Sweet turned savory breakfasts are in right now and these amazing ham stuffed waffles are the perfect example. Waffles are made in the standard way with flour, eggs, butter, and a dash of sugar but instead of showering them with fruit, maple syrup, or chocolate and whipped cream, they are studded with cubes of ham. Oh this is just the beginning, you can add cheese, fresh herbs, spices, and bacon- the combinations are endless. Try these ham stuffed waffles this weekend, I bet you and your family will be pleasantly surprised.
