Sandwich a creamy tuna spread with avocado and melted cheese between two pieces of crispy, buttery ketogenic bread slices and I’ll be over for lunch anytime! Canned fish is a quick and easy high protein addition for many types of meals. I like having canned fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel, and tuna) stored in the pantry to add into omelettes, quiches, frittatas annnnnd sandwiches!
My All-Purpose Keto Bread makes 16 thin slices, enough for me to make a sandwiches for a few days in a row or make a meal for everyone and freeze half the loaf for another time. The bread freezes well and thaws quickly. I always pre-slice the bread before freezing so it thaws faster and I can separate a few pieces at a time.

Glorified Grilled Cheese?
An avocado tuna melt is really a fancy, supercharged grilled cheese sandwich. You follow the basic principles of pan-frying butter bread until it is crispy and delicious on the outside and stuff the inside with avocado, a creamy tuna mixture and lettuce, tomato and broccoli or alfalfa sprouts, mustard, olive oil mayonnaise, etc as you see fit.
Recipe Suggestion: Keto Grilled Cheese
Many different types of cheese are suitable for sandwiching between slices of low-carb ketogenic bread. I like smoked mozzarella and raw milk cheddar. Other cheeses like Colby, pepper Jack, muenster, Parmesan or provolone also work. As long as it melts, it should be good!
