Ham and Cheese Waffles

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.
