Lemon Poppyseed Waffles with Blueberries

I’m on a waffle making kick!  Now that I’ve actually started using my waffle maker, I’ve really enjoyed experimenting with different flavors of waffles.  I’m still trying to find a go-to “plain” waffle recipe, but the flavored waffles are so much fun!  These lemon poppyseed waffles were delicious, especially topped with blueberries.  For this recipe, I like to use frozen blueberries because when you warm them up, they create lots of juice that is just perfect for drizzling over your waffles instead of (or in addition to) syrup.  Make a big batch and freeze the extras!
