Food,  For The Love Of...,  Keto

Keto, Low Carb – Ham, Turkey, Swiss Warm Sandwich (With Dough Recipe)

So many people think if they decide to “go keto” they are so restricted.  But seriously I think the foods I eat on keto are so much better than those I ate when I wasn’t!  This is a great example – tasty keto friendly ham, turkey and swiss warm sandwich!

To begin I simply break out my awesome Kitchenaid Mixer and get to work.  This batch makes 2 large sized sandwiches.  Often I will double batches of everything but with this one I don’t need to.

Preheat oven to 425F.

I place all of this in my mixing bowl:

  • 2 cups low moisture shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
  • a dash of salt
  • Italian Seasoning to taste (I used approximately 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 egg

Mix all in the blender bowl.  Transfer to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 60 seconds.

Place on parchment paper – I suggest using half the mixture so you have two separate strombolis.  Cover with more parchment paper and roll into a flat dough.  Make sure you have a large size underneath as well as on top because it should spread easily.

Remove the top layer of parchment paper and flip onto a greased cookie sheet.  Bake for approximately 10 minutes then flip the dough over, remove the parchment paper that should now be on top, and bake for another 5 minutes.

Remove from oven and layer your turkey, ham and swiss – down the middle.  This is done in the same manner you would layer them if you were making a wrap.   Once I roll the sides over the center, I tend to flip it back over onto the folded sections.

Cook until the insides are warm, the cheese is melted and the outside is a nice golden color.  YUM!

Now this is far better than any plain old turkey, ham and cheese sandwich!  Next I will make this with tuna – for a keto tuna melt!

The possibilities really are endless – how about an awesome egg, cheese and bacon sandwich.  Oh I can’t wait to create more!
