Chaffle Buns

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

For the Burgers

  • 80/20 Ground Beef
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Jalapeno Popper Filling

  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 fresh jalapeño, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


For the Chaffle Buns

  1. Combine the eggs, shredded cheese, almond flour, baking powder in a mixing bowl until a thick batter forms.
  2. Heat a mini waffle maker according to the directions. Pour the batter in the waffle maker (a scant 1/4 cup) be sure not to overfill (recipe makes 6 waffles).
  3. Cook the waffles about 3 minutes, or until steam stops emitting.

For the Jalapeno Popper Filling

  1. Combine the cream cheese, chopped jalapeno and shredded cheese. Divide the filling into three equal portions and set aside.

For the Burgers

  1. Combine the ground beef, sauce, garlic, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and combine with your hands, being sure that you really work in the seasonings evenly.
  2. Split the mixture into 6 equal, thin patties about 1/4 inch thick. Spread the filling over the center of one burger patty, top it with the other patty and press the edges to seal.
  3. Season the outside of the burger with salt and pepper. 

How to grill a burger:
Heat a grill to high heat (400 degrees F). Place the prepared burger patties directly on clean, preheated grill grates.

Cook 4 minutes, flip and cook an additional 3-4 minutes. Check the patty for your desired doneness, and remove from the grill.

How to cook a burger in a cast iron skillet:
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot add 1 tablespoon salted butter and tilt the pan so the butter covers the bottom of the pan.

Add the prepared patties to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes, flip when the burger is nicely browned on the bottom. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes until it has reached your desired tenderness.

Air Fryer Burgers
Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees. Add the burger patties to the preheated air fryer and fry 5 minutes, flip and fry an additional 5-6 minutes.
