  • 8 frozen toaster waffles (plain or whole grain), unthawed
  • 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard (optional)
  • 1/2 lb. sliced deli ham
  • 1/2 lb. cheddar, thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • Cooking Directions

    Place 4 of the waffles on a work surface. Spread with the mustard (if using).

    Top with the ham, Cheddar, and the remaining waffles. Spread the top of each sandwich with 1/2 tablespoon of the butter.

    Melt the remaining butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

    Place the sandwiches in the skillet, buttered-side up. Cook, pressing with the back of a spatula and turning occasionally, until the cheddar melts and the waffles are golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
