No today's post isn't about pancakes but the waffle. Not a sweet sugary waffle but a waffle-wich. In December I did a post on Waffle-chiladas. In that post was the recipe for the Jalapeno Cornbread Waffles. The waffles are made with the forbidden foods, the sugar, fat, flour and eggs. With that in mind I thought it would be the perfect day to share the Waffle-wich. I typically have these delicious savory waffles in the freezer. They make a nice base for meat gravies, creamed mushrooms, chicken ala king and of course the Waffle-chilada. They are also wonderful as a base for the Waffle-wich.
According to Wikipedia a sandwich is a food item consisting of 2 or more slices of bread with 1 or more fillings between them. The Waffle-Wich certainly qualifies.
2 to 3 thin slices deli ham
2 thin slices red onion
Dijon mustard, to taste
1 oz slice mild provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. With a sharp bread knife, carefully slice the waffle in half to make 2 "bread" slices. On one half of the waffle place the sliced deli ham. Top with red onion slices, dijon mustard and provolone cheese. Place the second waffle half on top.
Place waffle-wich in a preheated oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and waffle is crisp. Add your favorite sides and enjoy.
Have a happy and safe Shrove Tuesday. Now off to make pancakes for breakfast. :)
