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!

1/2 tsp salt

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.
