Sun Honey Waffles

These waffles are delicious!  They are yet another recipe from one of my new cokbooks, the Land O Lakes Treasury of Country Heritage Meals & Menus.  The hint of lemon was lovely, and there was a nice richness from the three eggs.  These waffles are a tad bit fancier and more involved than your standard waffle and would be great to have for Sunday morning breakfast.  Or you can do like I did and make them ahead of time on the weekend, then just pop them in the toaster oven to crisp up for an easy weeknight breakfast for dinner meal.

The fresh fruit piled on top is a must!  The flavor of these waffles just goes so well with fruit.  The first night we had them, I drizzled some of my homemade syrup on top, and then I discovered with the leftovers that they’re equally delicious with a generous dollop of vanilla yogurt instead (and healthier!).  However you choose to eat these, I think you’ll really enjoy them 🙂
