If you’re on TikTok, you’ve likely seen this bell pepper sandwich once or twice. This low carb, high fat sandwich is great for keto and will give you a break from traditional bread! This recipe is a little different from the viral one, as it uses stone ground mustard to add some tang and also adds fresh avocado for another fresh component.
The original Bell Pepper Sandwich recipe calls for everything bagel seasoning, but in real life you can just use sesame seeds and Dan-O’s. Everything seasoning is black and white sesame seeds, salt, garlic, and a few other things. Add Dan-O’s and the sesame seeds, and you have everything covered!
As for the mustard, it is nice to have a break from all the fat that goes into this sandwich. If you’re not a fan of mustard, pickles will work just fine. The only thing you have to cook in this sandwich is the bacon, which you can do in the microwave or in advance to make this quickly at lunch. The “cook time” on this recipe is listed for microwaved bacon.
Serve your bell pepper sandwich with salad or a pickle. Enjoy!
