The key to the Keto diet is low carbs, not low fat. Sandwiches are generally a no-go. But for a fast and fun breakfast in the morning, use lettuce leaves as bread, and create a delicious veggie and cheese sandwich for a filling breakfast you can make even if you’re running late.


Ingredients

  • 2 oz romaine or baby gem lettuce]
  • ½ butter
  • 1 oz cheese of your choice
  • 1/2 avocado
  • Cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Rinse the lettuce thoroughly and choose strong leaves with no tears. Gently smear with butter, and slice the cheese, avocado, and tomato on top.

A simple and fast instant breakfast. Try it with egg salad for more protein!

  3. Spoon carefully, tilting the skillet to make a rounded shape. Keep them small.
  4. Fry the pancakes for 3-4 minutes on low heat, to prevent air bubbles. Flip and fry the other side.
