Low Carb Chaffle Stuffing Recipe

No 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. However, using a chaffle as the keto breading allows us to have keto stuffing on Thanksgiving or Christmas!

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.

These savory chaffles are cut into bite sized chunks and toasted with olive oil and parmesan cheese. A bacon, mushroom and leek mixture rounds out this low carb holiday dressing. All of it is combined with the best chicken bone broth ever, Bare Bones Broth, and baked to golden brown. This keto stuffing pairs perfectly with your holiday turkey, but you can also enjoy it next to prime rib or a Christmas ham.

What is a Chaffle?

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.

Waffle Maker

You can use any waffle maker to make the chaffle bread chunks. I prefer to use my Oster Belgian waffle make since it produces bite sized chaffle chunks once you cut out the squares. A Mini Dash Waffle Maker will work as well. 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. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases

Chaffle Croutons

This recipe for chaffle bread cubes can also be used as croutons for salads. Make up a bunch and store them in a ziploc bag or container. Be sure to let them vent to the open air so they can harden up over time.

This recipe for chaffle breading uses almond flour for structure and taste; however, you can use coconut flour instead. Use 3 tablespoons of coconut flour if you plan on substituting.

These chaffles are tossed with olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic powder and pepper before they are toasted in the oven over low heat. As mentioned before, you can do this step ahead of time. Then on the day that you want to serve the stuffing, continue with the rest of the recipe.

Savory Mushroom & Leek Dressing

The rest of this chaffle stuffing recipe is made up of bacon, sliced mushrooms, and leeks. If you don’t like leeks or have access to them, you can use a small onion instead.

This recipe also called for fresh sage and parsley. If you don’t have access to fresh herbs, dry herbs can be used in their place. Use about 1/3 the amount if using dried herbs.

Bare Bones Chicken Broth

The final step in the keto chaffle stuffing recipe is to bake the chaffle bread cubes and mushroom mixture in the oven with chicken stock. My favorite chicken broth is bone broth by Bare Bones Broth. This is an organic chicken bone broth made from bones of pasture raised chicken necks and feet. This produces the most gelatinous broth filled with collagen. They also have a Rosemary Lemon flavored chicken bone broth which would be delicious in this recipe too.

Make Ahead Keto Stuffing and Storage

Since many of us are cooking multiple recipes for our holiday meals, it’s important to find recipes that can be made ahead of time and this is one of those recipes. You can make the entire chaffle stuffing the day before your holiday dinner or you can just make the chaffle breading ahead of time.

If you chose to make the entire chaffle dressing the day before, leave the final baking step until the day of your holiday meal. This will only take about 30 minutes to cook.
