Here's a tips and ways to customize recipe:
- Protein: if you're not a fan of ham, then feel free to swap with another breakfast protein or leftovers that you have on-hand. Try this recipe with bacon or sausage to mix it up! We think this would also be great with pepperoni and mozzarella. Speaking of cheese...
- Cheese: Try it with any other shredded cheese that you have on-hand or that you like!
- Cook-Time: Just like ovens, all waffle irons cook at different temperatures. So you may need to test this recipe on your own waffle iron before perfecting it. We suggest starting at the lowest setting which will allow the waffle to cook internally while keeping a light golden brown crust.
- Mashed Potatoes: You can also use leftover mashed potatoes with this recipe if you don't have Minute Mashers™ – but they do make this recipe so simple!
