Lemon Thyme Waffles

Breakfast has been a popular meal at our house lately, even outside the typical breakfast hours! Joel has been slightly obsessed with waffles because he loves how our waffle maker makes such crispy waffles on the outside while being soft and tender inside. He’s definitely on to something because it's also been fun for me to play with different batters by adding a variety of ingredients! One recent waffle variation we made were these Lemon Thyme Waffles. The light waffle batter, thanks to the awesome folks of Krusteaz, is enhanced with fresh thyme from our garden and a nice dose of freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Lemon Thyme Waffles


Prep Time 5 min Total Time 20 min Servings 4-6


3 cups Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix
1 1/2 water
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme
1/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries (optional)
1/4 cup whipped cream (optional)
Whipped cream, butter and maple syrup (for serving)


Heat waffle iron per manufacturer's instructions. Spray with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together waffle mix, water, eggs, oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and thyme until fully combined.

Set aside for 2-3 minutes while waffle iron heats up. When waffle iron is ready, pour 1/4 - 2/3 cup (depending on your waffle iron) of batter onto waffle iron. Allow waffles to cook 3-5 minutes or until golden brown (or based on your manufacturer's cooking instructions). Serve with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top along with maple syrup and butter if desired.
