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!
