90-Second Keto Bread BLT Sandwich

by - 1:11 PM

I succumbed to the "bread cravings" and decided, what's the worst that could happen if I try out making one of these "Keto" breads? I mean, I do love using almond flour - especially when making cakes, so what do I have to loose? 

Reading through tons of recipes, there was one that totally caught my eye... 90-second microwave Keto bread. Wait a few hours, or whip something up in minutes? Done and done. 

So this recipe is pretty easy, and makes sense. Almond flour, egg, fat, and baking powder to help it rise. Mix it all up, throw it in the microwave to cook the egg, and voila! Eggy bread loaf. 

BUT - I made a few changes... because that's what I do, to make it EVEN BETTER for BLT consumption. So enjoy! Or don't. But I just wanted to share it with ya!

90-Second Keto Bread BLT Sandwich
You could also make this a BLTA, I just didn't have any Avocado lying around

3-4 strips bacon
1 egg
3 tbsp. almond flour 
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. Everything Bagel Seasoning
1 tbsp. mayonnaise
1/2 small tomato, sliced 
1 piece green leaf lettuce 
1 slice red onion

In a skillet over medium-low heat, cook bacon until crispy. Cook slow and low so you can render as much fat out of the bacon as possible. You ideally want at least 1 tablespoon of bacon fat rendered out.

Remove bacon from skillet and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain. 

In a bowl mix together egg, almond flour, baking powder, and 1 tablespoon of rendered bacon fat. If you didn't get quite enough for 1 tablespoon, fill the rest with melted butter or oil. 

Pour mixture into a small greased microwave safe dish - whatever shape you want the bread to be with a flat bottom. Ramekins work well. Sprinkle the top with Everything Bagel Seasoning... because that makes everything better!

Place dish in the microwave and microwave on high for 90 seconds. When the bread comes out, it will be hot, and will look like a weird puffed egg muffin. Turn it out onto a cutting board and then carefully cut the bread in half lengthwise. 

In the same skillet you had cooked the bacon in, heat it back up and toast the bread in whatever bacon drippings are still in the pan. If needed, add just a touch of butter. Toast the bread for about 1-2 minutes on each side or until the bread is slightly golden brown. 

Spread mayonnaise on each side and load it up with your bacon, tomato, lettuce, red onion, and optionally avocado. Enjoy!!
