Blueberry muffin waffles

Breakfast for dinner was the request for tonight, and I want to start working my way through my stockpile of frozen blueberries.    This recipe looked fantastic, so I preheated my Presto Flip Side Belgian Waffle maker while I mixed up the batter.    The first thing that should have tipped me off what a disaster was coming was the thickness of the batter.   I don't know if my flour has settled or maybe my egg was undersized, but it was thick.    Also, due to the mechanics of my iron, it's very hard to brush both sides with butter, because it doesn't open flat.   I buttered one side, and sprayed the other with cooking spray, and hoped for the best.  

The result?  The waffles stuck like mad.   The first one out came out in pieces, delicious, blueberry flavored pieces.   My son didn't care, saved him the trouble of cutting it up.   :)   For the second waffle, I tried to get more butter into the grooves of the iron, and I got about half of mine out in one piece.      He had his with a little vanilla ice cream, and I had mine the traditional way with butter and syrup.     I don't think I'd make them again with my current iron, but with a different brand I'm sure they'd be just fine.    Thanks so much to Deborah at Taste and Tell for the recipe!
