Ham Egg and Cheese Grilled Cheese

The must-have breakfast sandwich for all mornings made easily in your waffle-maker! You can make this ahead of time too!

This is the king of all grilled cheese sandwiches.

With eggs, bacon, and a double layer of cheese.

But the real kicker here is how this is made in the waffle maker from start to finish.

So there’s no flipping. No turning. No fuss. No mess.

And if you have a 4-slice waffle maker, you can make 4 sandwiches in seconds.

A 2-slice maker will also work. It will also help you portion control so you don’t end up eating all 4. By yourself. Like me.

Yum! My husband will love this.

Perfect for today’s dinner. Thank you.

I love this ham egg and cheese grilled .Thanks for this recipe share.

I have just discovered your site a few weeks ago and have made several of your dishes. Everything has been delicious, easy, and the whole family loves it! Thank you for what looks like another delicious recipe!

This looks insanely delicious! I need it in my life!

Genius making a grilled sandwich in a waffle maker. I love the cheese, ham and egg combo, so this recipe is on the menu for the weekend!

I had all the ingredients (and a waffle iron I didn’t know we owned!) and made this last night – super simple and simply delicious – I *may* have dipped mine in maple syrup because, it’s a waffle, right? 🙂

Well, I made it for family brunch today – my waffle iron is a two-slicer so I had to make individually. I used a multi-grain load bread – sliced much too thick on first one, but didn’t find out until I tried to close iron,I had to hold the iron together for 4 minutes – it didn’t close all the way but that was OK. Later sandwiches, I used very thin slices of the multi-grain loaf and laid the slices of the loaf horizontally across the iron – had to hold it together again, but still OK – turned out great!! On even later sandwiches, I added a romano tomato slice or two and a very thin slice of jalapeno – these turned out even better than great.

We don’t have a waffle iron, so we used a generic G. Foreman grill. IT WAS AWESOME! We made the sandwich a few different ways. Egg scrambled like in pic, and fried with the yolk all oozy and delish. Tried different cheeses. The sandwich is great all different ways! Try it!

I just made this didn’t have a waffle iron I used a skillet turned out great still. I seasoned the eggs used honey ham and honey wheat bread. Flipped the sandwich once browned. It tasted really good.

That looks absolutely fabulous as I am a huuuge fan of hot crispy sandwiches. But I feel obligated to tell you that this is indeed not a grilled cheese but a melt. grilled cheese has only cheese in it, no other solid ingredients between the bread. This is an important distinction.

DANG this looks good. I love grilled cheese but this version is extra special and certainly lives up to the name of your blog. Awesome photos!
