Lemon Poppy Seed Waffle Recipe by Chef Michael Salmon

A myriad of waffle irons are available on the market, each producing a waffle of a different shape or size. There are thin waffles, thick Belgian-style waffles, round waffles, square waffles, even heart-shaped waffles. They all work well so choose the type and shape you like. When serving waffles, dust the top with powdered sugar, add a dollop of sweetened, whipped cream, and top with a garnish that will complement the flavoring of the waffles.
