Fantastic Keto Grilled Cheese Recipe (Your Kids Will Love!)

Keto Grilled Cheese with Fox Hill Kitchens Bunz

We love making this keto grilled cheese recipe whenever we show at conventions. Every time we have numerous people come up to us saying how much they’ve missed this staple in comfort food, having given up on it since starting a ketogenic/low-carb diet and they can’t believe how delicious these keto grilled cheese are!  

Because of all the positive feedback, we wanted to share a few helpful tips on making quick and delicious keto grilled cheeses using our low carb bread.

Flip Your Bunz!

If you are using Fox Hill Kitchen’s Bunz, it is super important to flip the sliced bun inside-out. 

The top of the bun will be on the inside, and the inside of the bun is in contact with the grill, cook top, or pan. 

Don't Skip The Fat & Press While Cooking

To get that wonderfully crisp keto grilled cheese you remember from your childhood, you need to use some type of fat. This will bring out the flavors in your bread as well as keep it from drying out. 

Lightly press your keto grilled cheese to ensure even browning. We use a sandwich press, but the back of a spatula works amazing as well!

Cheese it UP!

Don’t be afraid of using more than one slice of cheese! At conventions we always use at least 2 slices of cheese to make sure there is lovely ratio of cheese to bread on our keto grilled cheese. 

Swing For the Flavor Fences

One great thing about keto grilled cheese is the wide variety of ingredient combinations you can use.  

For example, create a keto grilled cheese breakfast sandwich by adding a fried egg, and your choice of breakfast meat. Alternatively, you can go savory by adding in avocado slices!

One of our favorite is making a Grown Up Grilled Cheese that includes crispy bacon, tomato, a slice of turkey, and our favorite 30 Second Mayo Recipe.
