  • Yield: 12 waffles 1x


Make a big batch of these Sharp Cheddar-Chile and Ham Waffles and serve them up for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 packed tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ounce thinly sliced deli ham, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Seriously Sharp Cabot Cheddar Cheese
  • 1  (4 ounce) can diced green chiles, drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


Toppings: salsa, sour cream, avocado



  1. Whisk the buttermilk, eggs and brown sugar together in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in the butter. Set aside. 
  2. Combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  3. Add the wet mixture all at once to the dry and stir until batter is just combined. A few lumps are fine! Fold in ham, cheese, chiles and chives. Let batter rest 10 minutes.
  4. Preheat waffle iron. Brush lightly with oil (canola, avocado, grapeseed all work) and fill with batter. Cook following manufacturer’s instructions. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  5. Waffles are best served right out of the waffle iron. Otherwise, cool on a wire rack to prevent them from getting soft and soggy.
  6. Serve with toppings of your choice!
