The Best Keto Tuna Melt Chaffle Recipe

I just made the Best Keto Tuna Melt Chaffle Recipe EVER!  It had a crispy outside crust with a cheesy center!  It was just as good and if not better than a tuna patty recipe.  Only because it takes longer to make the tuna patties than it does to make a keto chaffle recipe.

Keto Tuna Melt Chaffle Recipe Instructions

  1. Preheat the mini waffle maker.
  2. In a small bowl, add the egg and whip it up.
  3. Add the tuna, cheese, and salt and mix well.
  4. Optional step for an extra crispy crust:  Add a teaspoon of cheese to the mini waffle maker for about 30 seconds before adding the recipe mixture.  This will allow the cheese to get crispy when the tuna chaffle is done cooking.  I prefer this method!
  5. Add 1/2 the mixture to the waffle maker and cook it for a minimum of 4 minutes.
  6. Remove it and cook the last tuna chaffle for another 4 minutes.

 

This recipe makes two tuna melt chaffles.

Most Common Questions About Chaffle Recipes

 

What is a chaffle?

A chaffle is a cheese waffle.  It’s made with mainly cheese as the base of the recipe instead of flour or nut flour.

 

Why is it called a chaffle?

It’s called a chaffle because cheese + waffles = Chaffles!  It’s just a clever name that someone in the keto community invented.  Pretty cute, huh?!!

 

What kitchen gadget do you use to make chaffles?

I love my little Dash Mini Waffle maker and I use it all the time.  You can use a full-size waffle maker, just be sure you double the recipe in most cases.

 

Can you freeze chaffles?

Yes, they freeze well!  Just be sure to wrap them tightly in an airtight container to keep them fresh longer.  You can freeze them for up to a month.  I haven’t tested any longer than that.

 

Can you make chaffles for the whole week at one time?

You can also prep ahead of time and make fresh chaffles for the week.  They will stay fresh as long as you keep them refrigerated.  To reheat them, simply pop them in the microwave or air fryer to heat them up.  The air fryer tends to get them nice and crispy if that’s what you are going for!

 

Why did my chaffle stick to the grill and make a sticky mess?

I find this happens when you don’t cook your chaffle long enough in the griddle.  If you lift it or try to remove it before it’s done, the dough is not cooked all the way through and it leaves the dough sticking on the outside only separating when you open the griddle.  I find it’s best to cook most of the chaffle recipes for a minimum of 3 to 4 minutes.

If it’s a simple dough with cream cheese, egg, and cheese, you can get away with maybe 3 minutes as a minimum.  In some cases, if you have chicken or tuna in a recipe, you may need to cook it even longer.  Cook time for protein-based chaffles can be anywhere from 4 to 7 minutes depending on the recipe.

    I made this yesterday morning and I think you’re my new favorite Keto recipe site. I’ve chosen two more recipes to try and I’m very excited about how they will turn out. I’m definitely a new fan and thanks for the way that you cook!!!
    Oops!! Just saw another one!!!

    I have to admit that I was skeptical of this recipe with no almond flour, but decided to give it a try with no alterations. I am so glad that I did! It was marvelous! I put grated cheese on for 30 seconds first, as suggested but didn’t spread it out over the whole waffle iron so it was brown and crispy just in the middle. The second waffle I over filled, so not so crispy, but by my third waffle (I doubled the recipe so I could use a small can of tuna) I had the method down pat and loved the results. It may sound like tuna” over kill”, but I made tuna salad mix to put on top of the tuna chaffle, added dill pickle and lettuce. Voila, a meal in itself. So good. I highly recommend this recipe!

    This is a delicious, delectable, palate pleasing recipe that is also very simple.

    I doubled the recipe and used a whole 5 oz. can of solid albacore (well drained) and used egg whites from a carton. I also followed the optional step of adding the teaspoon of cheese to the mini dash before spreading the tuna mixture, as well as adding a teaspoon of cheese on top before closing the lid. Absolute perfection.

    I find myself thinking about this recipe randomly through my days’ activities. I will be making these tuna melts for the rest of my days. Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating this recipe and sharing it with the world!
