When we were children, both our families enjoyed the tradition of occasionally having “breakfast for dinner” on Sunday nights. Since we are here, waiting for a hurricane to hit our region, we decided it was the perfect time to carry on with that tradition. There are many recipes for homemade waffles, but we chose to use what we had here which is The Original Aunt Jemima mix.
1 cup Jarlsberg cheese, grated
1/4 lb. thin sliced deli ham, cut into strips
1 1/2 cups Aunt Jemima mix
1/3 cup oil
non-stick vegetable oil spray
Combine Aunt Jemima waffle mix with milk, eggs and oil; stir until large lumps disappear. For best results, allow batter to rest 4-5 minutes before baking. Pour desired amount of batter onto iron which has been sprayed with non-stick vegetable oil spray. Scatter 1 rounded Tbsp. thin strips of ham and 1 Tbsp. shredded cheese over each waffle. Cook until golden brown.
Serve with pure maple syrup and fried julienned potatoes with onion.
