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

  2. Serious Keto Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:32 pm

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

  3. Lori Dupuy Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:45 pm

    I'm actually having a MONTE CRISTO for lunch today. I used a basic chaffle recipe….yumo!

  4. Didi1770 Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:46 pm

    Hi Steve. Mmmmmmm I love both. Awesome video.

  5. Lucy Roy Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:47 pm

    Next on list of chaffles to try is pork rind dust by Pork King Good.

  6. FitAngie Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:50 pm

    How wonderful 😍😍

  7. Art By Katy Cain Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    Looks like dinner tonight!

  8. Patricia Muller Posted on September 11, 2019 at 1:53 pm

    Yeah! Love these as we miss sandwiches. Love the crunch. Keep up the good work!

  9. Lori Dupuy Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:02 pm

    Can you use the basic chaffle recipe in the griddle?

  10. bobby sutton Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:06 pm

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

  11. jin joo Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    These look perfect! But why do my chaffles stick to the top side and be pulled apart? 😢

  12. Pepe Silvia Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:22 pm

    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!

  13. scott needham Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    Definitely gonna try this I made pulled pork bbq Sammie’s last gonna try to send pictures

  14. KCCAT5 Posted on September 11, 2019 at 2:49 pm

    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

  15. William Fleming Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    how does your swiss not have holes in it? is it real swiss? also next video idea Philly cheese steak and french dip!

  16. TeamDaveAndMon Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    This looks great 🙂

  17. Erich Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:18 pm

    Love what you do. Don;t stop. Keep going! Bring back some family. Ignore the haters! You gonna make it bra!

  18. Harry Stamas Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    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!

  19. Gina Fumi Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Oh my! You’ve done it now! Keto is unstoppable! Thanks for sharing 🥰

  20. Marcelle Costanza Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:31 pm

    I have GOT so stop watching cooking videos on days I am fasting! LOL!!

  21. Lee Gauss Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    That looks yummy they both are great

  22. HugeInJapan Posted on September 11, 2019 at 3:54 pm

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

  23. BusTop Ninja Posted on September 11, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    Nom nom! I use KetoConnect's mug mix a lot. Thanks dude…love your voice!

  24. Be Lattin Posted on September 11, 2019 at 4:17 pm

    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. 😋

  25. Gandor Posted on September 11, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    Love your video's, short and to the point. Got my Dash mini this morning and had my first Chaffle.

  26. Leah Posted on September 11, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    New sub here…..I'm excited to try your recipes. Thank you, have a very blessed day 😊😊😊

  27. vHatch 37 Posted on September 11, 2019 at 5:04 pm

    That Cubano with the crispy cheese on the outside looks fire!

  28. boncoon Posted on September 11, 2019 at 5:27 pm

    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

  29. Michelle Martini Posted on September 11, 2019 at 5:38 pm

    Oh how I miss grilled ham and cheese sandwiches 🥪 I think I need a chaffle machine!

  30. Casey Bavera Posted on September 11, 2019 at 5:43 pm

    Those both look great!!!

  31. Crafty Stash Posted on September 11, 2019 at 6:17 pm

    Yes Steve….my favorite 😀😀

  32. Discovering Keto Posted on September 11, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Ruben looks great but I think I would heat up the corned beef first.

  33. Patti Gonzales Posted on September 11, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    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!!!

  34. Leah Posted on September 11, 2019 at 7:37 pm

    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????

  35. Bobbie Morton Posted on September 11, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    with that soothing voice you should really be on the radio! A Serious Keto spot on a local radio station?

  36. belizeguy Posted on September 11, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    Excellent! I can't wait to try these! Thanks

  37. TheCaptnChunk Posted on September 11, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    You aren't concerned with the added sugar and vegetable oils in the thousand island dressing?
