The keto diet is the high-fat, moderate-protein, super-low-carb craze you’ve probably read about online or heard your coworker rave about. And while it has helped countless people lose weight, the rules of what you can and can’t eat are pretty restrictive.

In general, you should aim to eat fewer than 50 carbs a day to keep your body in the fat-burning state of ketosis. The general macro breakdown is 70 to 80 percent fat, 15 to 20 percent protein, and five to 10 percent carbs. Since carbs are present in many healthy, keto-friendly foods such as leafy, nonstarchy vegetables and low-sugar fruit, it’s generally recommended to stay away from other grains and carb-heavy starches. Yes, this includes bread and all the beloved bread products. Luckily, there’s a caveat.

“While traditional bread — yes, even whole wheat and whole grain — is too high in carbohydrates to include on a ketogenic diet, there are several great low-carb bread recipes and products that can be included if you miss the occasional sandwich or roll with your meal,” registered dietitian Sarah Koenck, member of the clinical team at Virta Health, told POPSUGAR.

She noted that while the average slice of bread typically has about 10 to 20 grams of carbs, you can make bread with other low-carb ingredients such as almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk, cream cheese, and eggs. Try this keto bread recipe from Life Made Sweeter. It’s super easy and takes only 90 seconds in the microwave.

So can you nosh on store-bought bread and expect to stay in ketosis? Probably not. If you’re clamoring for a piece of store-bought bread, stick to Sola bread (nine grams of carbs per serving) and make sure it fits within your daily macro or carb allotment. But if you’re willing to get creative in the kitchen, you can enjoy low-carb toast and sandwich bread and still stay on track.

There Are Keto-Friendly Breads, Bagels, and Bars: Are They Healthy?

One of the biggest hurdles of any diet, and especially the keto diet, is a deprivation mentality. If you believe you can’t have something, you may find yourself craving it even more.

Keto “cheat” foods, proponents argue, may help you satisfy those longings while not blowing your carb budget.

“Keto-friendly versions of our favorite foods can most certainly be a part of a balanced diet,” said Amanda Maucere, a registered dietitian and nutritionist (RDN) for the Lung Health Institute.

“These foods can also help people benefit from nutritional ketosis for a longer period of time without feeling deprived of the foods they are used to eating,” she added.

That seems like a win.

But not so fast, says Maucere. You have to be attentive to what you’re eating, beyond just the net carbs you’re consuming.

“That said, the quality of the ingredients used to make these foods does matter. Just like with non-keto food products, you’ll want to look at the ingredients list to make sure the food you want to eat is made with real food ingredients,” she said. “If what you find in the ingredients list is a long list of chemicals and additives, steer clear.”

Anthony Gustin, DC, MS, the CEO and co-founder of Perfect Keto, also suggests these foods aren’t inherently bad as part of the keto diet, but you may want to avoid the ones that are highly processed.

“Studies have shown that eating highly-processed foods increases your rates of obesity, cancer, food addiction, depression, chronic inflammation, poor digestion, asthma, and allergy symptoms,” he said.

“Since a ketogenic diet — when done properly — can actually help alleviate many of these ailments, it’s counterintuitive to eat products with ingredients that can have harmful effects on your health.”

In particular, Gustin points out, keto “cheat” foods rely heavily on artificial sweeteners.

Most forms of sugar are rich sources of carbs. Artificial sweetener options have virtually no carbs, which makes them technically keto-friendly, but they don’t always get the thumbs up from doctors and nutritionists.

“One of the biggest offenders is artificial sweeteners, which, in addition to contributing to the problems I mentioned, may also raise your blood sugar levels and blood pressure, increasing anxiety and causing GI upset,” Gustin said.

Gustin explains that even if you stay in ketosis, you’re not ingesting healthy ingredients.

“All you’re doing is giving your body chemicals instead of nutrient-dense food, causing you to miss out on some of the bigger picture benefits the ketogenic diet can provide,” he concludes.

Low carb sandwich wraps bring your favorite sandwiches back to the table! They are sturdy, taste great, and have just 1 net carb each. Quick and easy, you’ll love lunch again! I’ve filled my sandwich wrap with my favorite California Club sandwich ingredients but you can make just the wraps and fill them any way you like.

