Toddler Recipe: Mini Ham and Cheese Biscuit Waffles

After a busy weekend away from home (I did a 5km colour run, so much fun!) I was totally stumped on what to pack for a daycare lunch. 5 ingredient Mini Ham and Cheese Biscuit Waffles to the rescue!

I first saw these waffle biscuits on Add a Pinch – I have made them a few times, so easy and fun! This time I decided to put ham and cheese right in them; toddler approved! (Toddler approval is a rare thing in our house.)

I can’t believe I just called my baby a toddler. Sigh. Time goes too fast.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cups self-rising flour
  2. 1/8 cup vegetable shortening
  3. 1/2 cup buttermilk
  4. 2oz cheese, shredded
  5. 1 slice ham, chopped up
Instructions
  1. Heat up waffle iron.
  2. Add flour, cheese and ham to mixing bowl. Cut in shortening until well combined, I like to use the whisk attachment on my stand mixer to make this easy but you can also use with a pastry blender, two forks, or knives. Pour in buttermilk and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Roll into small balls, press flat and place in waffle iron. Close lid and cook until waffle iron beeps (couple minutes); they should be golden brown. I could only cook 4 at a time, it took about 10 minutes or so to cook them all.
Notes
  1. Self-rising flour replacement: 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt and 1.5 tsp baking powder.
  2. Buttermilk replacement: add a splash of lemon juice or vinegar to your milk and let sit for a couple minutes.
