Sandwiches are fun, portable and versatile. No low carb dieter should be without sandwiches! The best way to ensure you’re getting a sandwich in you anytime you’d like, is to have some good, trusty, low carb sandwich recipes up your sleeve, ready to go. We love packing some of these recipes away for a trip and they’re absolutely perfect for eating for lunch at work. Which one is your favorite?
Here we go, in no particular order of amazingness:
This is just so delicious and made out of coconut flour. A low carb and Gluten Free tasty sandwich! All of the taste and none of the guilt! Huzzah! The naming of the sandwich being grilled amuses me, being British, as for us it is fried. To our friends across the pond, it is grilled. I love the differences in a common language! I don’t care what it’s is called, it is still a lovely low carb sandwich type meal that is fried in butter!
Can we all agree that it's pretty hard to improve upon a BLT? I mean, the BLT is a classic combination that just works. Smoky bacon, sweet tomatoes, a nice crunch of lettuce, some really good bread, brought together with a little mayonnaise love. An awesome sandwich, really. That being said, I’m here to kick BLT into another dimension. Ready? First off, let me introduce you to my latest obsession. Cauliflower bagels.
One of the reasons many people turn to fast food (aside from it being a quick, cheap meal) in the morning is for the breakfast sandwiches. Obviously those quick meals are not low carb-friendly, but I am here to say you can still enjoy breakfast sandwiches while eating low carb foods. It may not be as fast to make these and eat them fresh, but you could probably batch-cook several of the bread halves, store them in the fridge for a few days, and then put them together fresh each morning. These are delicious and very versatile!
I have found myself craving a Philly cheese steak sandwich tonight and so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make a recipe for it! To be honest, I’ve never been to Philadelphia or eaten an authentic one because I’m Canadian, but I’ve eaten some in Canada, or at least their version of it so I just copied the taste that I’m familiar with! Usually Philly cheese steaks are eaten in a submarine, but since I quit gluten, I decided to make it into a lettuce wrap!
The latest trend on Instagram has all been about avocado bun burgers and you know what? It’s a fabulous idea!!! I couldn’t wait to try one out for myself as they’re basically the perfect healthy fat bombs and are absolutely ideal for a low carb diet. You can make so many different versions, either for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These bad boys fill you right up so you don’t need to worry about eating anything else. The best part is that they don’t take that much time to prepare!
A good bacon sandwich reminds me of growing up. Every Sunday morning, 10 am like clockwork, I’d smell the sweet notes of sizzling bacon wafting up the stairs. My nose would twitch and I’d stumble from my slumber all messy haired and sleepy eyed ready to take on dads infamous bacon sarnie. And whilst bread as I once knew it is now out, you can still totally enjoy this family favourite, in a new, more nutritious, low carb way.
This Pork Tenderloin Fontina Grain Free Sandwich with Basil Yogurt Spread is an easy dinner that the whole family will love! Add some Delicious Mayo Free Basil Yogurt Spread on this baby with some lettuce, lean pork tenderloin and creamy fontina cheese and it’s a match made a heaven! No one will complain about sandwiches for dinner with this recipe!
The Unwich from Jimmy John’s is my absolute favorite keto friendly fast food. For those who have yet to experience an unwich, the sub shop will take any sandwich on their menu, nix the bread, and wrap all the fixings in an intricately constructed half-lettuce-half-parchment origami. Essentially, it’s a lettuce wrap sandwich that doesn’t fall apart while you eat it. I love them so much.
The times we do make burgers we DO NOT go easy on the toppings. It’s kind of a slippery slope. You have the perfectly medium-rare patty, which naturally needs some cheese. Oh wait, but what about the bacon… and jalapeños for some kick! Ohhhh yes, fried egg is a must. And, of course you want a little cool down from the guacamole. And, don’t forget to make it a double! That’s exactly how it goes every time.
My husband’s great-aunt likes to invite the kids over every summer for a special tea party. My kids really love going for the food and snacks. One of the things that’s usually made are finger sandwiches. I especially like the ones made with olive and cream cheese. But, this year, I decided to try making one with a creamy cucumber filling. For the bread in these cucumber cream cheese sandwiches, I used the Focaccia Style Flax Bread Recipe at About.com. It has a great video to go along with the recipe on how to make it. I was able to cut the bread into 10 squares.
Do you miss having bagels as much as I do? I admit to being a former bread addict and bagels are a weakness of mine. Sesame bagels are a favorite, especially with bacon and scallion cream cheese like Bruegger’s Bagels makes. Mmmm.
This recipe was inspired by Rami’s love for breakfast sausage. We decided to make a low carb sandwich, breakfast style, on a low carb English muffin! We didn’t have English muffins, nor did we have breakfast sausage, but when you’ve got a craving, you can’t stop just because you’re missing half the ingredients!
Smoked ham and pork tenderloin together on low carb, gluten-free sandwich bread for a delicious, healthy Cubano sandwich.