For this recipe you’ll need: egg whites, hemp hearts, salt, almond flour

Plus California Club filling ingredents: alfalfa sprouts, herbed chicken breast, Monterey Jack cheese, avocado, cilantro, mayonnaise, lime

I love sandwiches. In fact, I think I began my love of sandwiches when I was age 4 or so and I learned that spooning Spaghetti-Os over a slice of Wonder Bread and topping the slurpy mound with another slice of that soft-as-a-cloud bread made a sandwich. I ate Spaghetti-Os sandwiches well into my adulthood.

Over the years I experimented and created sandwiches with all kinds of fillings – some of which worked and some that are best left forgotten. My question, long before Good Mythical Morning (warning, don’t watch if you gag easily) asked the “Will it ___?” question, was does it sandwich? And the answer is a resounding, NO. Not everything sandwiches.

Once I started low carbing I totally missed grabbing something and putting it in a sandwich for a quick way to handle hunger during my chaotic days. It’s just not the same wrapping something in lettuce leaves — like don’t ever try it with peanut butter.

Just saying.

Well, once I got this wrap perfected I was ecstatic! The wrap is sturdy enough to hold all kinds of fillings without tearing and it only takes a couple of minutes to make. Plus it doesn’t get soggy! All of that made it a win as far as I was concerned!

I’ll give you my list of fillings in the recipe but I’m not adding them to the nutrition information so that you know exactly how many carbs the low carb sandwich wraps have.

Tips for Low Carb Sandwich Wraps

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your low carb sandwich wraps! Be patient with yourself, it may take a time or two to get them just right.

  • You can make several ahead of time and put pieces of waxed paper between each low carb wrap. Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • You may substitute coconut flour for almond flour.
  • If you use ground pork rinds as a substitute for the flour you can use these on indiction.
  • You can also use the grated Parmesan in the green canister as a substitute for the almond flour – also works for induction.
  • You may add garlic, onion powder, or other herbs to flavor the low carb sandwich wraps.
  • Use a good, large nonstick omelet pan over medium heat and watch carefully.
  • Let cool a minute or two before using.

Keto Lunchbox Idea

A lot of people these days are hopping on the low-carb bandwagon. And that means when lunchtime rolls around, a lot of people are eating salad. Don’t get me wrong, I like a nice salad for lunch myself – but salad every single day can start to get a bit old.

But if you’re trying to bring a packed lunch to work, what’s the alternative? You can’t make a sandwich without bread, can you?

Actually, you kind of can – if you turn it inside out. Instead of a filling of cold cuts, cheese, and veggies between two pieces of bread, flip it around and put those cold cuts on the outside.

To see how this works, take a look at these Keto Low Carb Sandwich Lunchbox. They’ve got layers of ham, Genoa salami, pepperoni, and provolone, wrapped around a filling of lettuce, peppers, and mayo. Basically, a complete Italian sandwich, without the bread.

All you need to round out this low-carb meal is a few olives and some apple slices. Okay, those have a little bit of carbs in them, but they keep the doctor away.

Keto Low Carb Sandwich Lunchbox


  • 12 Slices Genoa Salami
  • 12 Slices Ham
  • 12 Slices Pepperoni
  • 12 Slices Provolone
  • 6 TBSP Mayo
  • Roasted peppers
  • Sliced banana peppers
  • Shredded Lettuce
  • about 40 black olives
  • 2 apples

These Keto Ham and Cheese Bites are only 1.5 net carb and great warm or cold! This is an easy keto meal prep recipe!

Two of the most popular recipes on this site are my Keto Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites and my Keto Pizza Bites. If you’ve been a reader long and you are trying a low carb diet chances are you have already tried them. I think they are so popular because they are very easy, make a large batch and are perfect for meal prep.

I got a message on Instagram last week asking if I had any varieties to share and of course I do! I made these Keto Taco Bites for my dedicated low carb website a few weeks ago and today I’m sharing this easy ham and cheese version!

What is keto?

Keto is a high fat low carb diet. When your body is in a state of ketosis it burns fat for fuel instead of carbs. The total amount of suggested net carbs can vary from person to person but generally people can reach ketosis when they have had 40-20 net carbs.

