Chaffle Sandwiches – Reuben and Cuban (Cubano)

Chaffle Sandwiches – Reuben and Cuban (Cubano)


hey there it’s Steve from SeriousKeto
and in this video we’re gettin our oo-ben on but before we do that if you enjoy
low-carb cooking videos product and ingredient reviews as well as lessons
learned from my experiences with the ketogenic lifestyle and intermittent
fasting click that subscribe button down there and while you’re at it click the
bell next to it so you’re notified whenever I release a new video one of
the common questions that I get in the comments is what chaffles would you
recommend for sandwiches and two of the first requests that I got were the
Reuben sandwich that came from Sarah Clark and a Cuban or Cubano and that was
kind of triggered by a question that Kyle Walker asked so thank you guys
that’s what we’re gonna make in this video first the Reuben then the Cubano
let’s get making the Reuben typical base batter of one egg beaten
twitch will add 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella 1/4 teaspoon of caraway seeds
a tablespoon of pork rind crumbs and 1/2 tablespoon of brown mustard I use
Dusseldorf mix it up and divide into it’s been five minutes let’s see how
they look and we’ll assemble our Reuben bottom swiss sauerkraut I don’t know if
there’s an official order for all of these things I’m just trying to do it in
a way that will melt the Swiss as much as possible a couple slices of deli
corned beef and a little bit of Thousand Island dressing
now Thousand Island dressing has 2 grams of carbs per tablespoon so that’s about
as much as I want top it slice it and let’s give it a taste this is really
really good I wanted to just keep eating and eating and never tell you how good
it was that’s how good it is I think if you really like the flavor of caraway
you could easily go up to a 1/2 teaspoon of caraway on on these
I’m not a big caraway fan I like you know at the taste of caraway without
getting punched by caraway so for me quarter teaspoon right in the sweet spot
I think you could also take these and you know maybe hit them with a little
cooking spray and then put them on a griddle just to get a little bit more of
that griddled Reuben taste and that might further melt the Swiss but this is
a winner I I think going forward this will be my go-to recipe for Reuben
sandwiches so thank you Sarah for the recommendation and now for the Cubano sandwich and this
was kind of inspired by a question / comment by Kyle Walker who wanted me to
try out some different sandwiches and wanted to know if there was something
that would stand up to pulled pork and I felt this particular recipe would so
let’s get to making it we start with 1 large egg beaten to that I’m gonna add 3
tablespoons of the keto Connect microwavable bread flour give it a good
mix and for this recipe we are using the – mini griddle and we’re going to start
by adding one slice of Swiss cheese on each then we’ll put half our batter on
each side not real equal it’s been about 5 minutes
so let’s get them out we’ll start with a couple of pickle slices followed by some
deli sliced ham and yeah I know I could put on more some pulled pork and some
yellow mustard now for this sandwich I chose to do the
cheese on the outside of the bun I suppose I could have done it on the
inside or if I had some Sargento thins I think I probably could have done both I
could have made each one of these Chen cake bun things with a slice of Swiss
some batter and another slice of Swiss similar to the cheesy keto connect bread
that I did in the video that I’ll link to up here here we go this is also
really good as evidenced by the fact that I took about four bites there
before my review I just couldn’t stop now I don’t know that any keto friendly
or low carb bread is gonna get you that same sort of Cubano roll consistency I
like this I kind of enjoy having the crisp on the outside it gives it almost
sort of a panini type of a texture with a crisp on the outside and the
softer on the inside but this is a win also so two great suggestions keep them
coming and thanks for watching

  1. Funny that I got my first dislike 1 minute after posting this 5 minute video. I must have deeply disturbed someone with my intro. 😜

  2. I gotta stop watching these videos at work. SOOOO hungry now. My Chancake press will be in today. This is happening tonight.

  3. are caraway seeds the secret to a rye bread taste? Can't say i've ever used them before…..
    also, when i used to attempt low carb "reubens", in place of store bought Thousand Island, i would use mixed up Mayo/Ketchup/Relish… 1:1:1 ratio…. it's got that same type of dressing flavor….. kinda. Good enough for me, anyway. Thanks for the video!

  4. I am a native New Yorker and I've never had a Reuben in my life LOL. Although I would be interested in trying.
    I think it was because of the saltiness of The Corned Beef that I tried at one time that turns me off.

    But that Cubano looks really good

  5. So far I have not been really impressed with the desert versions of Chaffles but for sandwich or hamburger buns these thins are game changer!

