What is a “chaffle”?

“Chaffles” were created by the keto community in order to make a fast and easy bun alternative to high carb breads.

Pretty soon, people caught on to “the chaffle life” and put their own spin on different kinds of chaffles.

And, there’s literally hundreds of combos out there!

How many carbs are in fried pickles?

My favorite fried pickles are from Buffalo Wild Wings.

However, they pack a punch at 63 carbs per order.

And, that’s just way too many carbs if you’re on the keto diet.

How do I make keto fried pickles?

These keto fried pickles are super easy to make.

But, you’ll need to know a few tricks before you begin.

First, you’ll start by getting your mini waffle maker nice and hot.

Next, spray the mini waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray.

Then, you’ll want to add a layer of pepper jack cheese to the bottom part of the waffle maker. Layer with three or four pickles and more shredded pepper jack cheese. Close your waffle maker.

Finally, the most important part! do not open your waffle maker under any circumstances for 2 to 3 minutes. If you do, you’ll risk ruining the cheese. Ideally, you want it hardening to a crispy delicious golden brown.

Used the Dash square waffle maker and will definitely NOT be trying that again. The channels are deeper and clean up was a nightmare! The oil from the cheese just stays there and takes too long to clean. Tasted great though. I have the round one and i think it's not as deep.
