Keto Copy Cat Blooming Onion Chaffle Sticks with Dip

When my friend Shari Weiner shared this keto Onion Chaffle recipe with me, we immediately thought of the Blooming Onion appetizer at that famous steakhouse.  You know, the one with the amazing dip.

But, assuming you shared it equally with 3 friends, that Outback appetizer would be 488 calories and 31 carbs! 

But if you share this recipe of Keto Blooming Onion Chaffle Sticks with 3 low carb friends, then you would be consuming 163 calories with only 3 carbs. Quite a good savings! And they are crunchy and delicious with a sweet burst of Vidalia onion!

My son was visiting with his friend when I made these and between them it was gone in literally seconds.  

Wait, are Onions OK on Keto?

Honestly, I don’t know why onions get such a bad rap in the keto groups.  Sure they have carbs, but nobody eats a whole onion.

Because of their intense flavor, we tend to eat them in small enough quantities that the carbs can easily fit into most keto and low carb plans.

A thick slice of onion (which made about 10 big onion rings) is what I used in this recipe and that contains only about 5 net carbs!

(Printable Recipe Card is below)

For the Keto Blooming Onion sticks:

  • Eggs
  • Part skim mozzarella cheese
  • About 10 big onion rings from a Vidalia or other sweet onion

For the Smoky Dip:

  • mayonnaise
  • sugar free ketchup
  • horseradish
  • smoked paprika (or plain paprika and liquid smoke)
  • Tabasco or other hot sauce
  • Garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, salt and pepper

You will also need either a mini waffle maker or a full size waffle maker.  I have both and use them equally, but if there’s a crowd, you can’t beat the efficiency of the full size model!
