Red, White and Blueberry Waffles

(originally made 7/3/2008)
Since it's just Jake and I for dinner, we have breakfast type stuff a lot.    I had about 1 1/2c of storebought blueberries left, so thought I would give this recipe a try.   I garnished ours up with a scoop of light cool whip, then drizzled them with some failed strawberry freezer jam (very tasty as strawberry syrup though!).    I love the hint of orange in these.  I fresh squeezed it from the orange I zested.     I have a 4 square waffle maker and mine made 8 nice waffles.    

I did mess up the recipe, but it seemed to work out ok, I misread the ingrdients as 1/2c each of the milk and oj, and it was actually 1/4c. 

My only complaint?   Lots of dishes for this one.   I hate that whole "beat the egg whites to stiff peaks" business too    LOL     But they are good, and I've got 5 leftover that can be frozen in individual ziplocs and reheated later.     :)
