The Best Instant Belgian Waffles with Blueberry Sauce


My husband came home the other day from Costco with a Waring Pro Belgian Waffle Maker that was on clearance - $39.97.  I always thought that it would be nice to have a waffle maker but always resisted spending the money.   I am very happy with his bargain purchase!

Traditional Belgian waffle recipes are yeast based and require a lot of prep time.  I am not so good at planning ahead and never have a lot of extra time so I went with an "instant" recipe.  The waffles were crisp on the outside and light in the middle.  As good as any Belgian waffle I have had out.  These were super easy and fantastic. 

I served them with a quick blueberry sauce and real maple syrup.  I love Sunday mornings!
