Waffle Wednesday: Ham and Cheese Waffles

As you’ve seen on the blog, sweet waffles are my thing.  Chocolate chips, yes.  Cinnamon, absolutely.  Savory waffles?  Umm…not so much.  (Bacon waffles don’t count….as far as I’m concerned, bacon is its own food group!)  However, I thought I would give it a whirl, as ham and cheese sammies are some of my favorite…melty cheese, warm ham….mmmm that is comfort food right there…….and isn’t ham another version of bacon…I mean, they both come from a pig….anyways, I digress……….

My ingredients were fairly simple, but made an amazing waffle.  I served mine with butter and apple butter (yes, I’m weird, but it really was good).  You could also serve with butter and maple syrup.

Ingredients:

nonstick cooking spray

2 cups Heart Smart Bisquick Baking Mix

1 1/2 cups milk (I used 1% milk)

2 eggs

1 cup shredded cheese (I used what I had on hand….preshredded cheddar, but any variety will do)

1/2 cup ham, diced into little cubes (I took honey ham lunch meat and warmed it in a skillet on low heat just so it would release more of its hammy flavor)

1.  Preheat waffle iron.  Use this time to chop the ham and put it in a skillet to warm up.

2.  Mix dry ingredients.  Add in eggs, milk, cheese, and ham and whisk together until just combined.

3.  Spray waffle iron with cooking spray.  Spread batter onto waffle iron and cook as directed.  Remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.  Serve with fruit, butter, and syrup!  Hearty, filling, and delicious!

Waffle Wednesday: Gingerbread Waffles with Cranberry Sauce

2 1/2 cups Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
3/4 cup apple butter
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs

1. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to
375ºF; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening.
(Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance
and disappear.)
2. Stir all ingredients until blended. Spoon batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto
hot griddle.
3. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until brown.

For Syrup: I just took a bit of whole berry cranberry sauce out of the can and heated it on low in a small saucepan. I spooned it over the top of the waffles and served them with butter and maple syrup to drizzle.
