Fix up a healthy, kid-approved keto grilled cheese sandwich for lunch or a quick dinner. With my easy keto recipes, you can make all your favorite high carb foods like sandwiches keto style!
Embrace your inner 5-year-old! Thick slices of high-quality cheese are sandwiched between two pieces of our gluten-free, grain-free All-Purpose Keto Bread.
I usually set out to make these sandwiches for our kids, but the smell of buttery cheese cooking in the pan is hard to pass by. Our All-purpose Keto Bread cooks into a crispy outside and remains soft and gooey inside. Sprinkle a pinch or two of salt on top before serving and…. OH YEAH! It’s good.

What kind of cheese?
You want to use a cheese that will melt. Having cheese ooze out between two crispy, buttery slices of bread is the classic picture you are going for. Young cheddar, Monterrey jack, Swiss-style cheeses (Gruyere), Taleggio and Brie are all good choices that will bring the mouth feel you’re looking for. Mix and matching harder, aged cheeses like feta and parmesan with mozzarella or Fontina. As long as you have a cheese that will melt, it will meld with the harder types. We suggest trying RAW MILK cheeses. They are delicious! US Wellness has a varied selection of high-quality raw milk cheese.
