Add to your ham chaffle

Chives – adding chives can create a richer flavor.

Change the Cheese – while we typically grab cheddar cheese, why not try out a different cheese? Mozzarella or gouda re both great cheeses to use with eggs.

Garlic Seasoning – I love me some garlic, my family – not so much. If you are a garlic lover, try adding some garlic seasons when you add in the salt and pepper to your ham chaffles for a garlicky flavor.

Onions – for a more omelette taste, try adding in a few onions.

Italian Seasoning – the flavors in Italian seasoning are a great addition to spice up any egg dish.

Favorite Ham

Our favorite ham that we use in all of our low carb recipes is the rosemary ham found at Costco. We make a monthly run to Costco and typically grab 3 packs of the rosemary ham for our family of 6!

This also can be made with leftover ham (honeybaked ham is our favorite holiday ham!)
