Italian Sausage Sandwiches

These Italian Sausage Sandwiches are some of my favorite sandwiches! These have options to make them paleo, primal, or keto!

You have 2 options for the buns, and the best part is that both contain only 2 ingredients each!

The chaffle recipe is considered keto or primal.

The potato bun is a good option for you if you eat paleo or avoid dairy.

The chaffle recipe did NOT come from me, it’s an internet sensation right now in the keto world, and I have no idea who it originated from. The potato waffles I just adapted from several waffle recipes on pinterest. These buns are SO versatile, and I love that they fit many food plans or lifestyles you choose.

If you need a waffle maker, this is the same one I use. It’s a mini version, so they are perfectly round and in the shape of hamburger buns.

Try out my mayonnaise recipe if you’re wanting to avoid the soy and sugar in traditional mayo. It’s foolproof and super simple. It ALWAYS emulsifies and can be taken down to 2 ingredients only if desired!
