Savory Cheddar Chive Cornmeal Waffles - 30 Waffles

These crispy, savory waffles are good to serve with soups or your favorite chili in place of corn muffins. You may also try them with scrambled eggs and bacon for brunch or supper."


3 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups cornmeal (yellow or white)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
3⁄4 teaspoon salt
9 ounces shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (about 3⁄4 cup)
1⁄4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
5 1⁄4 cups reduced-fat milk
3⁄4 cup vegetable oil
6 large eggs
1⁄2 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Tabasco®


Place flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl; stir to combine. Add shredded Cheddar and chopped chives; stir. Place the milk, oil, eggs, and hot sauce a separate bowl; stir with a whisk to blend. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour 2 cups of batter just along the center of the lower grid; allow batter to spread toward edges for 5 seconds. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove bake waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
