Savory Waffle with Ham & Egg

For this month, I\’d like to share recipes that celebrate my home state of Ohio and the Midwest! To kick things off, here\’s a play on a \”hearty\” breakfast (the \”slam\” breakfast Denny\’s).


4 thick slices Canadian bacon or deli ham
4 eggs
4 frozen whole grain waffles (We like Van\’s Gourmet Multi-Grain. Each waffle packs 2.5 grams of fiber and just 95 calories.)
2 Tbsp maple syrup
4 Tbsp shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Salt and black pepper to taste
Parsley (optional)



  1. Heat a non-stick skillet or sauté pan over medium heat. Coat with a bit of olive oil cooking spray and cook the Canadian bacon for a few minutes on each side, until well browned.  Remove.
  2. Coat the same pan with a bit more spray and cook the eggs (2 at a time, if you must; avoid overcrowding the pan) sunny side up until the whites have set but the yolks are still runny.
  3. In the meantime, toast the waffles. Top each toasted waffle with a slice of meat, a drizzle of maple syrup, a sprinkle of Cheddar, and the warm fried eggs.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with parsley (if using).
