Ham and Cheese Waffle

(Leftover) Ham and Cheese Waffle

If you are like my family (which is highly unlikely) you have a spiral ham for New Years.  I personally like spiral ham.  It occurred to me that I’ve never made a savory ham and cheese waffle, though I’ve done bacon…so why not do ham too.  (but not spam).

Ham and Cheese Waffle Ingredients:  

1 cup chopped ham

½ cup cheese (I prefer cheddar)

½ cup flour (wheat flour, all-purpose flour, whatever you prefer)

1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg whites)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tablespoon oil

½-1 cup milk or water depending on what you like

Spices I added: cinnamon

Ham and Cheese Waffle Recipe:

  1. Preheat a waffle maker
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl
  3. Add wet ingredients together (including the cheese) and mix in a separate mixing medium bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour into waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
  6. After cooked, put your ham and cheese waffle on a plate and add a layer of melted butter, maple syrup, greek yogurt, and more ham if you prefer!
  7. Some people prefer to serve their ham and cheese waffles with lemon zest, lemon juice, or fresh dill.

Savory waffles have become a staple for me lately! Plus a ham and cheese waffle is the perfect way to use ham and cheese from the holidays. Or extra ham and cheese you might have in your house.

Question for you:

 What is your favorite waffle combination? Do you prefer light and fluffy pancakes or waffles warm? Have you tried a ham and cheese waffle?
