1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large mix- ing bowl; whisk to blend. Add the buttermilk, eggs and oil; whisk until just combined. Stir in the chives and Cheddar. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
2. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).
3. Pour 1 heaping cup of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread evenly using a heat- proof spatula. Close cover of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffle is ready. Open cover and carefully remove baked waffle. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
