Ham & Cheese Buttermilk Waffles

Preparation Time

Cooking Time

Product(s) used


  • 1 cup Grimm’s Old Fashioned Ham Half, diced
  • 1 cup Medium Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (or gluten-free substitute)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp coarse salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk eggs, then whisk in buttermilk and butter.
  2. Pour the egg mixture into the flour bowl, and use a very light hand to gently mix.
  3. When the ingredients about 80% combined, fold in the cheese and ham, being careful not to over-mix as waffles can become tough.  
  4. Scoop about 3/4 cup of the batter into waffle iron (or per your waffle iron’s instructions) and cook until golden and crisp for about 3 minutes.
  5. Cook to order or keep them warm in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.

    Note: A nonstick electric waffle iron is recommended for the best results.
    The stovetop kind is more likely to stick, especially with melted cheese.