  6. Two of my three favorite sandwiches on earth. This can easily be adapted for a Montecristo, the third of my absolute favorites.

  7. Have you made a sourdough yet? I prefer it for all my sandwiches and love it for the Reuben as I dislike caraway seeds. 😊 My favorite grilled cheese is a sourdough bread with a good brie. 😋

  8. Enjoyed the video and appreciate your work -which is a great help and encouragement! Hope all is well. Do you have 'before' pictures? (just curious.)
    Take care, Bonnie

  9. Ok I know this has nothing to do with this video, but I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the allulose "KNOW" sweetener. Also as it compares to Swerve? I keep seeing it and wonder if it is really as good as it seems. Love your channel and content!!!

  10. I will soon be surrounded by holiday cookies and such…..ugh, such a difficult time because I LOVE holiday cookies. Can you come up with an alternative solution for Keto????

  11. That Reuben looked really good. My sister told me a couple weeks ago I was going to have to learn to make a Reuben on a chaffle. She said, "Don't forget the caraway seeds". LOL!

  12. I hollered at my hubby when I saw your video on these recipes! Reuben and Cuban ~ Two of our absolute FAVORITE sandwiches and you showed us how to do it KETO style…Thanks, Steve! Keep up your great work!

  13. What can be used in place of the pork rinds? I detest them. But I like the sandwiches you made. I'm sure that the caraway seeds are the best for it. Thanks for sharing!

  14. I was thinking of purchasing the flat griddle for Chancakes but I love the individual pockets that hold extra mayo and mustard and stuff!

  15. I'm really digging the different ideas. The cream cheese chaffle with Perfect Keto Salted Caramel Collagen Powder is bomb!! 🤯💣

  16. Oh yeah! I will definitely try the cuban sandwich. That Reuben looked good also. Pretty cool using 2 minis at once. Make both sides of the sandwich in half the time.

  17. If you really like thousand island dressing but are a bit scared of the carbs, try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftb3rRHraqU Oh, and the Reuben looks awesome. Gotta try that.

  18. Just tried the reuben……….couldnt put it down!  Absolute game changer for sandwiches!  Thank you for posting this video. Aa a side note: i swapped the mozza out for italian blend and cold cut out for boil in bag so it was nice and hot to melt that swiss……..yum!

  19. Walden Farms Thousand Island is AMAZING, and like ALL their dressings, it's ZERO EVERYTHING! 😁 AND, if you mix equal parts Walden Farms Thousand Island, Walden Farms Honey Dijon, and a keto friendly mayo, like Trader Joe's, it's the perfect substitute for Miracle Whip! This blend works great on fish almondine, in Cole slaw, in deviled eggs, and on burgers! Add a little pickle relish, and you have a pretty convincing tartar sauce!😁💖

  20. video idea: I wonder if we are able to make e a bunch of chaffles and freeze them, then toast them for use in the future? convenient and I have a large waffle maker so I find it easier to make 4 chaffles at a time, which works great for 2 people (the number of chaffle eaters in my home)…maybe try freezing some and see what happens? I'd film it myself but it's really outside my channel's wheelhouse, thanks

  21. Great video, I made a bunch of of normal plain chaffles for a family reunion & someone brought pulled pork so I made a sandwich which was really good. I’ve also been testing chafflecakes with chaffles to see which was better for burgers since I’m mostly carnivore. Can’t go wrong with either for a burger though the chaffle holds the toppings like mayo better.
    Btw would have watched video sooner but was trying to do a long fast. But thanks for mentioning my suggestion

  22. This video inspired some experimentation. I checked out the Keto Connect recipe but a) I didn't have all the ingredients and b) I didn't want to make such a large quantity of mix. So I took out what I had in my pantry and created a bun using the Dash mini-griddle that you turned me onto: 1 egg, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, 2 teaspoons almond flour, 1 teaspoon oat fiber flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon psyllium husk power, and a couple of shakes each of garlic power and onion powder. WOW! I toasted the buns slightly and created a classic BLT with mayonnaise.

    The bun is soft with nice little air holes like real bread. There is a slight eggy/cheesy taste but nothing like the classic chaffle. The use of the griddle means no holes like you get from the Dash waffle "iron". With good bacon and fresh tomato and plenty of mayo, those tastes predominate. I'll try the flax seed flour (I think that's what Keto Connect uses) and may throw in some yeast and see what happens.

    Tonight I'm going to try this for a pizza crust but I also added some Italian seasoning.

  23. Those looked awesome! I don’t like the Caraway seeds so I’d just leave them out. But I’m so gonna make these!!!
