Low Carb Breakfast: Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich!

low carb BLT sandwichThat’s right, the title says Sandwich!

If you are following a low carb diet, LCHF, Ketogenic or even if you are simply gluten free, when was the last time you had a BLT? For me it was yesterday! I stumbled across this low carb bread recipe made with coconut flour. On it’s own, it’s not overly fantastic, but then I thought Bacon Makes Everything Better. Oh yeah, that is so true!

So off I went to make my low carb dream come true. This bread is net 2 carbs per slice if you are following an Atkins type program.

For those who have never had one of these (WHAT!? Really?) here is the how to:

Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich (Low Carb Version)

  • 2 slices low carb bread
  • 2 slices all natural bacon, crispy (mine had zero carbs)
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 2 slices lettuce
  • butter and mayonnaise to taste (If you are LCHF be generous with this!)
  • salt and pepper to taste

First of all this bread needs to be toasted or it is a bit crumbly.  In fact, I toasted it twice to make it nice and crispy.  Then it’s just a matter of Assemble and Eat!

If you don’t want to make your own bread, then you can order this Low Carb Bread .

Or if you just don’t want to eat bread, here is an even easier and lower carb version of this famous breakfast. This is also quite dreamy!

Low Carb BLT Lettuce Wraps

  • 2 leaf or romaine lettuce leaveslow carb BLT sandwich
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked to crispy
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise

Put mayo on the lettuce leaf and assemble as shown. Wrap and eat. This is really, really good and you actually get even more of that BLT flavor!

Well, I hope you enjoy your next LCHF or low carb breakfast!
