  3. With electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites in medium bowl until stiff peaks form. With rubber spatula, gently fold beaten whites, one-third at a time, into batter, stirring just until blended.
  4. When waffle baker is ready, spray with nonstick spray. Pour enough batter for 1 waffle onto center and quickly spread to within 1 inch of edges. Close baker and bake as manufacturer directs. Repeat, reheating and spraying waffle baker with nonstick spray before adding each batch of batter.

Stir in blueberries and lemon zest. To serve, top each waffle with about ½ cup berry mixture. Sauce may be stored refrigerated in an airtight container overnight.

Notes

To freeze the waffles, arrange in a single layer on a wax paper lined baking sheet and place in the freezer until frozen, about 2 hours. Transfer to a zip-close plastic bag and freeze up to 2 months.
