  • 8 oz 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp coarse salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 6 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup unpacked grated Grimm’s Medium Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup diced Grimm’s Old Fashioned Ham Half


  • In a large bowl, whisk flour with baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk eggs, then whisk in buttermilk and butter.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the flour bowl, and use a very light hand to gently mix.
  • When the ingredients about 80% combined, fold in the cheese and ham, being careful not to over-mix as waffles can become tough.
  • Scoop about ¾ cup of the batter into a waffle iron (or per your waffle iron’s instructions) and cook until golden and crisp for about 3 minutes.
  • Cook to order, or keep them warm in a 200ºF oven until ready to serve.
