Make the weekend special with a Sunday recipe that will win everyone over. The sharp, aromatic taste of nutmeg will perk everyone up. Top with your favorite fruit like blueberries, bananas or strawberries. Throw in 2 fried sunny side up eggs to complete the meal. You can also bake an extra batch of these tender, golden waffles on the weekend. Eat one, then freeze the other in packages of two, to pop in the toaster and reheat on hurried mornings.Recipe courtesy of Taste of Home.
