But the real kicker here is how this is made in the waffle maker from start to finish.

So there’s no flipping. No turning. No fuss. No mess.

And if you have a 4-slice waffle maker, you can make 4 sandwiches in seconds.

A 2-slice maker will also work. It will also help you portion control so you don’t end up eating all 4. By yourself. Like me.

Ham Egg and Cheese Grilled Cheese

The must-have breakfast sandwich for all mornings made easily in your waffle-maker! You can make this ahead of time too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 8 ounces Wisconsin cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced ham

Directions:

  1. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the top and bottom of the waffle iron or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Add eggs whisking, until they just begin to set; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Continue cooking until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains, about 3-5 minutes; set aside.
  3. Working in batches, place bread into the waffle iron. Top with cheese, ham, egg mixture, additional cheese and remaining bread slices. Close gently and cook until golden brown and crisp, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately.
