center of waffle iron. Bake until golden and crisp.

Blueberry Syrup

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

1 TBSP lemon juice

Combine blueberries, sugar, and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.

We love waffles here too but can you believe I am too lazy to drag the waffle iron out so I just go with pancakes most of the time? lol. Your waffles and blueberry syrup might make me get off my duff and make some for Grumpy this weekend. ;o)

The waffles look good but I'm afraid I'm a pancake girl. Love 'em small, with lots of butter and crispy edges! Just thought of something, it could be because I've never eaten a homemade waffle! Just Eggos!

Hey, btw, isn't it sweet their sayings? I need to write 'em down so that I can remember all the sweet and funny things they've said. Also, for when they hit those teen years and they aren't so sweet and funny. :-)
