Low Carb Grilled Cheese is Ooey-Gooey Delicious!

What’s better than sliced bread? That’s a really pertinent and important question when it comes to living a low carb lifestyle! Since most breads and flours are out of the question because of their high carb count how can you make yourself an ooey-gooey delicious low carb sandwich?

Ooey Good Delicious Low Carb Grilled Cheese Sandwich

With this low carb sandwich bread recipe is how! Thanks to Christina Ross for sharing her lunch with us on The Low Carb Challenge Facebook group last week! My hubby and I both give it a big thumbs up! We decided to forego the tomato Christina added to hers to fully evaluate the bread alone and lower our carb count but it would certainly be yummy!

Ooey-Gooey Delicious Low Carb Grilled Cheese
This low carb grilled cheese sandwich is ooey-gooey delicious Use it as a jumping off point to add some of your favorite cheese, precooked bacon, tomatoes or more!
Serves: 1 serving
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 2 TBSP coconut flour
  • 1-1/2 TBSP butter - melted
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • Your choice of cheese
  • Toppings (optional) i.e, pre-cooked bacon, tomato slices, etc.
  • Softened butter for spreading on bread when grilling sandwich
  1. Thoroughly whisk together the eggs and water.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Spread mixture into a microwavable container (I used a 4" x 6" plastic deli dish)
  4. Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove from microwave and immediately turn out of container.
  6. When cool enough to handle use a large serrated bread knife and split the thickness of the bread into two equal parts. Cut each half in two so you now have four pieces of bread, or enough for two sandwiches.
  7. Butter one side of each slice of bread with softened (not melted) butter.
  8. Put butter side down into a skillet or griddle sprayed with a non-stick spray.
  9. Add cheese and toppings of your choice.
  10. Add 2nd piece of bread to top, butter side out.
  11. Cover with lid and cook on med-high until bottom is golden brown.
  12. Flip sandwiches over and brown second side.
  13. Remove from pan and serve.
  14. ENJOY!
Bread has 2 net carbs total.
Add however many carbs your cheese of choice contributes and any other toppings you decide to have.

This bread is good for not only grilled cheese but ham and cheese, peanut butter and sugar-free jelly, chicken or tuna salad or any lunch meat sandwich you’d like. It’s not as eggy tasting as some others and a good use for that big bag of coconut flour just sitting in your cupboard! Heck we are toasting some tomorrow to dip in our egg yolks!  I like making mine using a bread-shaped plastic container like the one pictured here! Makes it look as good as it tastes!

Grilled Cheese Panini with ThinSlim BreadNot into making your own bread? This really is very super simple to make FAST in your microwave but I can understand if you just don’t have the time or inclination to start from scratch. In that case I really recommend this ThinSlim Love the Taste low-carb bread! I have tried a few different brands and my family thinks that this one is the closest to regular bread both in taste and texture. Read my FULL review. Want to take it up a notch? Make your grilled cheese with the panini press below with your ThinSlim bread and no one will even consider that it’s low carb! Slather it with butter, use some amazing cheese and you are suddenly a gourmet! 

While I have been using a plain old frying pan to make my low-carb grilled cheese sandwiches this great panini press just caught my eye! I can just envision adding some shaved ham with my cheese and grilling it to absolute perfection! Can’t you??? It’s so inexpensive that I don’t think I can resist! Reviews and questions answered on Amazon say that people use it for grilled cheese all the time AND that it’s a snap to clean up! I guess that’s why it gets 4 out of 5 stars from everyone that has purchased one! 


So how would YOU use this versatile bread and what extras make YOUR grilled cheese sandwiches memorable??? I love hearing from you! Please let us know in your comment below!

In the meantime, ciao for now and see you soon!

Ciao for NOW! ~Marge

    • The coconut flour has 3 net carbs, and because you are not eating the whole thing at once…
      I split it and split it again to make the sandwich.
      Otherwise it would have been way too thick and too much bread for cheese ratio.
      As in any recipe it will depend on the ingredients you select, but the net carbs are correct.
      Hope this helps Roger!

  1. So each batch you cut in half twice, ultimately making two full sandwiches? I don’t think 3 net carbs in a meal is bad. I’m planning to make grilled tuna and cheese using this recipe. I’m excited 🙂

  2. I havent tried it yet, but just copied the recipe and can’t wait to try, I was thing of even maybe making french toast with it :)… or maybe butter it up and add some LC brown sugar and cinnamon

    • Let me know how much you like it Lynn!
      I haven’t had anyone that hasn’t!
      You will find that I have used it AND another kind of
      low-carb bread for french toast too! Just pop “french”
      into the site search engine to find them all! ENJOY!!!

