Meyer Lemon & Almond Waffles

These light waffles are perfect for a lazy Saturday morning. Meyer Lemons are believed to be a cross between lemon and orange, and they have a refreshing tangy-sweet flavor. The tartness of the lemon is a perfect counterpoint to the sweet waffle batter, and the toasted almonds adds a satisfying crunch.
