Something interesting popped up in my Bloglovin feed yesterday. Ham and Cheddar Waffle Bread from our ourbestbites.com I thought it would cost up for a lunch or dinner on ThriftyLesley, so I had a go at lunchtime today. I do have a waffle iron and used a little mix in it for a bit of fun. Whereupon the mix welded itself irretrievably to it, maybe I needed a little for fat. I haven’t used it for ages.
I have tweaked the recipe, of course! And assume that you won’t have a fancy cooking thingy to cook them with. If you do, great! You could use a George Foreman type grill, or a ridged grill that is placed on the burner.
150g self raising flour, Asda 1.5kg/45p, 2p
Big pinch salt, 1p
Half tsp any mustard, 1p?
50g cheddar, grated, Asda 800g/£3.84, 24p
60g value ham, I used 5 slices, Asda 400g/£1.65, 25p
A heaped tblsp fine chopped chives or spring onion. Spring onions, 45p, qtr bunch 11p
250ml milk, Asda £1.30/3.41 litres, 9p 60ml veg oil, £1.20/litre, 7p
1 egg, Asda mixed weight, 6 eggs/70p, 12p
Total cost 92p Serves 4, 23p a serving
Mix together the dry ingredients. Whisk together the wet ingredients.
Mix the two together well without over stirring.
Heat some butter/oil in a frying pan and dollop in spoonfuls of batter to make thin pancakes.
Mine were delicious, but next time, I would make them thinner.
Cook gently until the underside is brown and the upper has set. Flip over and cook the other side.
Serve immediately. Ourbestbites recommend popping them in a toaster if you need to reheat them, which sounds like a great idea for all the pancake recipes on ThriftyLesley. The batter will keep in the fridge for a few days.
Use any cheese in this, feta would be fab. Any shreds of meat, little bits from a chicken carcass, or crispy bits of pork or bacon. I had mine with salad leaves leftover from entertaining, with a drizzle of vinaigrette and very yummy it was too.
