Why You Should Try These Cauliflower Chaffles

What Is A Cauliflower Chaffle?

  • Keto. Out of all the things cauliflower has become, a chaffle may well be my favorite! A chaffle is a Keto or low carb way to enjoy waffle-like foods without all the carbs of a normal waffle.
  • Chaffle. In short, a chaffle is just a blending of the words cheese and waffle.
  • Cauliflower. A cauliflower chaffle is a delicious version of that using cauliflower to make a savory chaffle that’s great by itself, or for a ton of other uses!

Why Is This Chaffle Savory?

I know when most of us think about waffles, we think about a sweet version smothered in butter and syrup. Savory chaffles are actually very common! People have used savory chaffles made in the Mini Dash Waffle Maker as sandwich bread, burger buns, snacks and more!

What Kind Of Waffle Maker Is Best For Chaffles?

I use the Mini Dash Waffle Maker, as it’s the perfect size for using chaffles as bread or buns etc. If you want to use a full size, I recommend this Cuisinart. Belgian-style waffle makers do not work well.

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR HOW TO MAKE THE BEST CAULIFLOWER CHAFFLES EVER

  1. Patience. That’s the best tip. They don’t take very long but if you want a crisp keto waffle, you are just going to have to be a little patient and let it take the 5-7 minutes that it takes to crisp up. Just when you think it’s done? Give it another minute or two. Don’t rush.
  2. Layering. Don’t skimp on the cheese on the top and bottom. Use more than the recipe calls for if you think you need it. It’s the crispy cheese on the bottom and top that will make them crispy.
  3. Shallow waffles. If you want crispy waffles, the shallower the waffle iron, the easier/faster it is to crisp up the chaffle.
  4. No overfilling. Overfilled chaffle makers…well, they overflow of course. Which makes a huge mess! So if in doubt, underfill rather than overfill. No more than 1/4 cup of TOTAL ingredients at a time.
  5. No peeking. I can tell you from LOTS of personal experience, that opening the waffle iron every 30 seconds “just to check” doesn’t help the chaffle cook any faster. Your best bet is to not even open it for 4-5 minutes.
  6. No steaming. if you’re using the Dash mini, the little blue light goes out when it’s mostly cooked, but most importantly, the chaffle stops steaming quite so much. That’s a good sign that it’s done.
  7. Get hot. Wait until the waffle iron is hot before you add ingredients, and they’re a lot less likely to stick, and a lot easier to clean up.
  8. Mat it. Okay so about that overflow. I do find that it happens to me more often than I would like! One thing that has made cleanup easier for me has been to put a silicone trivet underneath.
  9. Crispy Cooling. Allow the chaffles to cool before eating. They get crisper as they cool, so try not to stuff the hot chaffle into your mouth right away.
  10. Make lots. Make enough to share, everyone will want them, no matter whether they’re keto or not.
