A Chaffle Recipe Keto Dieters Can Make to Stay the Course!!
As part of my turkey leftover series, I thought it was time I introduced my BBQ audience to the Chaffle. What is the Chaffle You ask? Well, let me tell you that the chaffle is a game changer!
The Chaffle Recipe is Keto friendly option to make bread so you can have those things you really missed when you were eating Keto, Low carb and paleo: SANDWICHES!!
What is a Chaffle?
The world CH-AFFLE comes from the pairing of the words CHEESE and WAFFLE.
Essentially, mixing cheese with eggs, almond flour and a bit of baking powder make a chaffle- the sandwich bread made with NO GRAIN that makes it naturally low carb.
The KETO Chaffle
A Chaffle, since is it made with Cheese, is definitely keto but not paleo because PALEO is dairy free. However, if you’re not strict PALEO, this KETO chaffle recipe will get you by when you really want a quick sandwich bread that you can make with ingredients on hand.
If you’ve ever wanted to really know the differences between the KETO diet and the PALEO diet, I recommend this article I wrote a while back that digs into core differences and I give my own preferences for short term versus long term adoption of both of these styles of eating.
Turkey Leftover Recipes: The Turkey Chaffle Sandwich
The chaffle is an amazing way to enjoy a post Thanksgiving sandwich while getting back on that Keto or low carb horse after indulging on Turkey Day.
However, the Chaffle should not just be limited to sandwiches. They are an amazing way to reuse your other leftovers in creative ways.
Remember those “stuffing waffles” you saw on Restaurant Menus a while back? (or maybe that was just me! lol) Well, this basic Chaffle recipe can be adapted to add in whatever you want to mix in such as stuffing, cranberry sauce, berries or whatever suits your fancy.
Many people make Dessert chaffles and mix in pumpkin, sugar free chocolate or whatever suits your fancy.
For the Turkey Chaffle Sandwich, I recommend pairing the smoked turkey with a generous amount of that Alabama White BBQ Sauce and a big thick slice of tomato and LOTS of salt and pepper and of course, hot sauce.Print
An easy chaffle recipe to have in your recipe repertoire so you can stay low carb but still enjoy a sandwich!
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1 tbsb blanched almond flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- Whisk together egg, almond flour, and baking powder. Stir in mozzarella cheese and set batter aside.
- Step 2
Preheat a waffle iron according to its waffle settings.
Spray both sides of the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray or coat with coconut oil. Pour 1/2 of the batter onto the waffle iron and spread it out from the center with a spoon. Close the waffle iron and let the waffle cook until done- about 3 minutes. Waffle is done once you can easily remove it from the waffle iron. Repeat with remaining batter. Allow chaffles to cool for 2 to 3 minutes, and they will begin to crisp up.
