Sprinkle 1/8 cup parmesan cheese into the waffle maker. Make sure to cover the bottom of the waffle iron as shown in the video.
Fill the waffle maker with the cauliflower mixture.
Add another sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top of the mixture. Make sure to cover the top of the waffle iron as shown in the video.
Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until crispy.
Makes 4 mini chaffles, or two regular full-size chaffles.
These work great in a mini waffle maker (I use the Mini Dash Waffle Maker), but you can also use a regular size one as well.
These freeze well. Make a big batch and freeze them for later.
TIPS AND TRICKS FOR HOW TO MAKE THE BEST CAULIFLOWER CHAFFLES EVER
Patience. That's the best tip. They don't take very long but if you want a crisp keto waffle, you are just going to have to be a little patient and let it take the 5-7 minutes that it takes to crisp up. Just when you think it's done? Give it another minute or two. Don't rush.
Layering. Don't skimp on the cheese on the top and bottom. Use more than the recipe calls for if you think you need it. It's the crispy cheese on the bottom and top that will make them crispy.
Shallow waffles. If you want crispy waffles, the shallower the waffle iron, the easier/faster it is to crisp up the chaffle.
No overfilling. Overfilled chaffle makersâ€¦well, they overflow of course. Which makes a huge mess! So if in doubt, underfill rather than overfill. No more than 1/4 cup of TOTAL ingredients at a time.
No peeking. I can tell you from LOTS of personal experience, that opening the waffle iron every 30 seconds â€œjust to checkâ€ doesn't hep the chaffle cook any faster. Your best bet is to not even open it for 4-5 minutes.
No steaming. if you're using the Dash mini, the little blue light goes out when it's mostly cooked, but most importantly, the chaffle stops steaming quite so much. That's a good sign that it's done.
Get hot. Wait until the waffle iron is hot before you add ingredients, and they're a lot less likely to stick, and a lot easier to clean up.
Mat it. Okay so about that overflow. I do find that it happens to me more often than I would like! One thing that has made cleanup easier for me has been to put a silicone trivet underneath.
Crispy Cooling. Allow the chaffles to cool before eating. They get crisper as they cool, so try not to stuff the hot chaffle into your mouth right away.
Make lots. Make enough to share, everyone will want them, no matter whether they're keto or not.
