Ingredients

For the waffles

  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter (or coconut oil), melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (sugar-free or regular)
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 2/3 cup blueberries

For the sandwich

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter or coconut oil, divided
  • 4 to 8 eggs
  • Fine sea salt and black pepper, for seasoning
  • 4 to 8 spicy sausage patties, cooked (you may substitute for turkey patties, chicken sausage or beef jerky)
  • Maple syrup

Directions

For the waffles

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.

Place the almonds in the bowl of a food processor and grind into very fine crumbles. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the ground almonds, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In a large bowl, whisk the egg, almond milk, butter or coconut oil, vanilla, lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, and maple syrup until combined. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined. Batter will be thin.

Lightly grease the waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray. Ladle a scant 1/2 cup of batter into each well, sprinkle about 2 heaping tablespoons of blueberries over the batter, and cook for about 4–5 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. (Cooking time will vary based on heat of waffle maker and desired texture of waffle.) Keep the cooked waffles warm on a sheet tray in the oven. Repeat with the remaining batter, spraying the waffle iron with more non-stick cooking spray if necessary.

 

For the sandwich

As waffles cook, place a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat, and add 2 tablespoons of butter. Cook eggs as you like (i.e. over easy, sunny side up, scrambled, etc.), seasoning with salt and pepper. Repeat with the remaining eggs.​
Cut waffles in half (or quarters for smaller sandwiches). Place a sausage patty on the bottom waffle, then top with an egg. Place the other half of the waffle over the egg. Serve with maple syrup.

Lemon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
