8 servings


  • Heat a waffle iron and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a bowl until well mixed.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the mashed potatoes, buttermilk and eggs until they are all combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the mashed potato mixture and whisk until just combined. Fold in the Buddig ham, cheddar cheese and scallions.
  • Add approximately 1 1/2 cups (depending upon type of waffle iron being used) to the waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer directions. Add cooking spray as needed and cook the remaining waffles until the batter is all used.
  • Garnish the plate with orange slices and serve each waffle with 1/4 cup sour cream immediately or freeze the waffles for future use.
