Open Face Breakfast Sandwich

I like breakfast any time of day.  This is especially true if breakfast includes bacon. Before keto, I would make these ah-mazing breakfast sandwiches with english muffins, eggs, cheese, and bacon.  So when I found some low carb bread, my first thought was “I can have breakfast sandwiches again!”

Now, the bread I found (Ener-G Light Brown Rice Loaf) ended up being itty bitty (my iPhone is bigger) and a little bit dry, but I crisped it up in some butter and it got the job done.  I’m not gonna complain about bread with 6 net carbs per slice.  Once that bread is topped with mayo, cheese, guacamole, bacon, and an over medium egg, I will definitely be too busy eating to complain.

Recipe:

Servings: 1

What you need:

  • 1 slice Low carb bread (I used Ener-G Light Brown Rice Loaf)
  • 2 strips bacon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp guacamole
  • 1/2 Tbsp mayo (optional)
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 1/2 Tbsp butter

What you do:

  1. Cook the bacon using whatever method you want.
  2. Butter the slice of bread and fry in a small pan.  Once both sides begin to brown, put mayo on one side and top with the cheese.  Cover the pan so the cheese melts.  When the cheese is melted, remove the bread from the pan.
  3. In the same pan, add some of the bacon drippings or some more butter and fry the egg.
  4. Top the bread with the guacamole, the bacon and the egg.
  5. Eat it!

This can get kinda messy. I used a fork and knife because I’m a lady (just kidding, I had class and didn’t want to get stuff on my clothes and have to change).

Coconut Chocolate Fat Bombs

Imagine: It’s 5PM and you’re hungry for something pretty big. You look at your meals for the day and realize you’ve eaten most of your carbs AND protein for the day! Oh no! What can you eat to satisfy your hunger without going over your daily carb and protein allowance? The answer is: a fat bomb.

Fat bombs are a very high fat, low carb, low protein snack that can keep you going without knocking you out of ketosis. So while the word “fat bomb” can be a little concerning, fat bombs are in fact very good for a Keto dieter. These bad boys contain about 4g net carbs and a whopping 23 grams of fat per serving. They are about 230 calories each. You can adjust these as you plese by including more or less coconut oil and more or less almond butter and chocolate.

Coconut Chocolate Keto Fat Bombs

What you need:

Filling

  • 3 C unsweetened shredded coconut (I used 1/2 a package)
  • 8 oz Raw Coconut Butter
  • 5 tbs coconut oil
  • 5 tbs Almond Butter (optional)
  • 4-5 packets truvia

Topping

  • 3 oz very dark chocolate (80% cacao or higher)
  • 5 tbs Heavy Whipping cream
  • 2-3 packets truvia (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

What to do:

  1. Grease a 9 x 9 pan (or whatever you’d like to set the fat bombs in).
  2. In a saucepan, heat up the coconut butter, coconut oil, coconut, and almond butter until texture is melted and smooth.
  3. Pour melted mixture into 9 x 9 dish and refrigerate. Wait for this to set before adding the topping.
  4. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate.
  5. Add the heavy cream, vanilla, and truvia to the chocolate and stir until mixture is smooth and consistent.
  6. Once coconut mixture is set, pour chocolate over the filling and spread to top.
  7. Top with coconut and wait for the entire dish to set completely.
  8. Cut into 12 bars or servings and store in the refrigerator.
