2020 gracefully passed with all the negativity, bad vibes, drama, and some memorable moments we shared, but guess what we’ve still got on… Yup, all that extra fat from the carb binge last month.

I’ve gone on a low-carb diet, so I made something that’s delicious as well as carb-conscious. I thought to share with you – 3 Easy Cheesy Keto Recipes.

  1. Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread
  2. Keto Pizza Chaffle
  3. Keto Jalapeno Popper Chaffle

If you’re a proponent of the keto lifestyle, you’re gonna love these recipes. Oh, and if you’re one of the many people that got a new air fryer and waffle iron for Christmas, you need to make these yourself!

If you don’t have an air fryer or waffle iron, I highly recommend them. You can probably even find small ones for relatively cheap.

These amazing appetizers are cheesy gooey delicious and suitable for any time and place. You’d find yourself making them again and again. What’s even better is that there are super easy and quick to make.

Ingredients Needed to Make The 3 Easy Cheesy Keto Recipes

These recipes do not call for out-of-the-ordinary ingredients. If you look in your pantry and fridge, you’d find a few of the ingredients needed. Here is a list of all that’s needed:

For the Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread:

– Mozzarella cheese, shredded
– Parmesan cheese, shredded
– Egg
– Garlic powder to taste

For the Keto Pizza Chaffle:

– A can of Tomato puree
– Oregano
– Basil
– Mozzarella cheese
– Pepperoni
– Bacon strips
– Red onion rings
– Crushed red pepper to taste
– Pizza seasoning to taste
– Cooking spray

For the Keto Jalapeno Popper Chaffle:

– Italian cheese, shredded
– Jalapeno rings
– Bacon strips

How to Make The Cheesy Keto Recipes

You’d need an air fryer and waffle iron for these recipes. Let’s go!

Starting with the Cheesy Keto Garlic Bread. 

Plug in the air fryer and set it to 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Into a bowl, add the mozzarella and parmesan cheese, crack in the egg, and drizzle garlic powder to taste (as much as you want). Combine by mixing with a fork.

Line the air-fryer basket with parchment paper before adding the cheesy mix. Use a spatula to shape it into a circle. Lock in the air fryer and let your cheesy garlic bread cook.

While the garlic bread is cooking, move on to the Keto Pizza Chaffle. 

Make the pizza dipping – Add a can of tomato puree into a deep pot on medium heat. Season it with oregano, basil, and red pepper. Stir until it begins to simmer. Let it down after 5 minutes.

Grease the waffle iron. Spread the mozzarella cheese, arrange the pepperoni right at the middle and sprinkle some pizza seasoning.

Add onion rings in the middle of your pizza, top it off with more cheese, and secure the waffle iron. Leave it to cook for 5 minutes. Use a kitchen tong to carefully take it out once it’s ready.

Take out the cheesy keto garlic bread once it’s ready and serve it on a plate.

Move on to the Keto Jalapeno Popper Chaffle.

Grease the waffle iron again. Add the Italian cheese to cover the entire surface area of the waffle iron.

Arrange the jalapeno rings right in the middle, add a few bacon strips, and top it off with more cheese. Secure the waffle iron and leave it to cook for 5 minutes.

Once all 3 delicious appetizers are ready, serve them with your favorite dipping and drinks.
