Breakfast sandwiches are Matt’s all-time favorite food. When we first started dating we would make them every weekend. We would shop for some fresh ingredients on Saturday morning, including some freshly baked sourdough bread and make the ultimate breakfast sandwiches! Going keto has not stopped that tradition for us. We have created a perfect, yet Easy Keto Breakfast Sandwich for you to indulge in this weekend.
What are Keto Breakfast Sandwiches?
Ever have a craving for something comforting, hot, savory and of course breakfast-appropriate? This skillet bread recipe might be what you’re looking for.
You don’t need to miss out on sandwiches on a keto diet. Unlike conventional high-carb recipes, this low carb breakfast is gluten free, suitable for a keto diet and is made with coconut flour, which is usually cheaper to buy than almond flour.
Easy to Make
Don’t worry – this recipe is just as delicious as the original and super easy to make, with a cook time of only 12 minutes total time. You’ll have no excuse to skip breakfast now! Plus, you can even make the bread in the microwave. It doesn’t get easier than that.
So Many Flavor Possibilities
While we offer suggestions for toppings in our recipe, you can even customize your own fillings, including sausage patties, extra egg and of course, cheese.
Sweet or savory? It’s up to you – why not add berries and whipped cream for a high tea experience?
This recipe is a low carb keto favorite not just because of the flavor, but the amazing nutrition. You just can’t beat this for a delicious gluten free bread that’s low in carbs and high in protein!
The nutritional information for this recipe is as follows:

Who knew a bread recipe could be so low carb?
Modifying to Suit Your Diet
This recipe can easily be tweaked based on your preferences and requirements. If you want to increase the protein and fat you can add fillings like egg, sausage and cheddar cheese.
If the calories are a bit high, you can always have just one egg as a topping, or even go for one slice over two without worrying that you’ll miss the egg sandwich experience altogether.
Got nut allergies? No problem – this recipe doesn’t use any almond flour, but they’re still nice and fluffy like bread thanks to the baking powder. However, if you don’t use baking powder, your slices may be more flat and dense.
Low Carb Bread Options
While many recipes (including this one) include a skillet option, Matt loves to start his keto breakfast sandwich off with an easy mug bread. Less hassle and clean up. However, my preferred route would be baking a fresh loaf of keto bread, slicing it up and toasting some to get the sandwich ball rolling.
If you like to do things like me, we’ve got some great low carb bread recipes for you to try:
The best part about baking a keto friendly loaf of bread is you can pre-slice it and store it in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for up to one month, making keto breakfast sandwiches an every-meal possibility!
The best part about this recipe is the flavor combinations are endless. From eggs to cheese, there are a tonne of different keto-friendly additions to the bread base that not only taste delicious but will keep those net carbs low. You can even bring the heat by adding some hot sauce!
Keep It Simple
Matt is a simple guy. Nothing wrong with that, just his style. From clothing to sandwiches, he’s minimal in how he presents it. If you want to keep it simple like Matt (or you could also say classic), all you really need to complete this delicious keto breakfast sandwich is a couple of layers of bacon, egg and cheese. You can even drizzle on some low-carb maple syrup and have yourself a homemade McDonalds McGriddle minus the carbs and processed ingredients!
Get A Little Wild
This section is dedicated to my “over the top” low carb keto sandwich lovers, and who better than to write this than me. As a lover of extra toppings and fillings, I must say: going simple just doesn’t make sense to me.
Your Keto Breakfast Sandwich already has the basics: bacon, eggs and cheese. But what if you could increase flavor, texture and the degree to how satisfying this low carb bread sandwich could be? No one’s going to say no to that.
If you want to get just a little wild you could opt for some sliced avocado, tomato and onion. This is a great option for lunch, especially one that’s portable and can be eaten on the go. Personally, I like to go crazy so I would definitely spread some mayo on my toasted bread and use a couple of different kinds of cheese (especially cheddar cheese). Now, that’s a low carb masterpiece.
