Ham and Cheddar Waffles

We had this recipe before and I LOVED it the first time. The cheese gets crunchy and its a delicious way to enjoy a waffle. This time I had one apple that I needed to use so I shredded that up and added it in.

I apparently need a cooking break this week...although I know I won't get one. I've had numerous recipes so not work out for me. It could be that I try to do too much at one time. First it was the mac and cheese(while it was delicious it was not a creamy mac and cheese), then it was the egg biscuit cups, and now the first waffle I made separated and stuck(despite it being non-stick and I greased the griddle.)Little did I know that my "little helper" changed the setting so it didn't cook long enough. Oh I've also made dinner twice and not eat it because I wasn't feeling well and it just didn't seem appetizing...but see you can't always have great days/weeks I suppose.

Ham and Cheddar Waffles-All You magazine
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1 large egg, beaten
4 tbsp butter, melted and cooled(I used half applesauce)
2 oz thinly sliced ham, chopped
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Whisk together dry ingredients. Stir in egg, milk, and butter until combined. Fold in ham and cheese. Place batter in waffle iron and cook according to the directions. *I have a Belgian waffle maker and I doubled the recipe and only had 6 waffles....this was also on the highest setting and let it cook a little longer as they seem to need the extra time to cook.

**You could easily leave the ham out and use apple instead. I also would like to try it with turkey. Q and A really loved them.


  1. Neat! What did you top them with, if anything?

    I'm sorry you're having an off week. It happens to us all. Just ask my husband about the week I made ramen-rice chowder. Blech. ;)

    Savory waffles are something I've wanted to try but haven't done yet. Have you ever made a different flavor?

  2. i didn't put anything on them...i thought about some butter, but that's all I could think of that would have been good.

    I've never made a different flavor. I want to try turkey and cheese but I have yet to do it. I think anything you put in a sandwich might work as far as meat and cheese go.

  3. These sound really good. I like to make cornbread waffles with chili. I put cheese in them too, the browned bits are the best :)

    Sorry your week has been lousy. I had that week last week. I feel your pain LOL
