Calculating Your Keto Carb Count

The “bread slices” are gluten free and based on a whipped cooked egg recipe. Here are a few ideas on how you can make multiple different keto sandwiches:
- Use sausage patties to make a sausage and egg sandwich
- Add cheddar cheese to the top of the egg bites for a cheesier version, and extra fat
- Add wilted spinach, sliced tomatoes and some avocado to add fiber
- Skip the egg bites and add scrambled eggs between the ‘bread slices’ with some Sriracha
- Add your favorite toppings and keto condiments to add extra flavor
Though there are three components to be made for this recipe, each item can be made ahead of time so that when it comes time to assemble each sandwich, the only thing to do is assembling the sandwich, reheating, and enjoying it.

How to Make a Simple Keto Breakfast Sandwich
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes
Servings: 4 servings
- Countertop small oven or regular oven
- Nonstick saute pan
- Cutting board
Step One: Gather and Warm-Up Ingredients + Slice the Avocado
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Slice your avocado by cutting the fruit down the middle vertically. Remove the pit carefully with the butt end of your knife and discard the pit. Divide the avocado into quarters by halving each avocado half into another halve.
Slice the avocados lengthwise still with the skin on from the left side to the right side of the avocado, cutting from the top to the bottom vertically multiple times. This should form thin long pieces of avocado.
Scoop the now sliced avocado with a spoon into a small plate, sprinkle with a dash of lemon juice, some salt and leave aside until needed. Repeat with all 4 quarters.
In a foil-lined baking sheet, set 8 keto 'cloud' bread and 4 cooked bacon strips. Set a timer for 3 minutes and reheat items in a preheated oven. Add 2-3 extra minutes if necessary and remove the bread if they are getting too toasty. Keep warm
Step Two: Sear Egg Bites
Meanwhile, heat 4 teaspoons of coconut oil in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Once the oil is beginning to smoke and slightly shimmer, add all 4 egg bites and sear for 1 minute on each side. Adjust heat as needed to avoid burning the sides. The goal is to develop a beautiful golden brown sear while reheating the egg bite from the outside to the inside.
By this time your bacon and bread should be warm. Remove from the oven if you haven't done so already.
Step Three: Build Sandwich
Time to build your sandwich.
In your working station, line up the bottom 4 keto bread in a line. Add 1/4 seasoned avocado on top of each keto bread, and place 1 egg bite on top of each avocado bread. Break or cut each bacon in half and top the now two halves of bacon on top of each keto egg bite. Top the sandwich with the other cloud bread and serve immediately.
Meal Prep Hacking
If you are making these ahead of time for your meal prep, then my suggestion is to build the sandwiches cold and leave the avocados out until you are ready to eat them. Warm the sandwich in an airfryer or countertop oven for ease, add the avocado, and enjoy.
Storing and Serving
Store these sandwiches in a deep Tupperware or airtight container. If you want to simply prepare them each morning, store all the ingredients separated and build the sandwich whenever you are ready to eat. Reheat as indicated above. Store for no more than 5 days.
