Ingredients

  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese
  • 2 oz sliced deli ham, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. grated Parmesan
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 c milk
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted, plus more for brushing waffle iron
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced

Special Equipment

  • Waffle iron

Instructions

  1. Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F.
  3. Whisk together the flour, Gruyere, ham, Parmesan, baking powder, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl.
  4. Whisk together the milk, butter, oil, 1 egg and the scallions in another bowl.
  5. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and gently stir until just incorporated (it's okay if there are some lumps).
  6. Lightly brush the top and bottom of the waffle iron with butter. Pour a heaping ¼ cup of batter onto each waffle section (some waffle iron should still be showing). Close the lid gently and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, 6 to 7 minutes. Keep the cooked waffles warm in the oven or covered with foil on a plate while you make the remaining waffles.
  7. Lightly brush the waffle iron bottom with more butter.
  8. Crack the remaining 4 eggs right onto the waffle iron and keep the iron open (do this in batches if your iron isn't large enough).
  9. Sprinkle the eggs with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites are set and the yolk is still runny, 4 to 5 minutes.
  10. Serve 1 egg on each waffle, using a spatula to transfer.
