Low-Carb Breakfast of the Champions Sandwich

This is my usual breakfast. It is easy to make and something I can eat right before I dash to work.

Ingredients:

Your choice of low-carb bread (You can choose here)

1 tablespoon butter

4 eggs

4 slices of bacon

Harvati cheese

American cheese

Salt

Pepper

Instructions:

1. Melt the butter over medium heat in a large pan.

2. Fry four eggs and season with salt and pepper, approximately 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.

3. Cook bacon in the microwave until crispy; set aside.

4. Add one half of a slice of both the Havarti and American cheeses to 4 of the bread halves.

5. Top the cheese with one slice of bacon.

6. This step is optional, but you can bake the sandwich for 5 minutes to melt the cheese.

Low-Carb Bacon and Egg Sandwich


Ingredients:

Your choice of low-carb bread (You can choose here)

Mayonnaise

8 thin-cut sliced bacon

4 eggs

Salt

Pepper

Olive oil (To use for frying the eggs)

Green, leafy vegetable of your choice (I usually stick with lettuce)

Avocado

Instruction:

1. Fry the bacon. It would be ideal if you use a cold, nonstick frying pan. Cook on a low heat until the fat starts to run out then turn up to a medium heat and cook for roughly 2 minutes on each side. Cook until you reach your preferred done-ness. Place the bacon on a kitchen towel to absorb the excess oil.

2. In a clean frying pan, heat a little olive oil and crack in the eggs, just 2 at a time. Season them with salt and pepper.

3. Top your bread with mayonnaise, green, leafy vegetables, 2 slices of bacon, and the fried egg.
