What’s a Chaffle?
I wish I were the genius to have come up with this idea, but I wasn’t! A chaffle is essentially a cheesy waffle. Almond flour and cheese are used in place of flour, and the whole thing cooks up light and crisp.
Chaffles tend to get a little limp if they’ve been sitting around a while, but you can re-crisp them by popping them back into the chaffle maker for a few minutes. Or, get TWO mini waffle makers and make your chaffles both at the same time.
Chaffles freeze great, and they can be re-crisped in the waffle maker.
How To Make This Leftover Turkey Cranberry Sandwich Chaffle
- Plug in your Dash chaffle maker (mini waffle maker) and let it preheat while you get the batter ready.
- Separate the eggs, saving the yolks for another recipe. Whip the egg whites with a fork until frothy.
- Add the sour cream to the egg whites and mix well.
- Add the cheese and almond flour to the egg white mixture and blend well.
- Pour half the chaffle batter into the Dash chaffle maker and close the lid. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until the chaffle is golden-brown and releases easily.
- Repeat with the remaining batter.
How To Assemble Your Keto Leftover Turkey Chaffwich
- Lay one half of the keto chaffle on a plate.
- Top with 3-4 ounces of thinly sliced turkey (add a bit of salt and pepper if you’re using leftover turkey).
- Add 2 tbsp of keto cranberry sauce and top with the other half of the chaffle.
- Dig in!
Chef Jenn’s Tips
- Add a 1/4 tsp of dried sage to your chaffle batter for more Thanksgiving flavor
- No keto cranberry sauce? Use mayonnaise instead.
- Make your chaffles ahead of time so that they’re just ready to re-crisp before assembling.
- Jazz up your leftover Turkey Cranberry Sandwich chaffle with a slice or two of crisp bacon.
What To Serve With This Chaffle Recipe
You bet! When made with almond flour, egg and cheese, they are super low in carbs.
If you’re going to put cheese on your turkey chaffwich, I’d use a good, sharp cheddar. Yum!
I love leftover cranberry sauce, but mayo and mustard are also tasty!
