4 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 1 cup milk

  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 (16 ounce) package Farmland® Deli-Style Sliced Ham

  • 4 slices Swiss cheese

  • ½ cup arugula or spinach leaves

  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. In a medium bowl stir together the flour, sugar, basil, baking powder, and salt. Add egg, milk, shredded cheese, and oil. Stir just until moistened. Add batter to a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron and bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off waffle iron. Repeat with remaining batter. You should have 8 4-inch waffles.

  2. For each sandwich, spread waffles with mustard. Layer ham, sliced cheese, and arugula on half of the waffles. Top with remaining waffles, spread side down.

  3. Heat a griddle or 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add butter until melted. Add sandwiches. Cook for 4 minutes or until cheese is melted, turning once.
