The Ultimate Keto Grilled Cheese Recipe:

Only 3 Net Carbs!

The keto lifestyle has been so good to me from the energy boost to the weight loss, but I’ll admit there are a few things I’ve really missed. One of those things is a good, fully-loaded grilled cheese. Once I found the Easy Low Carb Bread Recipe by Wholesome Yum, I knew exactly what the first thing I’d be making was! I mean, look at this beautiful loaf:

I love loading up a grilled cheese sandwich. Honestly, every city should have a restaurant that specializes in grilled cheeses and now that I’ve had the thought I might just have to open one! My favorite type of has multiple types of cheese and, of course, bacon. But I took it to another level and thought I’d try to add a little avocado and it did not disappoint, and I don’t really even like avocado. I know, I know, how do I sit on the #KetoCouch when I don’t like avocado? Hey, I’m trying and I’ve officially found a way that I will eat it over and over again. Say it with me, Y’all – GRILLED CHEESE. My dinner last night was a regular grilled cheese sandwich but today I kicked it up a notch with this fully loaded beast and the best part is there’s only 3 Net Carbs. Win, win. If you try this recipe, I want to know what you think!

The Ultimate Keto Grilled Cheese Recipe


  • Easy Low Carb Bread Recipe Wholesome Yum (recipe above)
  • 1/4 Cup Organic Mexican Shredded Cheese
  • 1 Triangle Happy Cow Swiss
  • 1/4 Avocado
  • 1 Piece Bacon
  • Butter


  1. Cook your slice of bacon.
  2. Once your bacon is done to the way you like, remove from pan and set aside. Remove excess bacon grease.
  3. Butter both sides of both your pieces of bread.
  4. Spread your Happy Cow Cheese on one side and avocado on the other.
  5. Heat up your pan with 1-2 tbsp of butter. I prefer to use a a cast iron pan to get a nice browned side!
  6. Place once slice of bread in the pan with the cheese or avocado side UP, buttered side DOWN.
  7. Add your Organic Mexican Shredded Cheese to the piece of bread already in the pan. Carefully place the other slice of bread on top of the slice in the pan, butter side UP this time. Now all of your 'fixins are in between two pieces of bread.
  8. Cover your pan with a lid so the cheese can get nice and melty. Once your cheese starts to melt, take the lid off, smoosh the grilled cheese with a spatula, and flip!
  9. Repeat on the other side, making sure not to burn either side. Add butter as needed.


If you add more bacon, I won't judge you.

Use as much butter as needed or wanted!

I made my Keto Bread from Wholesome Yum and you can find the recipe here --->

My loaf of bread was small so I only used 1/4 of an avocado, you're welcome to use more just like the bacon! Just remember the macros will change. I used MyFitnessPal to determine the nutrition of my recipe.