It can be difficult to find grab and go or meal prep style foods that fit this diet because so many of those go to options are full of carbs. These Keto Ham and Cheese Bites are tasty eaten warm or cold. One batch makes over 20 bites (24 for me) and they contain 1.5 net carbs each! They make a great low carb breakfast or a good lunch paired with a garden salad or other low carb side.

How do I make Keto Ham and Cheese Bites?

This recipe follows the same base I use for my other keto bites. A protein, cheese, cream cheese, eggs, baking powder and coconut flour. I get a lot of questions regarding the coconut flour. I do not notice any coconut flavor, but I suppose if you are highly sensitive you might get some hint of the flavor?

You can substitute almond flour if you wish, but it will NOT yield the best result. The bites are light and fluffy with coconut flour, they are more dense if you sub almond flour. I highly suggest making the recipe as written for the best results.

Other Easy Keto Snacks

  • Keto Chili Cheese Chips (ONE net carb per serving, life changing my friends!)
  • Keto Pizza Bites
  • Easy Keto Broccoli Cheddar Bites
  • Keto Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wrap (this one is under 4 net carbs and AMAZING!)


  • 2 cups ham, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 eggs, beaten


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Combine ham and cream cheese until completely combined.
    Add in remaining ingredients until well combined and chill 10 minutes.
    **If you skip chilling the dough they will flatten as they cook and not be nice round balls**
    Drop onto a greased baking sheet (I like to use the silicone baking mats) using a small cookie scoop.
    Bake 20-23 minutes until golden brown.
    This made 24 for me, but that will depend on the size scoop you use and how tightly you pack them.

Low-Carb Pineapple Baked Ham

Baked ham is a holiday staple that can be enjoyed by all ages. Every holiday meal of my childhood included a pristine ham, baked to perfection by my mother and grandmother. The sweet and salty flavours were perfectly balanced, and we all left the table full and happy. I still love honey ham, but including it in my diet has proven to be a challenge.

Let’s be honest—we can’t have honey ham every single night without consequence. However, we can find ways to fit it into a low-carb Keto diet for special occasions!

This low-carb pineapple baked ham is the perfect balance of flavor and nutrition, making it my family’s go-to holiday main dish. Baked hams are simple, fool-proof dishes, and this recipe leaves a ton of leftovers! You can use the remaining ham on a sandwich or you can use it to top off a tasty cobb salad!

A simple tip:

You can use a pre-seasoned ham from the grocery store, but be mindful of the ingredients. They may not be as healthy as they seem!

Let us know how this tasty meal turned out for you and your family!

  1. Combine the pineapple juice, pineapple chunks, honey, mustard, cloves, and water in a saucepan placed over medium heat.
  2. Cook the sauce mixture until the honey has dissolved (about 5 minutes). Set aside.
  3. Trim the fat off of the defrosted ham. Make shallow scores in the ham’s skin (in a diamond or criss-cross pattern).
  4. Place the ham in a roaster, and make sure that the lid is able to close completely. If the ham is too large for the roaster, then trim some excess meat off.
  5. Using a brush, spread about half (or a bit less) of the sauce mixture onto the ham. Add a half cup of water to the bottom of the roaster.
  6. Cover the ham and roast for one hour (feel free to baste the ham throughout the hour to ensure that the flavour saturates the meat).
  7. After an hour, take the ham out of the oven and drain the excess water if needed. Pour the rest of the sauce mixture over the meat. Make sure that it gets into the scored pieces of the ham.
  8. Place the pineapple rings on the ham. Feel free to get creative with this! TIP: If the pineapple rings won’t stay in place, use toothpicks to secure them.
  9. Place the ham back in the oven, uncovered for another hour or until it is browned to your liking.
  10. Take the ham out of the oven. Slice and serve. Enjoy!

This Low-carb Lettuce Wrap Sandwich is a great option for lunch and a delicious alternative to the traditional wheat wrap. It only requires few ingredients and it’s also gluten-free and Whole30!

I love lettuce wraps! They’re very healthy (if you stuff it with good ingredients for your body), fresh, flavourful, and it fits any type of diet you are following. You can add only veggies and tofu and make a gluten-free/vegan/vegetarian wrap sandwich or you can add your favourite choice of deli meat. So good!

