Keto Avocado Toasts - 4 Ways

These Keto Avocado Toasts are the perfect low-carb breakfast or snack option that’s packed with healthy fats, protein, and tons of flavor.

I don’t know about you but I miss having toast in the mornings. One of my previous go-to’s was a warm slice of homemade sourdough bread toasted and rubbed with tomato and garlic plus a little ricotta smead on top with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. These days I can still get my fix in a low-carb / gluten free way if I have a low-carb bread on hand but typically I don’t.

Enter bread cheese.

Yes, BREAD CHEESE.

What is bread cheese?

Bread cheese is a Finnish squeaky cheese also called juustoleipä or leipäjuusto.

It's a semi-soft cheese traditionally made with reindeer milk (who knew THAT was a thing?), the bread cheese you're likely to find in the US is made from pasteurized cow's milk.

When you buy bread cheese at your local grocer it will look a bit like toast - browned and charred in spots.

Kind of like halloumi, bread cheese won't melt when heated, it just gets softened. What we do is heat it for about 1 minute per side in the skillet before topping it with all of our keto toast toppings.

Does the cheese really make toast?

No, it doesn’t really make toast but for a low carb avocado “toast” it’s pretty epic

How do you REALLY cut an avocado?

There's a LOT of debate on how to cut an avocado but here's our go-to method:

  • Slice all the way around the avocado length wise.

  • Twist the halves apart.

  • Gently tap the knife into the pit then twist to remove the pit.

  • Lay the avocado cut side down on a cutting board. Cut in half again then peel off the skin gently. This makes sure that all of the nutrients that are close to the skin stay in tact. Plus, skipping the spoon keeps your slices looking pretty.

Here's 4 ways to make this low-carb keto avocado toast:

Loaded Bagel

Keto Avocado Toasts - Loaded Everything Bagel with Lox

Lox, everything bagel seasoning, red onion, tomato, capers, and a schmear of cream cheese does the trick to make you feel like you're setting on a park bench in the lower east side of NYC munching on a Russ & Daughters bagel.

Ok, ok it's not THAT delicious but it is pretty damn good.

Latin Inspired

Keto Avocado Toasts - Latin Style

For this Latin inspired version we've used a little passed ripe avocado so that it mashes well. Top it off with a fried egg seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper, sliced radishes, sliced jalapeño, a drizzle of chimichurri, and a few pickled red onions for one delicious treat.

Classic

Keto Avocado Toasts - Classic Style

Avocado, olive oil, flaky sea salt, and crushed red pepper flakes keep this version quick, simple, and easy.

Goat Cheese + Bacon

Keto Avocado Toasts - Goat Cheese with Bacon

This may be my favorite version we've done so far. Herbed goat cheese, avocado, and crispy bacon are a match made in heaven.

What is the nutritional information for this avocado "toast" recipe?

Bread cheese has 0 g net carbs per serving so all of your carbs will come from the toppings that you choose for your keto bread cheese toasts. Before I get a question about saturated fat let's start with this:

Saturated fat has been shown to have lots of positive effects on the body, including:

Now for some fun fact on avocados:

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids as well as lots of fiber.

Did you know that avocados have more potassium than a banana? Actually more than DOUBLE.

That's it! Do you have any topping suggestions? Leave em' below!
