Raspberry Lemon Meringue Waffles

These fluffy, light as air Raspberry Lemon Meringue Waffles are flavored with lemon yogurt and lemon zest and then studded with fresh raspberries. They’re browned to perfection and then – oh, it’s the best part! – forget the syrup!  These waffles are topped with the lightest of meringues.

With Memorial Day last weekend acting as the signal to Summer, I’ve noticed I’m making a change in what I’m preparing in the kitchen.  Gone are the heavy comfort foods.  So long to using the oven as much.  Sianara to dishes that take a long time to prepare.  I’m all about lighter dishes that are packed with flavor, minimal on prep time and that won’t heat up the house either.

We’re big waffle fans in our house.  And I mean, BIG.  As in when Andy’s parents are visiting and his sister is present for breakfast or brunch, I’m quadrupling my Yogurt Waffle recipe.  As much as we love it, I wanted to put a bit of a Summer spin on it.

These Raspberry Lemon Meringue Waffles scream “Eat me outside on the patio!”  Or at least, that’s what I imagine they’re saying.  Perfect to enjoy in the morning hours or even as a late night dessert.  Or if my four year old had her way, BOTH!
