How To Make A Keto Breakfast Sandwich
It’s very easy to make a low-carb breakfast sandwich at home in a sandwich press maker.
Step 1: choose your keto bread
First, choose the keto bread recipe you want to use. You have a few options based on the time you want to spend in the kitchen and your food allergies.
Pick the recipe that matches your preference below, or buy store-bought keto bread at the store.
For a quick and easy bread, make a 90-second keto bread following one of the recipes below:

They all slice perfectly to make a delicious breakfast sandwich low-carb recipe.
Step 2: sandwich filling
Next, choose the keto sandwich filling you want to add to your breakfast sandwich.
As a general rule, to make a fulfilling breakfast keto sandwich, you must pick 1 or 2:
- Keto protein – the best options are:
- slice of cheese
- Chicken or turkey
- Firm tofu
- Keto-friendly vegetables – the best low-carb vegetables for sandwiches are:
- Baby spinach leaves
- Gherkins or dill pickles
- Keto-approved fat
- Butter or olive oil or coconut oil – perfect to spread on bread and toast the sandwich.
Step 3: fill and toast
Now that you selected all the ingredients for your low-carb sandwich, it is super easy to assemble.
First, spread butter on the outside of both slices of keto bread – these sides are going to be toasted in a skillet or in the sandwich press. Set aside.
To make a bacon and egg sandwich, as seen in my picture, you need:
- Keto bread
- Cheddar cheese
- Mayonnaise or hot sauce or sauce you love
- Baby spinach leaves
- Salt and pepper
Cook the bacon in the skillet until fried and crispy on both sides. Set it aside on a plate.
Next, cook the egg in the skillet in the bacon grease until the white egg is crispy.
Cover with a lid, turn the skillet over medium heat, and set aside until the egg yolk is half cooked. This is optional, but it sets the egg yolk slightly and makes it easier to hold in a sandwich.
Next, top up the first bread slice with a layer of cheese, followed by meat, vegetable, and cheese, and repeat to add more if desired.
To make a vegetarian sandwich, simply add some of these ingredients :
- Protein: fried egg or, if vegan, use fried mushrooms or firm tofu slices.
- Fat: cheese or if vegan keto, use vegan cheese or avocado.
- Keto vegetable – spinach, cucumber, olives, tomatoes.
