This morning I decided to experiment with savory waffles. I'm not a huge fan of really sweet breakfast foods, so this one was more my style than the traditional waffle. Also, I only have a Belgium waffle maker. These are ultra thick. Plus, I cheated by using a premade waffle mix out of a box. Feel free to mix up your own recipe for the batter and mix in the extra savory ingredients.
If using a pre-made mix, make enough batter for 12 waffles
1 T. butter
1 1/2 cups diced ham
1 1/2 cups finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 T. finally chopped fresh chives
3 T. Dijon mustard
6 T. maple syrup
Prepare waffle batter. Melt butter in medium skillet over medium high heat. Cook ham until edges of diced pieces are nicely browned. Remove skillet from heat and stir ham and cheese into batter and add diced chives. Spray waffle maker with non-stick spray. Cook waffles according to your waffle maker instructions.
For topping, mix Dijon mustard and maple syrup in a small bowl with a whisk until thoroughly blended and smooth. Either spoon on top of waffles or serve on the side as a dipping sauce.
