On a weekend morning, there's nothing like a crispy waffle or a heaping stack of pancakes. And here's a way to make them even better: Add umami-rich ingredients like country ham, melted cheese or even mushrooms. Here, five fantastic savory pancake and waffle recipes for brunch:
1. Country Ham Flapjacks with Maple Syrup
Using store-bought corn muffin mix and leftover chopped ham to make these savory flapjacks is a quick and clever trick.
2. Cornmeal and Corn Pancakes with Poached Eggs
Making these pancakes with frozen corn kernels seems appropriate on an ice-fishing expedition, but by all means use fresh corn in summer.
