I’ve always loved sandwiches and it’s what pretty much got me through my

college years.

Subway, Quiznos, the local deli’s, I ate it all.  But now given that sandwiches

are no longer an option being low-carb/keto, I had to find replacements to

traditional sandwiches.

There are popular substitutions like ‘unwiches’ where the bread is replaced

with a lettuce wrap but they never fully satisfied my sandwich cravings


1/2 cup pork rind crumbs

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

2 tbl  kraft mayo

1 egg


Whisk mayo and egg together first then add cheese and pork rind crumbs.

Let dough rest a few minutes and divide in half.

Put half of dough in a cold dry nonstick skillet (8 inch), no fat/oil needed.

Press down with wet hands until bottom of pan is covered or small round is


Let cook 3-5 min or until crispy then flip and crisp other side.

Flip once more, add cheese and/or filling on one side and flip other side

over on top.

Flip a few times so cheese melts and serve!

You can also make just the by crisping both sides then cool and fill with

ingredients for a cold sandwich if preferred or use as a pizza crust!  Options

are limitless!

Hope you enjoy your low-carb/keto Cheese Crisp Sandwich!
