Grain-Free Low-Carb Waffles
Our Grain-Free Waffles from our original book, Always Hungry?, are a crowd favorite. Best of all, they can be served in so many different ways. Sweet, savory, on their own, or as a sandwich. We designed the recipe to create a crispy waffle that is as versatile as it is delicious. You can even make them into pancakes if you don’t have a waffle maker. However, what if you’ve got a craving for a soft, fluffy bun like a you’d have with a hot dog or to make a strawberry shortcake?
Whether you’re enjoying a savory waffle sandwich (recipes HERE) or a sweet, fluffy pancake with fruit sauce, we want you to have what you need.
Homemade “Hot Dog Buns”? Count us in!
So lately, I’ve been adjusting the waffle recipe to make a soft, fluffy low-carb pancake that can be used in a variety of ways. And, most important, my son wanted a hot dog. So I got in the kitchen and started creating.
I wanted something that was soft and fluffy like a hotdog or brioche roll – but thinner and easier to make. So, I tweaked the batter to make it fluffier, cooked it as a savory pancake, and served it as a hotdog bun for dinner. The result was a WIN!
Hot Dog Bun
I stuffed each pancake “hot-dog” with with a grass-fed beef Polish sausage, mustard, and sauerkraut – absolutely delicious.
Soft Sandwich Bun
The next day, I filled them with pastrami, lettuce, tomato, and pickles to make a pastrami sandwich.
Strawberry Shortcake Parfait
For dessert, I created a Strawberry Shortcake by layering the pancakes in a glass parfait cup. I interspersed the layers with whipped cream and strawberry sauce from the original waffle recipe Always Hungry? page 223.
