    chaffle stuffing in a casserole dish with a spoonNo holiday menu is complete without a side of stuffing or dressing, as some parts of the world call it. Traditional stuffing is made up of dried chunks of bread or cornbread. That’s hard to accomplish when you are on the keto diet. You could use some of the keto breads that out now on the market; however, many of them contain vital wheat protein which is gluten. Gluten can cause inflammation so if you are trying to stay gluten-free, I wouldn’t go that way. Using a chaffle as the keto breading allows us to have keto stuffing on Thanksgiving or Christmas! All you need to add is your favorite ingredients like mushroom, bacon, broth, leeks and parsley!Since chaffles are easy to make, this Thanksgiving side dish is fairly easy to make and can easily be made the day of your holiday meal or the day before.

    A chaffle is a keto waffle that is made up of primarily cheese and egg. Other ingredients are added for structure and flavor. This recipe for chaffle croutons uses mozzarella cheese since this gives the chaffle breading a crispy texture. It doesn’t taste like egg and cheese, especially when we add in our savory components like fresh herbs, bacon and toast them with parmesan cheese.

    Waffle Maker

If you are using a belgian waffle maker, you will get 4 larger chaffles out of this recipe. For the mini Dash waffle maker, you will yield about 8 chaffles from the recipe.
