We made these amazing ham and cheese waffles on a Friday night for breakfast for dinner and it’s possible they were the best waffles we’ve ever had. NO JOKE. This is probably one of the most perfect examples of the deliciousness of sweet and savory that you’ll find. The from-scratch waffle batter takes a bit of time (and uses three bowls, which I am normally totally against but these are worth it) so it’s a good choice for either a lazy weekend morning or breakfast for dinner. Be sure to ask the deli to slice the ham as thinly as possible. Don’t be alarmed at the thought of closing the waffle lid directly onto the ham and cheese – I reread the recipe several times to make sure that’s what I was supposed to do, and it turned out fine. The spray and heat on the waffle lid is enough to sear them and it doesn’t stick. Also, don’t be shy about using maple syrup on these – that provides all the oomph to the savory and sweetness and it won’t be quite as good without it. I followed the advice of some of the reviewers and cut the butter in half – one stick instead of two. They tasted perfect as they were, so I can’t imagine another stick in there – I’m sure it would be too greasy. Otherwise proceed exactly as directed and bon appetit!
