I have been following the keto lifestyle, most of the time, for the better part of the last two years. In other words, I have my moments or weakness like anyone else and sometimes I go off track. For instance, when my husband decided to make his famous cheesesteak hoagies! However, I figured out how to make a chaffle cheesesteak as well. Meanwhile, I am still trying to get him to go keto.

What you need to make a Keto BLT Chaffle Sandwich
First, you will need to have a mini waffle iron, such as a the Dash Mini Waffle Maker like I use. Since they are super affordable and small to store, it was a no brainer for me to grab one. I always order from Amazon because honestly I just am very short on time as a busy mom (plus all of the local stores were sold out of them anyway).
Well, let’s be honest, I also love to have a variety of kitchen gadgets around for playing with new recipes. In addition to this mini waffle maker I ended up also ordering the Dash Ice Cream Maker. To clarify, I am a kitchen appliance hoarder. I will admit it. But, because I buy them I always find ways to use them. As a result, that means more recipes to keep things interesting.
Making the Keto BLT Chaffle Sandwich taste like bread
The first chaffle recipe I came across online did not taste good to me. It was simply egg and cheese. As a result I was left pretty disappointed with my first attempt. In other words, in tasted like fried egg and cheese. Secondly it did not have a bread-like texture. As a result, I did some more research. I was determined to have my sandwich and eat it too!
After that I played with some additional ingredients. As a result, a more bread like chaffle was born.
This recipe is not only delicious but can hold a pretty hardy amount of sandwich ingredients. I have since used it to make several other sandwiches. For example, when my husband has his sandwiches I can now make the same things for myself in a keto version. In other words, I am one happy mama at lunch time every day now.
So, this sandwich really does hit the spot. Also, it was easy to make, delicious, and low carb. Certainly this will hit the spot when you are craving a good lunch.
As a result, I will be adding various chaffle sandwich recipes to my meal plans in the future because they are amazing! Similarly, I will also be adding some chaffle desserts and goodies to the mix (like chaffle cake).
So, on to the recipe…
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon Almond flour
- 1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Coconut oil cooking spray
- 1 Romaine lettuce leaf
- 2 slices bacon, cooked
- 1 slice of tomato
- 1/2 Tbsp Mayonnaise on each chaffle
- Spray mini-waffle maker with cooking spray, then preheat until ready.
- In a small bowl, beat eggs.
- Add rest of chaffle ingredients and mix well.
- Pour half of the batter into the center of the mini waffle maker and spread to fill the edges. If you overfill the first one use less each time so you avoid spill over. Close the lid and allow to cook until indicator light goes out (usually 2 to 3 minutes).
- Remove the chaffle and allow to cool on a cooling rack – repeat the process for the second chaffle.
- Spread half of mayonnaise on each side of chaffle.
- Finally, add bacon lettuce and tomato on top of one chaffle then top with remaining chaffle.
