Savory Waffles with Ham, Cheddar and Brussels Sprouts

From the blog: Grab A Plate | Written by: Patricia | December 12, 2012


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 ounces precooked ham, cut into slices or cut into small cubes
  • 4 Brussels sprouts, cleaned, stems removed and cut into small slices
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper for seasoning
  • Nonstick cooking spray for your waffle iron


  1. Spray your waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray and turn it on to preheat it.
  2. Add the olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat. When it’s hot, add the sliced Brussels sprouts and cook until they soften and begin to caramelize, just slightly (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, blend together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and blend until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to season.
  5. Add the ham, cheese and Brussels sprouts to the batter, and gently mix together.
  6. When the waffle iron is hot, ladle the batter so it fills the wells in the iron, but make sure it doesn’t overflow. Cook until desired doneness and serve hot with maple syrup or honey mustard sauce.

I love breakfast any time of the day, so this is something I will try tonight! Don’t have brussel sprouts on hand-but I do have broccoli. So, that’s what I’ll use. Yum!

Hi! Well I think broccoli would work well, too! Hope you tried & enjoyed :)

You motivated me to make Savory Waffles so I tried them this morning for breakfast. I did not add the Brussel Sprouts; that seems better suited for dinner. My son Joe really liked them! Sure hope they fuel him to get an A on his Physics exam this morning!

That’s fun! Good luck to Joe & hope you try adding the Brussels sprouts another time :)

Totally relate to the Costco membership. It’s like… 100 dollars later and what did I buy?

I need to go to Costco now and buy a waffle maker. Super excited about your recipe. Do you ever refrigerate your batter?

Hi Luci!
I’ve grown to appreciate my waffle maker :) I’ve never refrigerated this batter, but I have with others. I wouldn’t keep it for more than a day or so, though.

This sounds great. Do you think it would make a good sandwich “bread” as well?

I hadn’t given that thought, Donna, but what a fun idea! Thanks!
