Keto Teri Avocado Chaffle Burger


It’s crazy to think that we’re now nearing 1 year since the launch of LCA and started this journey!  And with us now approaching 300 recipes, we realized that we never released a recipe for an American style low-carb/keto burger!  So with that, we’ll be sharing one of our favorite fusion burger today, the Keto Teri Avocado Chaffle Burger!

We’ve always wanted to create a burger recipe, but couldn’t think of good bun alternatives.   Sure, there are your lettuce wraps and low-carb/keto bread recipes, but they just seemed like a lot of work and what we were looking for is something that really replicated the ‘texture’ of a nicely grilled bun for any low-carb/keto burger we did.

So enter the ‘chaffle‘!  By no means did we invent the chaffle, but we did create our own version of it to fit the ‘Asian’ flavor palate!  For those of you that have not tried making a chaffle or have never heard of it, a chaffle means cheese + waffle.  It’s a mixture of just cheese and egg cooked in a waffle iron for a few minutes and viola, you have yourself a very versatile bun alternative for all kinds of burgers!

The meat patty we use is a pretty basic blend, but combine that with some slices of avocados and our low-carb/keto teriyaki sauce sandwiched between these chaffles and you’ll have yourself a pretty darn good low-carb/keto burger!  It’s full of flavors, and hard to beat at only ~4g of net carbs per burger!

On a closing note, this recipe will only yield enough teriyaki sauce for the burgers, but if you’re interested in making more and storing it in the fridge, use this Teriyaki Sauce recipe instead.   We also include 2 ways to cook the patty, one on the grill (our preferred way) and on the stove top for those that doesn’t have a BBQ grill.

The special ingredients you will need to make this sauce are Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit, Soy Sauce and Xanthan Gum (to thicken the sauce).  Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  You can purchase everything else on Amazon or a combination of local Asian and specialty supermarkets.

Note – If you are preparing multiple servings, we would recommend using 2 Dash Mini Waffle Maker simultaneously to reduce the cooking time.

Now, if you’re ready, let’s chaffle!

4) Pour Unflavored Pork Rinds into a food processor and pulse until ground into very fine crumbs.  You can also use your hands to crush the pork rinds if you don’t have a food processor.  You should end up with ~1/8 Cup.  Note – Skip this step if you are using Pork Panko.

6) Take ~1/2 of the mix and throw from one hand to another while gently cupping the mix with the palm and hand forming a ball.  Place the ball onto a plate and press down on it with the palm of your hand to form a patty.  The patty should be around 1/4 inch thick.  Afterwards, take your thumb and gently press and make an indent in the middle of the hamburger patty.  This ensures the hamburger will retain it’s shape during the cooking process (otherwise it will expand upwards).
