How to Make It
Sift together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in cheese and pecans. Combine eggs and next 3 ingredients; gently stir into dry ingredients just until blended.
Spoon a heaping 1 cup batter evenly onto a preheated, lightly greased waffle iron. Cook 5 to 10 minutes or until crisp and done. Repeat with remaining batter.
Transfer waffles to a baking sheet, and keep warm, uncovered, in the oven at 200° until ready to serve. Waffles can be frozen in zip-top freezer bags and reheated in oven or toaster oven.
Note: To make Belgian waffles, spoon 2 cups batter into a preheated, greased Belgian waffle iron with 4 square grids. Cook until crisp and done.