Another reason why I love this lettuce wrap sandwich is because you can make it in just few minutes and you can use any type of spread you prefer. I often use yellow mustard because I’m addicted to it and my homemade mayo. Great combo and goes really well with deli meat! But you can use other types of spread such as cream cheese, guacamole, green sauce, hot sauce too. The options are endless here.

What is the best lettuce to make this Low-carb Lettuce Wrap Sandwich?

I’ve made this wrap sandwich with lots of different types of lettuces and for this reason I can say that all green lettuces will work such as romaine lettuce, collard and kale (without the stems), butter lettuce and Iceberg lettuce. But I think the Iceberg lettuce is the best.

In my opinion, the Iceberg holds well, it’s crunchy and crispy and it’s not very tough to eat raw like kale or collards are.

How do you roll a wrap sandwich?

I have to be honest here and say that rolling the wrap for the first time it’s not very easy and it can be tricky. However, when you make this Low-carb Lettuce Wrap Sandwich more often, it’ll become easier to roll. The most important tip is: use a parchment paper.

When you layer the lettuces on the parchment paper, it will be your base for you to roll everything together and fold the sides in as you roll. On the recipe box below, I’ll give you the step-by-step about rolling your wrap sandwich.

What do you put on a wrap?

Well you have lots of options here such as:

  1. Egg salad
  2. Tuna salad
  3. Veggies such as bell pepper, onions, cucumber and tomatoes
  4. Slices of avocado
  5. Sun-dried tomatoes
  6. Tofu
  7. Deli meat (turkey, ham, Prosciutto, mortadella, salami, and Italian sausage)
  8. Slices of roasted chicken breast
  9. Any spread of your preference such creamy avocado sauce, any sauce (but not very liquid), mustard and/or mayo (You can make this homemade mayo).

Juicy chicken. Crispy coating. Dripping with saucy goodness. Do burgers get any better?

At no additional cost to you, I may make a small commission for purchases made through links in this post.

Crispy chicken burgers are my absolute favourite when it comes to fast food.

Not that I eat fast food.

Well, there was that time a few months ago… I slunk through the joint, feeling rather guilty, especially after I inhaled a crispy chicken burger, basically without chewing.. or breathing.

Besides the guilt, it was pretty okay.

These Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers are soooo much more than ‘pretty okay’!

Not only do they have more flavour, they are completely guilt free! There isn’t a lot better than taking a naughty food and turning it into something more delicious and healthily homemade.

Having friends over?

These Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers are an excellent choice! I love to make these when I have company coming. They go great on a 90 Second Keto Bread or Low Carb Onion Buns, and I’ll buy brioche buns for my guests.

I hope you love these Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers as much as I do!

Why this recipe works

  1. Using chicken breast as opposed to ground chicken has, in my opinion, a much better texture. Plus you can get two burgers from each breast!
  2. The crushed pork rinds are ultra crunchy which makes for a perfect crust for these crispy keto chicken burgers.
  3. They are so tasty, your guests won’t know they are keto friendly!
  4. Leftover burger patties are excellent for wraps or sandwiches the next day.

Here is what you will need to make the patties for these Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers:

  • Chicken breasts – either boneless skinless or debone them yourself and remove the skin.
  • egg & water
  • pork rinds
  • parmesan cheese
  • chili powder
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper

Besides the patty, you can choose any sort of low carb bun or, they are delicious all by themselves. Further down the post are some yummy sauce ideas.

Crispy Keto Chicken Burger recipe

I love how easy it is to make a Crispy Keto Chicken Burger. Here is how to do it:

Heat your oven to 400° and line a baking sheet with a non stick baking mat or parchment paper.

Crush a 100g bag of pork rinds into a fine crumb. I find using a rolling pin really helps to get them crushed quickly and easily!

Throw the crushed pork rinds into a medium bowl with the parmesan cheese, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.

Whisk an egg with some water in a bowl or soup plate and set aside.

Take your chicken breasts and cut them in half, horizontally, so that you get 6 chicken cutlets.

With one hand, dip a chicken cutlet into the egg mixture and toss into the pork rinds without touching them with your hand. Using your other hand, toss the chicken around in the pork rinds, then place onto the baking sheet.

