One of the reasons many people turn to fast food (aside from it being a quick, cheap meal) in the morning is for the breakfast sandwiches. Obviously those quick meals are not low carb-friendly, but I am here to say you can still enjoy breakfast sandwiches while eating low carb foods. It may not be as fast to make these and eat them fresh, but you could probably batch-cook several of the bread halves, store them in the fridge for a few days, and then put them together fresh each morning. These are delicious and very versatile!
In a large mixing bowl I beat two of the eggs with the olive oil until combined. To that I added the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, parmesan cheese, cheddar jack cheese, salt, and pepper. I mixed all the ingredients together until it was a dough-like consistency.
I filled my Wilton Donut Pans with the dough by scooping it into a Ziploc bag, cutting one corner off, and squeezing the dough into the shallow pans. This mixture will actually make 8 halves total, enough for 4 sandwiches when put together. I put some dried onion on two, left two plain, and sprinkled black and white sesame seeds on four other halves. It’s up to you how you flavor the bread, but they were all delicious. I baked these for 20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through, then let cool a few minutes.
As the bread was baking, I melted butter in a large pan over medium heat and fried 4 eggs, seasoning them with salt and pepper. I prefer a runny yolk, so these cooked about 2-3 minutes per side. I also cooked four slices of bacon in the microwave for about 5 minutes until crispy, and let them cool slightly.
I put one half of a slice of both havarti and spicy pepper American cheese on the bottom of each sandwich and topped the cheese with a slice of bacon. I put them back in the oven for 5 minutes to let the cheese melt. To finish the sandwiches, I put the fried egg on top of the bacon and covered it with another bread piece. The gooey cheese, crisp bacon, fried egg, and sturdy bread make this the perfect breakfast sandwich on a low carb diet. You could use sausage patties instead of bacon or add spinach and onions for other breakfast options, too! Changing up the cheese would also bring new flavors to these sandwiches, making them completely customizable to your tastes.
