i love going out for a great brunch…but what can be better than eating homemade waffles in your pajamas? i’m feeling very inspired to add waffle maker to my never ending wish list of kitchen tools, thanks to below “saturday waffles” video and ham and cheese waffles recipe from bon appetit magazine.


  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup soda water
  • Non-stick vegetable oil spray
  • 1 cup thinly-cut strips of ham
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp white cheddar
  • maple syrup
  • preheat oven to 300°. Heat waffle iron until very hot. whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt in a large bowl. using an electric mixer, beat egg whites in a medium bowl until medium-soft peaks form. Whisk egg yolks, melted butter, buttermilk, and soda water in a medium bowl; gradually whisk into dry ingredients. fold in egg whites.
  • coat waffle iron with non-stick vegetable oil spray. pour batter onto iron, spreading it into corners (amount of batter needed will vary according to machine). scatter 1 rounded Tbsp. ham and 1 Tbsp. white cheddar over each waffle. cook until golden brown and cooked through. transfer to a baking sheet; keep waffles warm in oven between batches. serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
