The process for this recipe is super simple when it comes to the execution.

If you'd like to add mixed greens, be my guest. If you want to take away the bacon, sure thing. Add butter or ghee. Let your creative chef juices flow.

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