Are you bored with eating the same sandwich over and over? Try these ham, cheese and spinach waffles for your next meal. They are a creative way to help get over your boring sandwich hump.

When I'm trying to come up with a quick idea for dinner, these waffle sandwiches are nice to put together in a hurry. Most households, including mine, have all the ingredients necessary for this sandwich waffle to work. They taste just like a grilled cheese sandwich loaded with your favorite meat and a little spinach so you don't feel so bad about indulging.

The best part is that the kids can help you mix the batter and cook the waffles. If you have leftovers, just place them in a ziplock bag and store in the refrigerator, and then toss them in the toaster to reheat.