Repeat for all 6 pieces of chicken.

Go back and double dip the chicken into the egg mixture and pork rinds until everything has been used up. I like to just do the top of the chicken first, to make sure each piece will get double dipped.

It’s only fair, right?

Bake for around 30 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 180°.

Expert Tips

  1. Buy pork rinds in 100g bags such as the Old Dutch brand. This makes it easy to fly at the bag with a rolling pin so that those pork rinds are nice and crumbly.
  2. It’s easy to debone your own chicken breasts – I rarely buy boneless because they are so much more expensive! If you have never deboned chicken breast before, you may find this tutorial helpful.
  3. Use a digital meat thermometer! You want to make sure the internal temperature of each chicken burger reaches 180°. Uncooked chicken can contain salmonella – not a fun food poisoning, that’s for sure!

Buns and Sauce

Now that you’ve got the super yummy, ultra delicious, mouthwatering Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers, how should you enjoy them?

Low Carb Onion Buns

My go-to bun for these burgers would absolutely be a Low Carb Onion Bun, although a 90 Second Keto Bread is easy and delicious. Perhaps you have some Low Carb Bagels in the freezer? Those would be great too!

The best sauce for this Crispy Keto Chicken Burger would, hands down, be this Keto Honey Mustard. It’s seriously ridiculous. So good. Omg.

Don’t like honey mustard? You’ve gotta try this Low Carb BBQ Sauce or some Low Carb Ranch Dressing instead!

Side dishes to pair with Crispy Keto Chicken Burgers

Need a side idea? I’ve got you covered! Here are my favourite sides to pair with these low carb burgers:

  • Kale Caesar Salad with Cheese Crisps
  • Avocado Fries with Chipotle Mayo
  • Broccoli Salad with Bacon, Cheddar and Kale
  • Cauliflower Potato Salad
  • Bacon Wrapped Avocado Fries
  • Ranch Cauliflower Broccoli Salad with Bacon and Cheddar

Got a leftover Crispy Keto Chicken Burger?

I often make a full recipe just so that I can have leftovers. I love this Crispy Keto Chicken Burger recipe so much!

Here are some yummy leftover ideas:

  • Salad – Slice up a leftover keto chicken burger and add to your favourite salad for an added flavour / protein boost.
  • BBQ Wrap – Spread cream cheese on a low carb tortilla. Chop up a leftover keto chicken burger and toss with Low Carb BBQ Sauce, then place on the tortilla with some lettuce and shredded aged cheddar. Wrap up and enjoy or siran wrap for lunch the next day.
  • Eat cold, right from the fridge, dipped in some leftover Keto Honey Mustard, as quickly as you can so that no one sees you, because they already called dibs.
  • Caesar Wrap – Fry some bacon and set aside to cool. Spread cream cheese over a low carb tortilla. Chop up a leftover Crispy Keto Chicken Burger and toss with some Homemade Caesar Dressing. Place on the tortilla with parmesan cheese, lettuce and the cooled bacon. Wrap up and enjoy or siran wrap for lunch the next day.

14 Favorite Low Carb Sandwiches

Fun, Portable, Versatile!

Sandwiches are fun, portable and versatile. No low carb dieter should be without sandwiches! The best way to ensure you’re getting a sandwich in you anytime you’d like, is to have some good, trusty, low carb sandwich recipes up your sleeve, ready to go. We love packing some of these recipes away for a trip and they’re absolutely perfect for eating for lunch at work. Which one is your favorite?

Here we go, in no particular order of amazingness:

Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This is just so delicious and made out of coconut flour. A low carb and Gluten Free tasty sandwich! All of the taste and none of the guilt! Huzzah! The naming of the sandwich being grilled amuses me, being British, as for us it is fried. To our friends across the pond, it is grilled. I love the differences in a common language! I don’t care what it’s is called, it is still a lovely low carb sandwich type meal that is fried in butter!
from Divalicious Recipes

Cauliflower Bagel BLTs
Can we all agree that it’s pretty hard to improve upon a BLT? I mean, the BLT is a classic combination that just works. Smoky bacon, sweet tomatoes, a nice crunch of lettuce, some really good bread, brought together with a little mayonnaise love. An awesome sandwich, really. That being said, I’m here to kick BLT into another dimension. Ready? First off, let me introduce you to my latest obsession. Cauliflower bagels.

