Let me not forget what my parents ask for the breakfast; yes, waffles as well. For them I made these ham and cheese, it sure pleased their appetite.
Ham and Cheese Waffles
Makes 6 to 8 waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups buttermlk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
3 ounces sliced deli ham, minced
3 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Heat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 200 degree. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet and set aside.
Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk, melted butter, and egg together. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture, pour the buttermilk mixture into the well, and gently whisk together until just incorporated with a few lumps remaining (do not overmix). Gently fold in the ham and cheddar with a rubber spatula.
Spread the appropriate amount of batter onto the waffle iron and cook until golden brown, about 3 1/2 minutes. Transfer the waffles to the wire rack (do not overlap), cover with a clean kitchen towel, and keep warm in the oven.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Before serving, remove the towel and let the waffles crisp in the oven, about 3 minutes.
