2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
3 large eggs
1 cup Wisconsin ricotta cheese
1 cup milk or half-and-half
1/2 cup butter, melted
Zest of 1 orange
1 cup (4 ounces) Wisconsin extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup smoked ham, diced
1/4 cup chives, chopped
Orange marmalade or maple syrup, warmed
Mix flour, salt and baking powder in large bowl. In a separate bowl, thoroughly combine eggs, Ricotta, milk, butter and orange zest. Gently stir into flour mixture and fold in cheddar, ham and chives.
For each waffle, pour about 1/2 cup batter into preheated nonstick waffle iron. Bake about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with warm orange marmalade or maple syrup.
