Avocado on Toast with Bacon and Blue Cheese – Low Carb and Gluten Free
Avocado on toast is all the rage right now. I mean people are spending $8 a pop for this trendy little open faced sandwich. That is just crazy! This version is easy to make at home any day of the week and is low carb and gluten free. It’s the perfect low carb mom lunch. Yay!
After making this yummy low carb snack, I realized it is very filling! I am officially calling this a low carb mom lunch. I’ve even added a new category to my site that includes all of that low carb food that our husbands and kids wouldn’t dare touch. They are packed with yummy veggies and lots of green things. These are the things I like to eat for lunch. What about you?
The bread for avocado on toast is usually not anything special, but I wanted to amp up the flavors of mine. I used cloud bread as my bread layer and I added coriander and garlic powder to the mix to make it extra yummy. Those flavors really compliment the avocado!
I always forget how easy cloud bread is to make until after I make it. The only thing that keeps me from making it more often is that I have to pull out my stand mixer. I seriously need to invest in a hand mixer asap!
You don’t have to use cloud bread for this recipe. You could use any low carb bread that you like. Do you have a favorite recipe that you use? Please let me know in the comments! I am always on the hunt for a really good bread recipe.
