It’s like you fell asleep and woke up in food heaven when you discover how to make Low Carb Waffle Burgers.
This could possibly be the epitome of food porn if you ask me.
Low Carb Waffle Burgers
Waffle burgers really seem to be the biggest thing right now.
Actually, it seems as if just about anything waffle is pretty popular too. However, whatever waffle is popular at the moment, they all seem to have something in common. They are made with a waffle serving as the bread.
I have always wondered what it is about the waffle that makes it so special as a ‘bread’
Besides being something new and different, they are also big. People seem to like big when it comes to appreciating the idea of food. Also, because the waffle is big, it is also very filling when used in place of bread. Hence, the result is a fantasy built on the idea of a waffle being part of a sandwich. At least it was fantasy in the case of this waffle burger.
As mentioned, these are Low Carb Waffle Burgers
You may be thinking that would mean that we are making our waffles low carb. Well, the good news is that we are. As long as you have a waffle maker, you can use a low carb baking mix to make your waffles. The low carb baking mix can be found on Amazon.Carbquick is a baking mix that I use a lot when I am in the kitchen.
As I mentioned, you will need a waffle maker.
You can find a good selection of waffle makers at good prices on Amazon. I am using a Belgium style waffle maker for this recipe because it makes a large round waffle that just seems to look more impressive when served.
The burgers that you use are your choice.
They should be precooked as directed prior to assembling your waffle burger. I am using a couple of turkey burgers in this recipe that were actually left over from the night before. This particular burger was made for my son who can be a hearty eater 99.99999999% of the time. By the way, this did fill him too 🙂 .
The recipe for Low Carb Waffle Burgers
What you will need to make this:
- Greek Yogurt- 1/3 cup
- Water- 1/4 cup
- Vanilla Extract- 1 tsp
- Vegetable Oil- 1 tablespoon
- Low carb baking mix- 1 1/4 cup (see post for details on mix)
- Sugar Alternative- 1 tablespoon equivalent
- Burgers precooked- 3-4 depending on how many burgers desired per sandwich.
- Toppings as desired- such as bacon bits, cheese etc.
How to make this.
- Prep your waffle maker for nonstick and then plug it in to preheat.
- In mixing bowl, whip your egg until fluffy.
- When egg appears fluffy (could take a few minutes of whipping) mix in the yogurt, water, vanilla and vegetable oil.
- Now mix in the baking mix and sugar alternative to your batter. If the batter seems to be too thick, add a bit of water a teaspoon at a time until you reach a waffle batter consistency that you prefer.
- Make the waffles as directed by the manufacturer.
- Allow each waffle to cool enough to be able to hold it’s shape. 3-5 minutes should be good.
- Assemble your burger using your pre-made burgers and desired toppings.
Oddly enough, we sell a lot of Belgium Waffles at my restaurant.
We have yet to do something fun like this with them however. I suppose we should experiment in the near future though 🙂
