Paleo Ham Waffles

I have been pining for a waffle maker for quite a while now. Unfortunately due to the size of our tiny flat, I have to be very selective with kitchen gadgets (going completely against my hoarding instincts) and a waffle maker just doesn’t make the cut. That hasn’t stopped me from accumulating a long list of waffle ideas, which I have been saving for a day when kitchen aid finally creates a fold up waffle iron that will fit into my utensil drawer.

While home in Vancouver over Christmas, I was excited to discover an old waffle iron in the back corner of my families pantry. Fast forward 5 days and 6 batches of waffles later, and I had finally gotten the waffle obsession out of my system, much to the dismay of my family who now have a freezer filled with frozen waffles to last them months.

Paleo Ham Waffles

As a fan of savoury breakfasts, the first recipe I wanted to create was for some sort of paleo savoury waffle. I am so happy with how they turned out! The waffle texture is light in the center and crisp on the outside and the combination of chive and mustard gives them a kick of spice. If you are vegetarian I think they would still taste great without the ham, or you could substitute it for sautéed mushrooms. I topped the waffles with a poached egg because mopping up a runny yolk with a ham and chive waffle sounded too good to pass up. 

These paleo ham and chive waffles can be prepared in under 20 minutes and are a great dish to serve to guests for breakfast or brunch. If you wanted to make this dish even more decadent you could turn it into eggs benedict by topping the waffles with a slice of ham and hollandaise sauce. If you are lucky enough to have a waffle iron, you should give these ham and chive waffles a try, you won’t be disappointed!
