This week I’ve been exploring meyer lemon waffles, starting with meyer lemon chicken picatta, followed by meyer lemon pull apart bread, and now…meyer lemon buttermilk waffles! When you have meyer lemons, dessert is an easy guarantee, but breakfast? Now that’s something to add to the agenda! Whenever I eat at an American breakfast restaurant, if waffles are on the menu, I’ll order them. There’s just something about a crisp, fluffy waffle topped with melted butter and drizzled with maple syrup. You can never go wrong with the basic buttermilk waffles, but add a little meyer lemon and elevate them to the next level. Meyer lemon buttermilk waffles here I come!

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

Breakfast is probably the easiest meal of the day to prepare, and rightly so. Pancakes, french toast, eggs can all be prepared in a matter of minutes. These waffles are no different. 

I stuck to the recipe just making one minor change. I didn’t have buttermilk on hand, and although I realize that is an important ingredient in the recipe, my urgency to eat these waffles prevented me from going out and buying the buttermilk. As a substitute, I added 1 tbsp meyer lemon juice in the 1 1/4 cup milk and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes. You can use this substitution for other recipes that call for buttermilk. 

Cook the waffles according to your specific waffle maker. I found for my waffle maker that a little over 1/2 cup batter was the perfect amount to make one crispy waffle. 

Dust a little powdered sugar and enjoy with butter and syrup! These meyer lemon waffles are a little tangy with a subtle flavor of orange and lemon. Paired with sweet syrup and they are perfection! If you’re planning on making a large batch, freeze the remaining and pop in the toaster when ready to indulge. Another waffle to add to the favorites list!
