These scrumptious waffles top our list of favorite ways to use leftover Easter ham. In lieu of baking powder, the batter uses yeast for leavening. This adds a little time to the recipe, but your reward is a more interesting, slightly fermented flavor that complements the savory ham and cheese.


  • 1/2 cup warm milk (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cups warm milk (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 ounces cooked boneless ham, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese (6 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • Honey
  • Snipped chives


  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the warm milk, the sugar and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine eggs, melted butter and the remaining 11/4 cups warm milk.
  2. Place flour in a large bowl; make a well in the center. Add egg mixture and yeast mixture to the flour. Stir until just moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy). Cover with plastic wrap; let stand at room temperature for 1 hour. Gently fold in ham and cheese.
  3. Following manufacturer's directions, add batter to a preheated, well-greased waffle maker; cook until golden and crisp. When done, remove waffle with a fork. Keep warm in a 300 degrees oven while cooking remaining waffles.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together sour cream and mustard. Serve waffles topped with sour cream mixture, honey and chives.
