This super easy (leftover) ham waffle sandwich was inspired by my 6-year-old kid.

Ham Waffle Sandwich

Prep Time: 2 Minutes   Cook Time: 5 Minutes   Serving: 1

My son and I love watching cooking shows together.  In fact, thanks to these cooking shows, my son is more open to try different food.  Anyway, we were watching one of our favorite cooking shows, Diners, Drive-in and Dives.  A diner serves their homemade ham and waffle sandwich.  As soon as the host, Guy Fiery, finished tasting it.  My son told me, "Mommy, we can try that."

So, there it is.  Most of the time, I buy pre-sliced uncured ham in a relatively small package to serve it.  But if you serve a ham dinner and got a lot of leftover, this is a great way to use it all up.  Best of all, it is unbelievably delicious and easy to make.

Amazingly, this recipe is very versatile.  You can make to serve for one, breakfast to-go, dinner for 8 or more.

After School Snacks Or Finger Food

My hubby and my son love the waffles with 4 mini ones sticking together.  You can cut the ham sandwiches by the size of the mini waffles to make mini ham waffle sandwich bites. 

You can serve mini bites for after school snacks or finger food in a party.  Always serve the maple syrup on the side to prevent the sandwiches becoming soggy.