    • Mary, we just count carbs, don’t do WW. That’s too much stuff to
      keep track of for me! I lost 30# and 3 dress sizes JUST counting
      carbs. I would have quit if I had to do fat, fiber, protein, WW!
      AND I would still be FAT! 30# and 3 full dress sizes in my first 90 days! I maintain at a size 4/6!  Macros? No way!

      • Marge, can’t wait to try this bread. I too am only counting carbs(just started) how many carbs do you do a day (is it 20 or less)? Thanks again!

        • Hi Donna!
          Everyone loves this bread and sandwich! I love mixing it up with
          different cheeses, adding bacon, a thin slice of tomato, etc!
          Yes, I try to stick to less than 20 NET carbs per day! Glad to have
          you on board! You’ll do great! I encourage you to join the Low Carb
          Challenge group
          too! It’s a GREAT bunch that are very helpful 24/7!

    • Hi Annette!

      The bread recipe is 2 net carbs. However you decide to split it, etc.
      is up to you. If you eat it all it’s 2 net carbs. I split mine so I
      made the sandwich you see pictured at the top of the page.
      p.s. remember to add in the cheese and any other ingredients you opt to add… and ENJOY!

    • You can try Kate but I cannot guarantee it’ll turn out.
      Coconut flour reacts differently than almond, it is more drying.
      That’s why you sometimes see a recipe with a lot of almond and
      just a little coconut flour. It’s to keep the resulting baked goods
      from staying too “wet.”

      Hope this helps! If you try it out I would love to hear your experience!
      Please leave another comment or hop over to the Facebook group and share!

    • Hi Chuck!
      I just updated the recipe to make that more understandable.
      The melted butter goes into making the bread, the softened
      butter is spread on the outside of the sandwich when you grill it.
      I hope that help! ~Marge

  3. I’ve tried making the bread twice and it tastes great, but I’m getting hollowed out areas/holes in the finished product when it comes out of the microwave. So when I slice it, it has holes. I can’t make a sandwich 🙁 Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? My hubbie is eating it all cut up with syrup and cinnamon so it’s not a total loss 🙂

  4. Thank you SOOO very much for this recipe! This has helped me curb cravings for sandwiches and french toast so many time times. I also used it as a base for a FABULOUS near perfect “cinnamon bun” with cream cheese frosting. NOTHING beats this recipe. Thank you!

    • Thank YOU Tina for taking the time to let me know how much you like it!
      It’s hard sometimes working alone! I appreciate your taking the time to
      light up my day!

      Thanks Again!

  5. Grilled two pieces and toasted the other two. The are all AAAMAZING!…thank you so much for sharing. I now can enjoy my favorite. BLT.

  6. Was surprised how easy this was to make. I am still trying to get used to the “eggy” texture of things made with cocunut flour. Not sure that I am a fan yet. This was not too bad with the egginess. My only real issue was cutting this into four slices. I could only get two out of it. Thanks for the recipe. I think the longer I’m on low-carb, the more I will appreciate this.

  7. Marge~Just made this last night. Grandkids had gluten free bread, Hubby had regular and I had low carb. It was fast and easy to make! But best – it tastes fabulous!! Thank you so much for the recipe.

    • You are MOST welcome Brenda! I am thrilled you liked it!
      Hope you stay tuned for more! Better yet, have you subscribed
      to my newsletter (believe me I won’t spam you, on the contrary I get called out
      all the time for not sending them more! LOL) or our Facebook group?
      We would all love to have you!

  8. This is great! Just made a tuna sandwich with this. I like the way it’s easy to make and holds together for a sandwich better than most low carb breads.

  9. Very nice! 🙂 One suggestion though, list how many Watt your Microwave is, as High is a relative term! I’ve tested quite a few recipes the past 2 weeks, and have found out, i can cut a lot of time in my Microwave! I was Roasting Almonds, in Coconut Sugar, and the recipe called for 2 Minutes and 30 Seconds… At 2 Minutes, the Sugar got so hot, it burned through my Bowl :O So no matter the recipe, and no matter the Microwave Watt, it is a goos choice, to start out with less time, and then check for results…

    • Thanks Ole! I am glad you like the recipe!

      I use a brand new, large, high wattage microwave.
      If anything someone using a lower wattage microwave might have to add time
      but you should not have to stop it sooner.

      Enjoy your grilled cheese! Have you tried the 3-Minute 3-Carb Ham and Cheese?
      It can also be translated into a grilled cheese as I do that all the time.

      Thanks again!

  10. I do not use a microwave and searched the comments for a way to make it using an oven. I did not find one so I winged it. Mixed the ingredients and baked it in glass dish for 20 minutes (I did not preheat oven) at 400 degrees. The only problem I had was it stuck to the dish. I sprayed it with a Misto beforehand. I think I will try parchment paper next time . It came out great. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. Absolutely delicious!! I’ve been low carb for almost 3 years. I’m excited I found this and look forward to eating “sandwiches” again. Thanks!

So... what's YOUR take on this?
