Crisp buttery waffles filled with blueberries are a breakfast treat that will have you coming back for just one more bite until they are gone. Sometimes I snack on a plain blueberry waffle, occasionally we drizzle them with maple syrup, but most often in our home Blueberry Waffles are topped with my grandmother’s waffle sauce.
Blueberry Waffles with Waffle Sauce have become one of the breakfasts that I crave the most often. We’ve been pouring my grandmother’s waffle sauce over blueberry pancakes for years, but I never thought to try making blueberry waffles until a couple months ago.
Oh my goodness, Blueberry Waffles are amazing. Bursting blueberries along with all those crispy waffle pockets to hold that sweet vanilla sauce? Yes, please! I’ve made these waffles so many times now, they have a place reserved now in my freezer alongside the Ham and Cheese Waffles that we all love so much.

HOW TO MAKE BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
Blueberry waffles require a little extra effort to make sure they turn out perfectly and don’t trash your waffle iron. As some of the berries will burst while cooking, the potential for a sticky waffle iron is there. I recommend greasing the waffle iron generously with butter between each waffle or spraying with cooking spray.
Also, and this is important, clean the waffle iron right after breakfast. Don’t let it sit and grow too cold before cleaning. The first time I made these, I accidentally closed the waffle iron and forgot to clean it that day. It was a mess when I went back to it. (I’ve learned since to leave it open until it’s clean!)
The following times when I made blueberry waffles, I used a damp rag to wipe it clean while it was still slightly warm. If anything sticks to it, a chopstick wrapped inside that damp rag provides enough pressure to remove any stuck on berries.
Crisp, fluffy waffles filled with sweet blueberries are the best way to start the day!
