Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day! Start the day off right with golden brown homemade waffles served with a low sugar blueberry sauce! Satisfying and filling!

Breakfast time is my husband’s favorite meal of the day. There is such a wide variety of choices to choose from. Biscuits, pancakes, oatmeal, muffins, fruit, cereal, sandwiches, hash browns, yogurt, toast — the list is never ending. He often pairs his meal with a protein like farm fresh eggs, either scrambled or cooked over easy. But on special occasions, he will get some crispy bacon or a sausage link. Now, we can all be in agreement, bacon is appropriate for any meal, at any time. You can never have too much bacon!

During the week, his breakfast is pretty simple due to his busy schedule. A bowl full of cereal or some breakfast dish frozen from leftovers baked up a week or two ago. We rarely see each other since duty calls him away at 5 AM and I prefer to arise when the sun shines.

I’m not always a morning person.

But on the weekends, things are a little different. We have more time to make a homemade breakfast meal with all the fixings. While Matt, my husband, loves pancakes, I think he prefers a good waffle now and then. Somehow waffles just seem a little bit fancier.

My go-to waffle recipe includes eggs, flour, lots of butter, milk, baking powder, a dash of salt and of course a splash of creamy vanilla. These easy waffles are great topped with butter and jelly or a bit of maple syrup. But if you want to take it up a notch, try them with this blueberry sauce! Lightly sweet and fruity, this sauce pairs well with the golden, crips waffles. During the peak of blueberry season, this recipe is a great way to use up excess blueberries. Or if you’re in the middle of winter, like I am currently, you can use frozen blueberries. Your waffles with blueberry sauce will be delicious either way!

Be sure to serve these homemade waffles with some eggs. And don’t forget that bacon!

Homemade Waffle Recipe

Golden brown and crisp, this classic waffle recipe paired with homemade blueberry sauce is a perfect, healthy way to feed your family or a hungry breakfast crowd!

Makes: about 20 4-inch waffles

Ingredients

Waffles
3 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup butter (1.5 sticks), melted
2 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbs baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Blueberry Sauce
1/4 cup sweetener of your choice (sugar, fructose, agave, honey)
1 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
3/4 cup water
3 cups frozen or fresh blueberries

Instructions

To make the waffles, start by heating up your waffle iron. Next, add the eggs into a large bowl. Using a whisk, beat the eggs until fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.

Using a measuring cup, pour the batter into a waffle maker and cook according to the manufacturers instructions. (We know the waffles are done on our vintage waffle maker when the steam stops, about 4-5 minutes.)

Remove waffles from iron. Place on a wire rack while you finish making the rest of the waffles.

While the waffles are cooking, it’s time to get started on your blueberry sauce. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and cornstarch. Slowly add in the water and whisk until smooth. Turn the stovetop heat to medium. Add the blueberries. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Cook and stir until the sauce becomes thickened. Remove from heat.

To serve, place a couple of waffles on a plate. Add butter, if desired. Pour a few spoonfuls of blueberry sauce over the top of the waffles.

Yield: about 20 4-inch waffles
