I tried a new chaffle recipe today. This one uses pork rinds and thus where it gets its name – paffle chaffle. It offers a different texture with a little extra crunch.
Long live the chaffle!! Tell me you’ve tried chaffles? I think they are a must for anyone living the keto or low carb lifestyle. They open up so many more food choices and options.
I’m not a huge fan of pork rinds but I love that they are a great keto option vs chips. They can also be used in recipes like the paffle chaffle.
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese I used mozzarella but use whatever cheese I have on hand.
- 1/4 cup crushed pork rinds
- 1 egg
Mix all ingredients together. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into your mini waffle maker and cook for 3-4 minutes.
This recipe is very similar to the basic chaffle but with the addition of the crushed pork rinds. I was worried that it would change the flavor but it really didn’t. It was tasty.
The batter is thicker than the basic chaffle but it poured and spread nicely on the mini waffle maker. I was expecting the outside to be super crispy but it wasn’t. It was still soft but held together really well.
Today, I made these two and then used them in my Keto Copy Cat McGriddle. The paffle chaffle texture was actually perfect for the Copy Cat McGriddle.
Now will I make the paffle often? Maybe not. The Basic Chaffle is just super easy. No needing to crush the pork rinds. But when you want something a bit different or wanting a different texture, the paffle is perfect.
Make sure you check out all of my Keto recipes. Let me know which chaffles you’ve tried and which version is your favorite. Do you prefer the basic chaffle or the paffle chaffle?
