Low Carb Reuben Chaffle Sandwich Recipe

chaffle reuben sandwich with pickles If you miss a good reuben sandwich on the keto diet with lots of sliced corned beef, melted swiss cheese and piled high with saurkraut, I’ve got good news for you! You now enjoy the keto reubon sandwich thanks to the reuben chaffle bread.

This chaffle bread recipe adds a hint of rye bread flavor by adding some caraway seeds and a splash of thousand island dressing. If you cook it for a long time on your waffle will be crisp, just like a real rye bread reuben sandwich.

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 reubon 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 maker

Although you can use any waffle maker will work for making chaffles. If you want the perfect slices of rye bread chaffle for this keto reubon sandwich, I recommend the waffle maker by Dash. It makes the perfect portion of chaffle. To make reubon 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 reubon chaffle, but you can cut it in half to get you two slices of chaffle bread.

Corned Beef or Pastrami

sliced corned beef Traditionally, sliced corned beef is used to make reubon 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 reubon 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 reuben sandwhich for one meal and the Keto Big Mac Salad for another.

Is Sauerkraut Keto?

jarred sauerkraut Yes, sauerkraut is keto approved. Although it does contain carbohydrates, about 6 grams per one cup, most of those carbs are from fiber. Plus, sauerkraut contains live probiotic cultures which are very beneficial for a healthy gut.
