Preparation

  1. WHISK together flour, baking powder, salt, garlic and onion powder in large mixing bowl until combined. Stir in eggs, oil and milk until just combined.
  2. FOLD in ham, cheese and green onion until evenly distributed.
  3. SPRAY waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron (amount depends on size of waffle maker), close and cook according to manufacturer’s directions, until waffles are crisp. Remove from waffle iron and let cool on wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter.
