Ham & Cheese Waffles
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 large egg
4 TBS butter or margarine, melted & cooled
4 oz thinly sliced ham, chopped
1 cup shredded *orange* cheese (we used colby-jack mix, cheddar works well also)
2 green onions, chopped
*mustard for dipping*
Begin by combining the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl with a whisk.
Next, add the milk, egg, and melted butter. Combine thoroughly.
For this recipe we used deli style ham. To get it the right size (quickly) Jon used the pizza cutter to dice it all up. Fast and efficient.
The ham, cheese, and chopped green onion are added to the batter without over mixing.
Using a waffle press the batter is cooked. These waffles are not as crunchy as other waffles, so be prepared for the texture to be softer.
Don't be fooled though, they are super filling!
I like a little bit of mustard to dip my waffles in - but of the 5 people here - I am the only one. They don't know what they are missing!
If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, they make great snacks and would work well for a quick lunch.
We weren't so lucky this time...but next time that just means a double-batch!
