If you’re like me, then you could just about live on egg sandwiches. ESPECIALLY if they have loads of bacon and cheese on them! The problem with a low carb diet is bread. Now, you’re never going to find a low carb bread (and I mean NEVER) that has the taste and consistency of a crusty italian loaf, or wonder bread (if that’s what you’re in to). However, there are pretty good low carb breads out there, and for me, they make a low carb lifestyle livable.
Enter, the low carb egg sandwich with bacon and all the cheese you can handle. I should mention upfront that I made 3 of these. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO EAT ALL THREE. (Well, ok, you can, but you’ll be pretty full.) This bread is VERY filling. It’s not the kind of bread you’ll want to eat on its own, but it makes for a great sandwich and contains LOADS of fiber.
Here’s a pic of the bread wrapper. You can buy this bread here.
Ten grams of carbs, but 9 grams of fiber, so 1 net carb per slice
First step, fry up your bacon, and then fry your eggs in the bacon grease.
When your eggs are nearly cooked (just a bit of “snot” on top), add as much cheese as you want on top and cover again to quickly melt the cheese. Keep an eye on this. Fried cheese is nice but soft melted cheese that’s still on top of your egg is better
Once the cheese is melted, drop them on your well buttered toast.
Next, put as much bacon on there are you think your heart can handle. Then put on more!
Finally, cover with your other piece of toast and serve. Again, one of these should fill the average adult bear, you don’t need to eat all three!
So that’s it. An egg and bacon and cheese sandwich in 2.6 grams of carbs (1 carb per slice x 2 + 0.6 carbs for the egg).
