Waffles aren’t just for breakfast anymore. Try this kid-friendly wafflewich sandwich for lunch or dinner, and impress your family! I found this unique recipe while leafing through a Food Network: Kids Edition magazine. I was concerned about using the waffles right out of the freezer, but they cooked up quite nicely and even looked grilled when done in the frying pan.

Ingredients:

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and grated
1/3 cup honey mustard
8 frozen waffles
1/2 pound deli-sliced ham
1/4 pound sliced cheddar cheese
4 Tbsp. unsalted butter

Directions:

  1. Combine the apple and honey mustard in a medium bowl.
  2. Spread mustard mix evenly on to 4 frozen waffles
  3. Top waffles with the ham and cheese. Cover with the remaining waffles to make 4 sandwiches.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the waffle sandwiches and cook until golden, about 3 minutes per side, adding the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter when you flip.
  6. Remove to a cutting board and cut the sandwiches in half.
  7. Serve hot

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Where are the sliced tomatoes? After the first batch, I decided to add sliced tomatoes to the remaining two wafflewiches.
  • Be careful when flipping the sandwiches, as they may not yet have melted together – you may need to hold them with a finger on top when flipping.
  • I substituted yellow mustard for the honey mustard, just due to personal preference.

Yield: 4 wafflewich sandwiches
