Once you’ve been eating Keto for a while, you can get a bit tired of the same old lunches and dinners. That’s why I created this Keto Cheese and Bacon Bread! It reminds me of those cheese and bacon rolls you get from bakeries, but is so much more moist and obviously much lower in carbs.
Cooking the bacon beforehand ensures you get a rich bacon flavour through the whole loaf. It can be on the crumbly side if you try to cut it straight away, so if you can resist, let it cool down first. I have this hot or cold, breakfast, lunch, dinner or for a snack and it works perfectly for all occasions. This would also be delicious toasted with a poached egg on top for breakfast!
As with all cooking, the end product is only as good as the quality of your ingredients, so get the best eggs, bacon and almond flour you can. I go to a little boutique store for my almond flour called Miss Gourmet & Co in Hawthorn (Victoria, Australia) for those that are local. It is the finest almond flour I have found and is priced very reasonably.
Keto Cheese and Bacon Bread
This loaf has all the best things about keto, loaded with bacon and cheese, eggs and almond flour. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack!
- 200 grams bacon
- 1.5 cups almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 4 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup grated tasty cheese
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees and line and grease a loaf pan (I use silicone - nothing sticks to it!)
Dice the bacon rashers and fry in a large frying pan until just crispy.
Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, salt and baking powder, breaking up any lumps in the flour.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the sour cream and eggs until it is a smooth consistency.
Once the bacon is cooked, combine the almond flour with the sour cream and eggs and mix thoroughly until combined.
Stir through the melted butter and then gently fold through the cooked bacon and cheese.
Pour into the prepared loaf tin and bake for 45 - 50 minutes until a skewer comes out completely clean. Let cool before slicing, if you can wait!