Breakfast Sandwiches
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!

Low-Carb Crab Melt Sandwiches
This quick and easy, low-carb crab melt sandwich recipe combines creamy, flavorful crab salad and melted cheese on a base of a portobello mushroom. These melts make a satisfying lunch or dinner.
from Simply So Healthy

Philly Cheese Steak Lettuce Wrap
I have found myself craving a Philly cheese steak sandwich tonight and so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make a recipe for it! To be honest, I’ve never been to Philadelphia or eaten an authentic one because I’m Canadian, but I’ve eaten some in Canada, or at least their version of it so I just copied the taste that I’m familiar with! Usually Philly cheese steaks are eaten in a submarine, but since I quit gluten, I decided to make it into a lettuce wrap!

The latest trend on Instagram has all been about avocado bun burgers and you know what? It’s a fabulous idea!!! I couldn’t wait to try one out for myself as they’re basically the perfect healthy fat bombs and are absolutely ideal for a low carb diet. You can make so many different versions, either for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These bad boys fill you right up so you don’t need to worry about eating anything else. The best part is that they don’t take that much time to prepare!

Keto Bacon & Egg Sandwich
A good bacon sandwich reminds me of growing up. Every Sunday morning, 10 am like clockwork, I’d smell the sweet notes of sizzling bacon wafting up the stairs. My nose would twitch and I’d stumble from my slumber all messy haired and sleepy eyed ready to take on dads infamous bacon sarnie. And whilst bread as I once knew it is now out, you can still totally enjoy this family favourite, in a new, more nutritious, low carb way.

Pork Tenderloin Fontina Sandwich
This Pork Tenderloin Fontina Grain Free Sandwich with Basil Yogurt Spread is an easy dinner that the whole family will love! Add some Delicious Mayo Free Basil Yogurt Spread on this baby with some lettuce, lean pork tenderloin and creamy fontina cheese and it’s a match made a heaven! No one will complain about sandwiches for dinner with this recipe!

Homemade Unwich – Lettuce Wrap Sandwich
The Unwich from Jimmy John’s is my absolute favorite keto friendly fast food. For those who have yet to experience an unwich, the sub shop will take any sandwich on their menu, nix the bread, and wrap all the fixings in an intricately constructed half-lettuce-half-parchment origami. Essentially, it’s a lettuce wrap sandwich that doesn’t fall apart while you eat it. I love them so much.

Loaded Jalapeño Burger
The times we do make burgers we DO NOT go easy on the toppings. It’s kind of a slippery slope. You have the perfectly medium-rare patty, which naturally needs some cheese. Oh wait, but what about the bacon… and jalapeños for some kick! Ohhhh yes, fried egg is a must. And, of course you want a little cool down from the guacamole. And, don’t forget to make it a double! That’s exactly how it goes every time.

Cucumber Cream Cheese Sandwiches
My husband’s great-aunt likes to invite the kids over every summer for a special tea party. My kids really love going for the food and snacks. One of the things that’s usually made are finger sandwiches. I especially like the ones made with olive and cream cheese. But, this year, I decided to try making one with a creamy cucumber filling. For the bread in these cucumber cream cheese sandwiches, I used the Focaccia Style Flax Bread Recipe at It has a great video to go along with the recipe on how to make it. I was able to cut the bread into 10 squares.

Low Carb Bagels
Do you miss having bagels as much as I do? I admit to being a former bread addict and bagels are a weakness of mine. Sesame bagels are a favorite, especially with bacon and scallion cream cheese like Bruegger’s Bagels makes. Mmmm.

Sausage, Egg & Cheese Low Carb Sandwich
This recipe was inspired by Rami’s love for breakfast sausage. We decided to make a low carb sandwich, breakfast style, on a low carb English muffin! We didn’t have English muffins, nor did we have breakfast sausage, but when you’ve got a craving, you can’t stop just because you’re missing half the ingredients!

Pressed Cubano Sandwiches
Smoked ham and pork tenderloin together on low carb, gluten-free sandwich bread for a delicious, healthy Cubano sandwich.
