Gluten free waffles with almond flourHam and Cheese Waffles (Gluten-Free)

These gluten-free Ham and Cheese Waffles came about as a need to use up our leftover Maple Glazed Ham and we are so glad it did because these waffles are SO GOOD! If you haven’t tried savory waffles before let us introduce you to the perfect mix of sweet and savory! Of course, you could keep this all savory and omit the drizzle of honey on the top, but we thought it really took it over the edge of deliciousness and really recommend serving it this way!

With the upcoming holidays you are going to want to keep this recipe at the ready! This is such a great breakfast or brunch idea to serve a crowd! Our recipe serves 4, but it can easily be doubled or tripled and the waffles can be kept warm in a low oven to keep hot before serving!

These gluten-free waffles use my trusty blend of almond and tapioca flour as the base! We use this blend for a lot of our recipes because it is simple, versatile and creates a product that is satisfying.
