  • Tomatoes, if preferred


1. Spray waffle iron with cooking spray and heat.

2. Combine salad dressing, mustard and honey in a small bowl.

3. Spread dressing on one side of each slice of bread.

4. Divide meat and cheese and place on dressing side of bread to make 4 sandwiches.

5. Place 1 sandwich in the middle of heated waffle iron.

6. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes or until sandwich is golden brown and cheese is melted.

7. Repeat with other sandwiches.

  • Honey fact: A single honeybee will visit 50-100 flowers in a single trip out of the hive.
  • Dairy fact: Farmers sell 100 pounds of milk for only about $18.32.
  • Pork fact: Bacon comes from pigs and is one of the oldest processed meats in history.


Read the bread label to make sure it says "100% whole wheat bread" for extra fiber and wholesome ingredients. Other words like "wheat" or "cracked wheat" do not mean the same as 100% whole wheat bread.
