This Keto Breakfast Sandwich is an excellent way to start your day low carb style! Low on carbs, but high on healthy fats and protein this might just become your go-to for staying full and focused.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but after a while on a keto diet, it can be hard to find low carb breakfasts that you’re actually excited about.
Of course bacon is delicious, but sometimes you want something more that’s also easy to put together. And with the convenience of drive thru fast food breakfast sandwiches being unavailable, it’s even more important to have breakfast options that aren’t labor intensive.
That’s where this easy keto breakfast sandwich comes in.
What is the keto bread on this sandwich?
The base of this sandwich is a variation of the popular 90 second bread. It’s originally a microwaved bread, using almond flour or coconut flour, but by pressing it on a mini waffle iron, you get an incredible, sturdy and easy to handle base for this sandwich.
If you want to press yours out just like mine you’ll want to get the Dash mini waffle maker. It’s an awesome little appliance that is perfect for everything from this breakfast sandwich to keto chaffles!
What ingredients do I need to make a keto breakfast sandwich?

Some great ideas for customization include adding a drizzle of sriracha or swapping out the sausage for crispy bacon!
This is not a low calorie sandwich. For the entire thing you're looking at roughly 818 calories. That said, it is VERY filling and very easy to make with lighter swaps.
For example, you can always use turkey sausage instead of pork, egg whites instead of the full egg, leave off the avocado, or nix the cheese.
Additionally, you can eat half today and save the other half for tomorrow. The choice is yours!
