Oh my gosh! Have you tried chaffles? They are all the rage in the keto world.
We gave them a try to save carbs because I am a type 2 diabetic. Any carb savings is a good thing, but I’m not so thrilled with really no carb items… until now!
Chaffles are basically egg and cheese waffles. And they have a remarkable texture and taste that is super close to real waffles! People are making them in so many slight variations and using them for bread substitutes… like for sandwiches and just to have something like bread to eat with their keto meals! Or any meal really.
They are super easy to make, too. And if you just happen to have one of these super cute little waffle irons, you are in like Flynn! We got one at a closeout outlet place for $3. You can get them on Amazon for really cheap, like $15??? They are fun for regular waffles or even like grilled cheese sandwiches with regular bread. Just a fun little machine.
We made some with a scrambled egg and a little bacon and it made a wonderful little breakfast sandwich! I have made them like a BLT and they were delish. Even had a pair with a burger and then tried with tuna fish salad. All equally good.
We found that a teeny bit of flour helps with the taste and texture. We played around until we got the smallest amount that helped with texture and taste but kept the carb count super duper low.
Here is what we found that we like a lot!
We tried half a dozen variations that we saw all over and finally came up with the one that we all feel is really good and yet super low carb! And then to celebrate, we made breakfast sammies! Here are our two recipes that we used!
Windhaven Approved Chaffles
1 tablespoon of mayo
2 tablespoons of fine shread mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon of all purpose flour (could be almond if you wish!)
Whisk together good, pour half into a small waffle maker and cook. Takes a few minutes. Then cook the rest of the batter. Two lovely chaffles with a very low carb count. (Mostly just the flour)
If you want to use almond flour, you MIGHT have to add like a 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder to help them raise up a bit. They will be even lower in carbs if you use almond flour. We are going to give that a try when we get back to civilization and they have such a thing! haha… But one tablespoon of regular flour is like 6 grams of carb, so it’s really not too bad for a whole bun or a pair of waffles, etc. You go with what you have sometimes! Still the almond will make them like 2 grams!!!!
Windhaven Approved McDonalds Egg Sauce
1 tablespoon of DILL mustard (must be dill!)
2 tablespoons of mayo
A sprinkle of garlic powder
A sprinkle of kosher salt.
Mix together nicely and you have a copycat of the secret sauce on the McD’s breakfast sandwiches! The dill mustard is a little hard to find, but we did find it at Walmart.
This is really good just a dab on scrambled eggs, too!Pin It
