    What are Chaffles?

    Chaffles are a popular keto waffle that are mostly made up of egg and cheese. There many different recipe variations out there, including the peanut butter chaffle and the cheddar bay chaffle.This Rueben chaffle recipe uses almond flour and baking powder to provide a little more substance to the waffle, similar to a slice of bread. Then caraway seeds and thousand island dressing are added to give flavor similar to a slice of rye bread.

    The Best Waffle Maker for Chaffles

    dash waffle makerAlthough you can use any waffle maker will work for making chaffles. If you want the perfect slices of rye bread chaffle for this keto Rueben sandwich, I recommend the waffle maker by Dash. It makes the perfect portion of chaffle. To make Rueben chaffles using the mini dash, only add half the batter to make one chaffle. The entire recipe will yield two mini dash waffles.If you own a larger waffle maker, you can still make this chaffle sandwich recipe. Pour all of the chaffle batter in the center of the waffle iron and close it. Don’t worry about trying to spread the batter around to the edges. The batter will spread out by itself creating a perfect chaffle. This will make a larger Rueben chaffle, but you can cut it in half to get you two slices of chaffle bread.

    Corned Beef or Pastrami

    sliced corned beefTraditionally, sliced corned beef is used to make Rueben sandwiches, but many people like to pile on the pastrami instead. You can use either deli meat in this recipe. My favorite is corned beef.

    Low Carb Thousand Island Dressing

    Russian dressing is normally used on a Rueben sandwich but thousand island dressing has a similar flavor and I have created a recipe for Keto Thousand Island Dressing.This dressing is creamy and tastes delicious. It’s easy to make too. You can make it up ahead of time or if you like to menu plan, you can use the dressing to make a keto Rueben sandwich for one meal and the Keto Big Mac Salad for another.

    1. Fantastic Recipes. We’ve been doing KETO since October and your videos and recipes are a regular part of our diets. We used this recipe as burger buns. We used Cheddar Cheese too.

    2. Just made these and they were very flavorful and satisfying! The only changes I made were grinding my caraway seeds and used 1/2 mozzarella and 1/2 grated swiss in the chaffle. Get a good jar of crispy sauerkraut.

    3. Your “PIN” buttons aren’t working. Recipe sounds delicious, but haven’t tried it yet. Will post a report when I do.
