Ultimate Keto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

8 ratings

This Ultimate Keto Grilled Cheese Sandwich will be the meltiest, easiest, Keto grilled cheese you can find. Fluffy, soft Keto Loaf Bread (recipe from this site) is sliced thin and layered with two stacks of cheese. The bread is slathered with room temperature salted butter and placed in a hot saute pan until each side is deliciously golden brown, and the center cheese is completely melted and oozing. You will love how low carb and easy this grilled cheese is.

What Keto bread should I use?

The Keto Loaf Bread recipe is what is pictured below. Some Keto loaves of bread on the market will be a great substitute if you do not feel like making your own bread. https://www.carbmanager.com/recipe/keto-loaf-bread

What kind of cheese should I use?

We opted for American cheese because it is the gold standard for grilled cheese and also melts the easiest. If you use other types of cheese, just account for how easily they melt. Harder cheeses like a sharp cheddar will take longer to melt, therefore, will need to be on the lowest heat possible for longer versus a softer cheese like gouda. Feel free to mix up what slice cheeses you use for this as dill Havarti, Swiss cheese, Pepper Jack are all fun options.

Do I have to use butter for the toasted bread?

If dairy is an issue for you, you can use solid ghee or mayo slathered on the bread instead of room temperature butter. Salted butter has the best flavor, though.

Serving suggestions

This Ultimate Keto Grilled Cheese Sandwich would be great with a bowl of classic tomato soup or this Cauliflower Soup with Pancetta and Ricotta https://www.carbmanager.com/recipe/keto-cauliflower-soup-with-pancetta-and-ricotta.

    Slice your Keto bread if using homemade bread. Each slice should be around 1 oz each. Preheat a nonstick small skillet over medium-high heat until hot. In the meantime, take your Keto bread slices and slather them from end to end with room temperature butter. Feel free to use ghee or mayo too.

    Turn the heat down to very low and add the sandwiches to the pan. Allow them to cook for several minutes about 5 minutes per side until the bread is golden brown and delicious and the cheese on the inside is melted. The bread should be crispy.

          Try Lewis bread. They have cinnamon bread and buns. Awesome. If they don’t have them in your store, you could go online and have the bread shipped to you.

          Carbonaut has 1gram net carbs 40calories and 14 grams of fiber all in one slice it is plant based and does not crumble or fall apart no large air holes either. I have to be gluten free and the bread is tasty and wonderful.

            Omg this was amazing!!! I used mozzarella and ham slices and a dollop of mayonnaise, only thing I’d change for next time is the cheese and use a stronger one, possibly more of it. . great go to for a quick lunch

              What about putting a bit of mayo on the bread and toast with butter on the outside. So yummy!
