Chaffles : Jalapeño Popper : Keto : Low Carb



Chaffles you may be asking ...
I've not heard of them!
I've not tried one!

Should I try them?
Well, they certainly fit with my LCHF menu plans, and let me share some more information about them.

If you haven’t heard of the term “chaffle” yet It's the latest craze that has taken the diabetes community by storm!

What is a chaffle you ask?
A chaffle is basically a cheese and egg alternative to bread, cooked in a mini (or regular, just adjust recipes accordingly) waffle maker that can be used for anything from breakfast foods straight through to your after-dinner treat. It basically acts as a base to any creative concoction you can conjure up.

Why are people with diabetes so excited about chaffles? 
Well for one, those of us who love to experiment with new low-carb options now have this new blank canvas to create from. But more importantly, this latest cooking invention can also help keep your blood sugars in check straight from morning till night! That's good news! 

But you don't have to be diabetic to enjoy them, why not give them a try! 

Naomi Sherman says, "Is there anything chaffles can't do? With only 4 g of carbs, chaffles are the go-to keto (low carb) craze that can rock any flavour, sweet or savoury. Here they get a spicy sass and layers of complex flavours with cream cheese, bacon, and jalapeño poppers. You'll never miss waffles again.

Ingredients
Serves Four
Chaffles
4 eggs
2 cups (225g) cheddar cheese, shredded/grated
2 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped (save some for garnish)
Topping
½ cup (125ml) cream cheese, softened
½ tsp garlic cloves, minced
1 scallion (green/spring onion), chopped finely
½ cup bacon (125ml), chopped and cooked
2 fresh jalapeños, seeded and sliced

½ scallion, chopped for garnish
Tips
A large waffle maker takes 6 minutes and a mini waffle maker about 3 minutes per waffle. 
These chaffles are best eaten straight away but can be frozen and reheated. Instead of fresh jalapeños, you can use pickled jalapeños for equal deliciousness."

Goodness. Chaffles sound fun to make and I have a waffle maker, too. Old, but still works fine.

Sue said...

I've bought a chaffle maker, but not tried them yet. I'll report back when I do xx

Love their versatility.

I love chaffles! So easy...1 egg and 1/2 cup of cheese is the simplest version, but maybe not the best. They lend themselves to such variety! I bought the small one person maker, but am thinking of getting a full sized one because I could so easily make and freeze more.

R's Rue said...

Yum.

Laurie said...

Wow wow wow,, that’s all I can say,, oh and thank you,, sounds delicious,,

Rose said...

I wonder what Roger would think of these...I cannot take jalepenos...I actually think I am allergic to them. But he used to love them.

aussie aNNie said...

oooh sounds so scrumptious.xx

My name is Erika. said...

Now that is something new to me and I think it is a fabulous idea. I take it you have to grease the waffle maker pretty well so the cheese doesn't stick. And yours look so yummy!

Sandra Cox said...

Oh my goodness. I may have to try these.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Yum! I wish I had a waffle maker. These sound unique and delicious.

Lorrie said...

I've never heard of Chaffles but they sound good.

peppylady (Dora) said...

Some time I can do cheese and other time I can't

Iris Flavia said...

Thank you Jan. It may take a while though, as I have a mild flu and my tastebuds take a break...

Lee said...

My friend who is on the Keto diet has one of these makers...She loves it...and what it makes!

David M. Gascoigne, said...

If it has jalapeños bring it on! We use them at least two to three times per week and even make a wonderful jalapeño cheese bread.

I must admit I have never come across chaffles before, they certainly look good.

RO said...

I've never heard of this, but I;m willing to give it a try because it looks amazing! Hugs and Happy New Year! RO

Ygraine said...

I have never heard of a "chaffle"...so your post is really intriguing. They sound really delicious...but I would omit the jalapenos. I ate some once...and suffered burning gums and tongue for days! Lol

Have a great day!:))

Hello Erika, many thanks for your comment.
Yes, you must grease the waffle maker first …
These are so popular, I'm sure you will like them.

All the best Jan

Going to get a waffle maker and make some of these. Could be my new favorite.

I need to look into this. The grandkids love waffles, sweet ones of course, but we don't indulge them. So might have a go with this for ourselves. Problem is they don't like cheese, except they would live on pizza if we let them. Yes, it's completely irrational.

William Kendall said...

I would try them.
