This Wednesday, June 29th is National Waffle Iron Day. Breakfast and brunch is one of my favorite meals and I LOVE waffles topped with blueberry sauce. I thought, what better way to celebrate the beloved waffle and the kitchen tool that makes them possible, than with a delicious, easy blueberry sauce recipe. This recipe is quite versatile. Drizzle it on vanilla ice cream for a simple dessert or try it on pancakes.

Did you know waffles have been around since the 14th century? The first American patent for a waffle iron was issued in 1869. Since then, Americans have been making all kinds of delicious waffle creations.

Local blueberries and mountain huckleberries will soon be in season in Washington. You can easily swap out the blueberries for huckleberries, which are very similar.

I recommend shopping your local farmer’s market for these little blue bundles of deliciousness. Follow this link to find a Puget Sound farmer’s market near you. Find A Market Near You!

Blueberries are native to North America and very high in antioxidants

      Hi! I hope you and your dad like them. 🙂 I like them a little tart, so there’s not too much sugar. But you can adjust per your taste. Enjoy! And thank you for stopping by.

  3. I’d much rather have this yummy blueberry sauce than maple syrup! Perfect for waffles!

  4. I could just eat this with a spoon!

  5. I made a strawberry sauce just like this a couple of weekends ago. So good. I don’t know if my son would let me “waste” blueberries for cooking.

    • Michelle Barsness

      Yes, it’s pretty tough to keep enough blueberries on hand while making this. My son loves them. They’re so good for you! Thank you for stopping by. 🙂
