Ingredients:

Kitchen Needs:

  • Countertop small oven or regular oven
  • Nonstick saute pan
  • Knife
  • Cutting board

Step One: Gather and Warm Up Ingredients + Slice the Avocado

Preheat the oven to 375F.
Gather all your previously cooked and prepared ingredients. See the recipes for the baked egg bites, how to meal prep bacon, and these fluffy keto 'cloud' breads.

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. Cut 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 with a spoon into a small plate, sprinkle with a dash of lemon juice to decrease oxidation, and cover with a damp paper cloth towel until needed. Repeat with all 4 quarters. 

In a foil-lined baking sheet, set 8 keto 'cloud' breads and 4 cooked bacon strips. Set a timer for 3 minutes and reheat items in preheated oven. Add 2-3 extra minutes if necessary and remove breads if they are getting too toasty. Keep warm.

Step Two: Sear Egg Bites and Build Sandwich

Meanwhile, heat 4 teaspoons of coconut oil in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Once the oil is beginning to smoke and slightly shimmering, 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 breads should be warm. Remove from oven if you haven't done so already.

Time to build your sandwich. 

In your working station, line up the bottom 4 keto breads 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 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 to make your breakfast meal prep a no-brainer, then my suggestion is to build the sandwiches without the avocados and without warming everything up. You can simply build the sandwiches and store them for your meal prep. Add the avocado in the morning or night prior to consuming them. Also feel free to warm each sandwich in a countertop oven while you are getting ready.

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 one week.

Description

This macronutrient balanced breakfast sandwich is ideal for your ketogenic needs and only takes a few minutes to make once you have all your ingredients ready. Use this recipe as a blueprint and add or take away any personal dietary preferences.

Ingredients

  • 8 keto ‘cloud’ breads (see recipe)
  • 4 baked bacon strips (if desired, use turkey bacon)
  • 4 egg bites (see recipe)
  • 4 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 avocado, sliced lengthwise into quarters
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375F. Gather all your previously prepared ingredients. See the recipes for the baked egg bites, how to meal prep bacon and these fluffy keto 'cloud' breads.
  2. Slice your avocado by cutting the fruit down the middle vertically. Remove the pit carefully, and create quarters halving each avocado half. Slice lengthwise from left to right to create thin-long pieces of avocado, and scoop out from the skin. Repeat with all four avocado quarters.
  3. On a foil-lined baking sheet, arrange 8 keto 'cloud' breads and 4 cooked bacon strips. Set a timer for 3 minutes and reheat items in the preheated oven. Add 2-3 extra minutes if necessary and remove pieces of bread if they are getting too toasty. Keep warm. Don't overcook the bacon.
  4. Meanwhile, heat 4 teaspoons of coconut oil in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat. Once the oil is beginning to smoke and slightly shimmering, 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.
  5. Build your sandwiches by lining up 4 pieces of bread in your work station. Add 1/4 seasoned avocado for each, and place 1 egg bite on top of each avocado-bread. Break or cut each bacon in half and top the two-halves of bacon on top of each keto egg bite. Top the sandwich with the other bread cloud and serve immediately.

Notes

  • Use this recipe as your guide to making keto sandwiches. Add or take away anything to fit your preferences and lifestyle needs.
  • If you are not serving these immediately there's no need to warm the bread or the bacon. Also, don't add the avocado if you are meal prepping these ahead of time.
