Today’s zero waste breakfast: Homemade Belgian waffles topped with freshly picked blueberries and bulk powdered sugar 😋
When we make Belgian waffles, we cook up a big batch using package-free ingredients from bulk stores. We eat a couple fresh off the waffle iron (which I got for $4 at a garage sale) then freeze the rest for quick and easy breakfasts later in the week. Topping them with fresh blueberries makes them extra delicious!
