Low Carb Wonder Bread Chaffle Sandwich Recipe
Lunchtime just got a whole lot better now that you can make a keto sandwich and slurp some creamy tomato soup with it! It’s easy to make keto sandwich bread when you have a waffle maker. It only takes a few minutes to make and you will be chomping down into a keto chaffle sandwich that tastes like Wonder Bread with all your favorite cold cuts, cheese, lettuce and tomato sandwiched in between. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.
What is a Chaffle??
A chaffle is a keto waffle that is made of up of mostly egg and cheese. In this chaffle sandwich recipe, we add a few different ingredients to give the chaffle bread a flavor similar to white bread.
Instead of using a whole egg, we use two egg whites. This yields a fluffy chaffle that reminds me of thick fluffy slices of sandwich bread. Just add almond flour for flavor!
We also use mayonnaise as the fat instead of cheese. This helps to give the chaffle sandwich bread more of the Wonderbread flavor.
Recommended Waffle Makers for Making Chaffles
To make the chaffle sandwich bread, you can use any waffle maker. My favorites are the mini waffle maker by Dash since it makes the perfect sized sliced chaffle bread. It’s similar in size to a small slice of bread.
My other favorite waffle iron is the belgium waffle maker by Oster. This waffle maker has adjustable heat and it is a larger waffle maker, so you can pour the entire batter mixture into the waffle iron. When it is done cooking, cut the waffle in half to get two keto bread slices to make your keto chaffle sandwich.
Really, you can use any waffle maker to make your keto white bread waffle.
What kind of Mayonnaise to Eat on the Keto Diet?
Mayo is keto approved because it is made up of fat. However, if you are trying to eat strict, clean keto, you may not want to use just any mayonnaise on your chaffle sandwich.
Regular mayonnaise is made using Canola oil and other vegetable oils. Some experts believe these oils are not good for us. If you want to avoid vegetable oils in your diet, you can use mayo made with avocado oil instead. Avocado mayo tastes very similar to regular mayo. In fact, I can’t tell the difference.
Some of my favorite brands of avocado mayo are by Primal Kitchens and Chosen Foods.
Are Deli Meats & Cold Cuts Keto Friendly?
There are two things to be aware of if you are wanting to eat deli sliced meat on the keto diet and in your chaffle sandwich. The first is if you are wanting to avoid preservatives or nitrates. Look for deli meat that says preservative-free or nitrate-free.
The second is that some cold cuts do contain a small amount of sugar that acts as a preservative in them. Look on the nutrition label and ingredient list to see which ones do. Some brands of deli meat that I find to be safe to eat on the keto diet are Boar’s Head and Applegate.
Keto Waffle Storage & Freezer Instructions
If you are a keto meal prepper, you can make this chaffle sandwich bread ahead of time. It’s easy to prep up a few days of keto sandwich bread and store them in the freezer or refrigerator; however, nothing tastes better than a fresh, fluffy hot chaffle straight out of the waffle maker.
To store in the freezer, flash freeze each slice of chaffle bead. Once frozen, wrap in plastic wrap and store all the wonderbread chaffles together in a freezer safe bag.
To reheat, put in the oven, microwave or toaster to unthaw.
Enjoy Easy Keto Tomato Soup with Your Sandwich
A classic lunchtime favorite is tomato soup with a sandwich. You can enjoy both on the keto diet with ease by using keto soups by Power Provisions. I partnered with Power Provisions for this sponsored recipe since they make a line of delicious bone broth based, keto approved soups that are ready-to-cook and only take a few minutes to prepare. Now having a keto soup and sandwich is an easy lunch option.
