Keto Breakfast Sandwich Buns

What is your Keto breakfast go to?

Mine is, and has been bacon and eggs for months. I am quite loyal to routine and find that 5 out of 7 days I go for the easy, the reliable, bacon and fried eggs!

I will throw in pancakes or muffins sometimes for good measure, but mostly I stick with quick and easy so I can get on with my day!

Well these special breakfast sandwich buns are super easy!! You just whip it up in the blender, bake and eat! Then stack up a couple fried eggs with cheese and bacon and your set! Try with ham for a twist instead of bacon.

Lets get these buns in the oven😄

The only special ingredient needed you may not have is maple extract. This gives the buns a breakfast taste that really sets it apart from other “muffin” type sandwich buns.

Get some online. I recommend Frontier brand as it is the best one that doesn’t leave an aftertaste!

You will also need wide mouth canning rings as molds. I greased them then set on a parchment lined pan.

Bake until golden, then gently push out from the underside.

Keto Breakfast Sandwich Buns

2 large eggs

2 oz cream cheese

2/3 cup Almond Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp maple extract

10-15 drops liquid stevia

Place the ingredients for the buns into a blender and pulse until smooth.

Pour evenly into greased wide mouth canning rings (approximately 2-3 tbsp per lid) that are sitting on a silpat, foil or parchment. This all should be sitting on a flat cookie sheet.

Fill up till 1/4 inch from top.

Bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes or until set. Allow to cool slightly before removing from the rings.

Use in your sandwich of bacon, egg and cheese!

Will keep up to 5 days in fridge.


Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza

When you have kids, there will be leftovers because they are most likely going to fall asleep during dinner.

If not, you are lucky! Well we recently had cheeseburgers and I saved my sons portion that he didn’t touch.

I then made this pizza crust and used part cheddar cheese in the recipe of the crust and topping!

I crumbled up the burger, abou 1/4 cup cooked, cut up some cooked bacon, 1/4 cup, into little bits.

Baked the 2nd time at 400°F for 6 min after topping the crust and then 5 min on broil.

Yum!!


Keto Bacon Rollups

If you love bacon and eggs but need a way to jazz it up a little, try this way of eating them!

It is similar to the cheese rollups made of cheese, but this time the outside is crispy bacon!

You can even make these up ahead of time and reheat on low in a covered skillet!

This recipe makes 2 large rollups. 1 was filling for me but maybe you’ll want both if your really hungry!

KETO BACON ROLLUPS

4 strips of bacon, uncooked

3 eggs, whisked with salt n pepper plus a splash of cream

Cook eggs scrambled. Set aside.

I like to sprinkle a bit of cheese on mine!

On a board lay out two pieces of bacon.

Put a handful of the eggs on one end of the slightly edge overlapped bacon.

Start rolling it up, keeping it as tight as possible.

Fry in a pan seam side down. Keep rotating till all the bacon is cooked.

Enjoy!!

Let me know how these worked out for you!


Keto French Toast Sticks

It was before I made the choice to eat healthy when I would visit my fave fast food drive thru to get my breakfast of French Toast sticks. I would get an extra syrup cup, and never thought twice about the ingredients!

That was 8 yrs ago before my daughter was born and I became conscience of my eating habits! I have since gone gluten free and most recently keto! I still have my two children to feed so I have to recreate favorites to make them healthier! So here you have my version of French Toast sticks! They were a big hit with the kids, and I plan on making extra and freezing for the busy school mornings ahead!

The first step in making these uber yummy sticks is to have your fave loaf of bread! You can purchase a loaf of keto bread, or follow my recipe to make your own! Here is my quick and easy recipe to make a tasty loaf of your own!

So now that you have your bread of choice ready, take out 3 slices and lets get started!

Cut each slice vertically into 3 pieces like this!

Set aside while you prepare the egg dip!

You will need a semi shallow bowl and add 2 large eggs and 1/4 cup heavy cream(or canned coconut milk).

Then add 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Whisk it all well until it looks like this! You want to make sure it is well whisked as you don’t want stringy egg whites cooked to your sticks!

Now its time to heat up your pan. Get it nice and hot and add 1 Tbsp coconut oil or butter. I prefer coconut oil as it gives it a fried doughnut taste😋!

Get your batter bowl close to the pan and dip each side into the egg wash. Gently place on the pan after you let the excess drip off.

Don’t crowd too many on as you want to have room to flip them!

Give it a few minutes and then flip to the other side. You want them golden brown like this.

Since my slices were thicker, I also put them on their sides to crisp up the edges. If your bread is thinner you won’t have to worry about this step.

Next add 1/4 cup Lakanto monkfruit sweetener (or preferred granulated sweetener) and 1 Tbsp cinnamon to a small bowl. Whisk well.

As the french toast sticks are done, brush them with softened, or melted butter.

Then dip each one in the cinnamon/sweetener bowl.

They are ready to either place on a cookie sheet and freeze for quick breakfasts, or to eat immediately!

I poured out some of Lakantos Sugar Free maple syrup to dip mine in. The kids used real maple syrup for theirs!

They are dense and filling! I absolutely loved these! The dipping is fun too!

This recipe makes 2 servings at approx. 5 net carbs per serving!

Keto Waffled Egg Wrap-ups

During the school year it is difficult to come up with quick breakfasts that I can throw together before we head out in the morning! So, I came up with this quick and easy egg wrap-up!

It takes less than 10 minutes to make and is a high protien option to keep kids full till lunch!

You can get creative too and add Italian seasoning to the eggs and wrap-up pepperoni. Maybe around a breakfast sausage, or try my favorite way with bacon🥓

Lets get waffling!

I whisked up 3 large eggs with a splash of heavy whipping cream in a measuring cup with a spout. I salt and peppered to taste. Preheat your waffle iron so its good and hot. Grease it up and pour half into the wafflemaker.

Don’t be alarmed when it puffs up huge, it produces a lot of steam!

Then after just 2 minutes it is ready! I put it on a plate to cool.

It will look like this once its done!

I made up some bacon and put it between the waffled eggs.

Then I wrapped each half circle sandwich with wax paper and it was my on-the-go breakfast!

What will you fill your Waffled egg wrap-up with?
