What is a Chaffle anyway? The Low Carb/Keto Craze that Everyone is Talking About!

What is this latest low carb/keto craze, that has exploded all over social media?
It is a CHAFFLE!  But what the heck is a chaffle anyway?

A Chaffle is basically a waffle made of egg and CHeese, hence the name.

I’m unsure who actually came up with the name “Chaffle,” or if there was a specific recipe that started it, but I have seen many variations shared, from egg and cheddar cheese, to egg, cheddar and mozzarella, with additional spices and without.

But wait … there’s more!  Want something a bit heartier?  Add some ground sausage. Maybe some onions and peppers, or how about making a pizza flavored one, with pepperoni and spices? Continue reading “What is a Chaffle anyway? The Low Carb/Keto Craze that Everyone is Talking About!”

Almond Milk is an excellent substitute for use in baking, with morning coffee, or as a general dairy alternative, in a low carb/keto lifestyle.  Do you use it?  It is a fabulous choice!

Many commercial brands are less than ideal though.  One popular brand on the market contains the following ingredients:

ALMONDMILK (FILTERED WATER, ALMONDS), CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF: VITAMIN & MINERAL BLEND (CALCIUM CARBONATE, VITAMIN E ACETATE, VITAMIN A PALMITATE, VITAMIN D2), SEA SALT, NATURAL FLAVOR, LOCUST BEAN GUM, GELLAN GUM, ASCORBIC ACID (TO PROTECT FRESHNESS).

CONTAINS ALMOND.

What is “Natural Flavoring” anyway?  (Not to mention the other ingredients) Continue reading “Almond Milk”

Recipe Review – Sausage Balls

This post may contain affiliate links and we may earn compensation when you click on the links at no additional cost to you.

This morning, I tried a recipe from Kristie Sullivan’s book Keto Gatherings, pg. 328

Makes 24 Sausage Balls
Serving size: 2 balls
1.6 carbs per serving
This is assuming that your 0 carb sausage does not have any extra ingredients that might add carbs.

I followed the recipe as written, choosing Jimmy Dean Pork breakfast sausage as the base. The recipe stated “bulk pork sausage”.

Kristie recommended using a hand or stand mixer to incorporate all the ingredients.  I simply used my hands and mixed and squeezed well.  I always hear gloves when working with meat and all ingredients seemed to incorporate well. Continue reading “Recipe Review – Sausage Balls”
