It’s easy to see why this Keto Cheese and Bacon Bread is the #1 recipe on my website. Every single day, hundreds of people are making this Keto Cheese and Bacon Bread and loving it – I know because they are sending me emails!
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, you know the ones with the cheesy crusts?
It is so much more moist and obviously much lower in carbs though so is a Keto win! I LOVE having this with avocado on top, it feels so decadent and rich, you only need one slice.
I’ve also seen readers put some fresh tomato slices on the bread and even vegemite. YUM
Cooking the bacon beforehand means 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. Out of the fridge is always best.
You can see below how it looks quite dense here, because it has been refrigerated and it cuts really easily.
I always cut it, then either microwave or put it in the oven for a bit and top with your favourite things (butter!!) or nothing at all.
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 under the grill or in a frying pan with a poached egg on top for breakfast.
I think it would be too crumbly for the toaster though – warning, please do not set your kitchen on fire trying to toast this in the toaster please. You have been warned.
SAVE KETO CHEESE AND BACON BREAD TO PINTEREST FOR LATER
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.
Of course not everyone can pop down to Hawthorn, so I also buy my almond from Amazon. I use this one:
I have included below photos of each step to make this recipe as easy as possible. Some people get worried that the batter is bit … goopy (the only word I can think of that explains the batter!).
It’s not really a dough so much as a sticky mix, so if yours looks like mine, you’re fine.
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!
Preheat the oven to 150C (300f) 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 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. Optionally, sprinkle with extra cheese. Bake for 45 – 50 minutes until a skewer comes out completely clean. Let cool and refrigerate before slicing to avoid it being too crumbly, if you can wait!
