Keto Breakfast Sandwich

I love a good Keto Breakfast Sandwich. If I could eat a breakfast sandwich every day of my life, I probably would. This may seem like an exaggeration, and maybe it is, but I simply cannot stress how much I enjoy a great-tasting breakfast sandwich. They’re so versatile, aren’t they? You can add whatever toppings you want, use buns, bread, or even bagels, the sky (or rather, the breakfast table) is the limit!

Keto Breakfast Sandwich

If you’re on a keto diet, then you may have been missing breakfast sandwiches since it can be quite tough to find good keto breakfast sandwich options. Keto breakfast ideas tend to lean away from sandwiches, bagels, and similar items, after all.

That is where this truly exceptional keto breakfast sandwich recipe comes into play. It has all the deliciousness and richness of a “regular” breakfast sandwich, but it’s keto-friendly! This recipe does use my keto everything bagel recipe, so you’ll want to check that out here or you can pick up Trader Joe’s ever-so-popular Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend.

But back to the absolute brilliance of the breakfast sandwich, because it bears repeating that breakfast sandwiches are perhaps the most ingenious breakfast invention in the past 100 years. (Except maybe frozen waffles for those ultra-lazy days.) Breakfast sandwiches are hearty, filling, and perfect if you want to start the day with lots of energy.

You can even make them as healthy (or not) as you want since they are so customizable. If you want to make this or any other breakfast sandwich healthier, just swap out a few ingredients or add in more nutritional ones. Or if you want to be extra indulgent, consider adding some rich treats to make it more tasty.

There’s something about breakfast sandwiches that feels almost—and I know this sounds strange—wholesome to me. They remind me of my first jobs, where I started picking up fast food breakfast sandwiches on the way to work; to save money, I started making my own and freezing them for the week.

Sure they didn’t have the telltale deliciousness that can only come from breakfast sandwiches practically fried in grease, but they were still amazing, and healthier, to boot. Now, breakfast sandwiches are my go-to when I want to eat something in the morning that I know is going to give me energy and help me get through the morning with gusto.

This keto breakfast sandwich not only does the trick, it hits all the right notes in terms of taste, texture, and it’s general fullness; which is exactly what I want from a breakfast sandwich. If you want, you can even make a few of these at one time and then pop them into the freezer.

If you are on a keto diet and you’ve been sorely missing breakfast sandwiches, you can finally stop fretting: just try out this great keto breakfast sandwich recipe, and don’t forget to take a look at my keto-friendly bagel recipe so you can create the “buns” for this breakfast sandwich first. Enjoy! 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1⅕ cup mozzarella cheese freshly grated or bag is fine
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • ½ tsp olive oil
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Everything but the Bagel Seasoning

How to Make a Keto Breakfast Sandwich

  • Preheat oven to 375F and prepare a sheet pan or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the almond flour, baking powder, and half a tablespoon of seasoning and mix well.
  • Add mozzarella and cream cheese to the bowl and microwave in 45-second increments until the cheese is completely melted and forms a ball of dough. Should go through 2 cycles.
  • Add the egg to the bowl and vigorously mix it or use your hands, just make sure the egg is fully incorporated into your dough.
  • You will want to make four balls of dough. Roll them each into a ball and gently push a finger through the center to make a nickel-sized hole. Place on parchment paper and repeat on the other three bagels. Make sure the bagels are two inches apart.
  • Use the olive oil and brush the bagels on top and top with the remaining seasoning.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a nice golden brown forms on top.
  • Let cool for 10-15 minutes and then enjoy!

Tips

  • When melting the cheese and cream cheese in the microwave, heat them in short 45-second bursts to prevent overheating and ensure even melting.
  • Make sure to mix the egg into the dough mixture thoroughly to achieve a uniform consistency.
  • : When placing the dough balls on the baking sheet, ensure they are adequately spaced apart to allow for even baking and prevent them from sticking together.
  • Keep an eye on the bagels towards the end of the baking time to prevent them from becoming too browned. They should be golden brown on top when done.

How to Store?

Store any leftover Keto Breakfast Sandwiches in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. To reheat, simply place them in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or until heated through.

Perfect pairing with this sandwich?

Make your Keto Breakfast Sandwich even more delicious with a creamy and energizing Bulletproof Coffee, I love this combination or a refreshing Green Smoothie can be good too. Also, some people love it with a Cream Cheese Omelette, the taste is so good with it. Also sometimes I enjoy it with Spicy Bacon Deviled Eggs.

FAQ

Can I skip the Everything but the Bagel seasoning?

Yes, you can omit the seasoning if you prefer, but it adds a delicious flavor to the bagels.

Can I use pre-shredded mozzarella cheese?

While freshly grated mozzarella cheese is recommended for best results, pre-shredded cheese can be used as a convenient alternative. Just be aware that pre-shredded cheese may contain added starches to prevent clumping.

How long do these bagels stay fresh?

These bagels can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. For longer storage, they can be frozen for up to three months.

Can I customize the toppings on these bagels?

Feel free to get creative with your toppings. Add avocado, bacon, or your favorite keto-friendly ingredients to customize your breakfast sandwich to your liking.
