Microwave for 90 seconds, allow the bread to cool for a minute or two, then remove the bread from the dish. Heat a skillet on medium high heat with the butter. Carefully slice the bread in half, horizontally, so that you end up with two thin slices.

When the butter is nice and hot, add the bread to the skillet. Cook until golden, then flip both over and cook until all sides of the bread are golden and crisp.

Expert Tips

  1. Have your own favourite keto bread? Use it instead!
  2. If the bread isn’t fully cooked after the 90 seconds are up, microwave for an additional 10 seconds.
  3. Don’t have a microwave? Spray an oven safe dish, 4-5″ wide, with cooking spray oil and then add the mixed bread ingredients. Bake it in a 350° oven for about 15 minutes, until the bread it fully cooked through. Continue on with the slicing and frying method.
  4. Be sure the butter in the skillet is nice and hot before adding the bread so that is gets golden and crisp.

    This recipe is a dream come true! I love BLT’s and missed out on it because of the bread. This is the best keto lunch! Will be having again and again! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Wow this BLT looks amazing! I can’t believe the bread is made from scratch too! Soo excited to try this.

  3. I can’t use almond flour, is there a way to sub coconut flour? I know it will be sweeter.
