Paffles (Pork Rind Waffles)

Hands down the best vessel for sandwiches when you’re trying to CUT THE CARBS but not the crunch. Paffles have a special place in our hearts because they have connected us to so many keto baes. We love seeing all of the variations in the wild. This is the OG recipe that came together when we were transitioning off the egg fast and into keto carnivore last year.

Some notes:

  1. We like using neutral tasting pork rind crumbs, like Aldi or Mac’s brand. Pork Panko is also a really great pre-made pork crumb product as well if you’re not trying to DIY everything.
  2. Our cheese of choice is organic valley brand mozzarella. It’s 1g total carb per serving or zero net carbs per serving.
  3. People have used other cheeses, such as cheddar, which we have been told helps it crisp up more – but the jury is still out on that.
  4. You do not have to include the garlic, but it helps mask any kind of pork essence.
  5. If you do not eat pork, try using fried chicken skins.
  6. If you make these and they are not crispy, thin out how you spread the dough onto the waffle maker and cook it longer.
