Apparently they are the latest thing taking the low carb world by storm! I'm on a low carb Facebook group and everyone is raving about them. Essentially they are a version of the father pizza dough made in a waffle maker. ( and therevare kots of different verdions, some with almond or coconut flour, some with mayonnaise etc). I tried one the other day but cooked it in my sandwich maker and it was pretty nice. I've since gone and bought a waffle maker ( of course) so I can make them properly, but wondered if anyone had tried them and what did you think of them?

Sounds amazing ! not sure if it is worth the investment in a waffle maker however.

I haven't a waffle maker but thought I'd try the batter and fry it. It was ok. Needed less cheese and was a bit over cooked. I mad 2 small rounds and made it up like a bacon sandwich. I think I preferred the pancakes that I've made before (have still put a waffle maker in my amazon wishlist lol)

Also the recipe I used had almond flour in it so wasnt eggy

DH makes them if I've made waffles for breakfast. He likes them. The rest of us (who are not low carb) aren't impressed.

What does half a cup of cheese equal in proper measurements 🤣

2 eggs, 35g of grated mozzarella and a teaspoon of psyllium husk then add whatever else you want.

For sweet ones I add a tiny bit of stevia and cinnamon. They're lush!!

These sound amazing. I wonder if they’d work in a toastie machine?
