Looking for something a little bit different on Christmas morning?  This is a favorite among some Amish.  The recipe was first shared in Lovina’s column a couple of years ago. This recipe was tested by one of our site regulars, Barbara, using a stove-top Wagner Ware #1408 waffle-maker, something you’d see in many Amish kitchens. Barbara reported that her husband was a little skittish about the idea of putting cheese in waffle batter, but he ended up really liking them.  You can top these with butter and maple syrup, just like a regular waffle and you get a great mix of sweet and savory.  This is what the waffles look like on the stove-top. Yum!


1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 large egg, slightly beaten

4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

2 ounces of thinly sliced ham, chopped

1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Heat waffle iron. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Stir milk, eggs and butter into flour mixture until just combined. Add ham and cheese. Pour 3/4 cup batter onto waffle iron. Cook

until waffles are golden, 8 to 10 minutes.

  1. I have to try these! I love sweet and savory food combinations, which have led me to try many different “odd” combinations. These sound simply wonderful!

    Of course, I have yet to try a recipe from The Amish Cook that wasn’t amazing!
