This time of year summer farmers markets are filled with all the amazing produce of the season. Nectarines, blueberries and other fresh pick fruits fill little blue containers begging you to bring them home! My Blueberry waffle with Fresh Nectarines recipe is the perfect summer brunch recipe to celebrate the summer season.
You have just returned from your local summer farmers market, your recycled burlap bags are filled with heirloom tomatoes, bunches of gloriously fragrant herbs, cute blue pints overflowing with fresh picked blueberries and a baker’s dozen of nectarines ripe and ready for eating. You pile them all in bowls on the kitchen island and step back thinking – they make a glorious seasonal display for sure!
And then it hits you…. the reality that you need recipes fast. Recipes that allow you to utilize these farmers markets finds to their fullest, to showcase summers abundance in all it’s glory! To that may I suggest a Blueberry Waffle Recipe topped with fresh nectarines.
A few years ago I bought my husband a waffle maker for Christmas and I am constantly creating new recipes to use it – you may have noticed in my book An Appealing Plan I have even branched out into savory waffles which are amazing – and what better than to mix in fresh blueberries to a standby Belgian waffle recipe, add a bit of lemon zest to bright it up and viola, a blueberry waffle recipe perfect for weekend brunch but also easy enough for a quick weekday breakfast.
We happened to have a bottle of Mama’s Choice Blueberry Syrup on hand which added an amazing layer of flavor to the dish but feel free to skip this, add your own favorite syrup or simply sprinkle a dusting of powder sugar on top.
