How to make Southern ham and cheese waffles

Print this recipe
I’ve never really jumped on the sweets-for-breakfast bandwagon, so the wonder of waffles has mostly escaped me. The recipe below, though, has turned me into a raving fan. It’s a savory waffle filled with ham and cheese. A spicy-sweet, honey mustard dipping sauce is the perfect finishing touch.
I can eat these waffles any time of day. They make a tasty savory breakfast that’s filling and nutritious. But they are just right for a homemade lunch or quick dinner. You can even make a big batch of them and keep them in the freezer. Just reheat them in the oven or toaster when you’re ready to eat them.
