Sour Cream Waffles with fresh blueberries are perfect for long leisurely breakfasts like the ones we’ve been having . Our family is officially on Spring Break and enjoying every minute of it.
Because this recipe involves whipping egg whites and using quite a few bowls, it’s not exactly the type of thing I’d throw together on a week day. However, you can make extra waffles, freeze them, then throw them in the toaster on fast-paced mornings.
I hope you like these. For crispier waffles, use oil instead of butter or keep the butter and just cook the waffles a little longer. I have a Cuisinart single waffle maker and I think I cooked mine on a “5” or “6” to get it crisp. This recipe is also very easy to halve.
