For a quick, filling, and healthy meal, nothing beats a good sandwich. This recipe is a twist on the classic ham, cheese, and tomato sandwich by replacing the bread with chaffles to create a lower-carb, keto-friendly option.
Chaffles are cheese waffles and can be enjoyed sweet or savory and with as many toppings as you’d like. These chaffles are light, fluffy, and simple to make with only four ingredients. The egg acts as a binder to keep the chaffle together, the almond flour is a nutritious alternative to plain flour, and the mozzarella gives it that signature, cheesy flavor.
You can make the waffles in a traditional waffle maker, and if the mixture is too thick for your liking, you can add some water or milk to thin it out.
We’ve included ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce, and mayo as ingredients for that classic sandwich combo, but feel free to experiment and add in or take out elements based on your preferences. Havarti cheese is a popular choice for sandwiches as it’s slightly sweet and nutty with a subtle taste. However, cheddar, provolone, or brie also work well!
The addition of fresh tomato and lettuce gives a refreshing crunch that contrasts the salty ham and cheese. Add some mayo for sauce, and you’re good to go!
