There are a lot of different ways to make a keto breakfast sandwich. My version includes bacon, egg, and cheese.
Keto crescent roll dough
The most important ingredient is the keto crescent roll. Use my keto crescent roll bread recipe to make your own.
It is made with low-carb and gluten-free food ingredients.
Add your favorite kind of egg to the sandwich. I used a fried egg because it stays on the sandwich better, making for a less messy breakfast sandwich.
Next, add a slice of your favorite type of cheese. Sharp cheddar cheese is the most popular type to use on breakfast sandwiches.
Whenever you use bacon on a keto diet, always use bacon that doesn't have any added sweeteners or sugar, including maple bacon.
Either salted or unsalted butter will work in this recipe. You'll use the butter to create a non-stick surface, so the fried egg doesn't stick to the frying pan.
If you can't have dairy, you can always use ghee or coconut oil instead of butter.
Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
- Remove grease from the bacon. Drain the cooked bacon on a paper towel before you add it to your sandwich.
- Prepare the baking sheet. Bake the crescent rolls on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, so they don't stick.
- Serve keto breakfast sandwich hot. These sandwiches taste best when they are hot and with freshly melted cheese.
These keto breakfast sandwiches are super easy to make! All it takes is baking the crescent rolls and then assembling the sandwiches.
Bake the crescent rolls
First, bake the crescent rolls. Roll out the dough and shape them into iconic crescent shapes.
Set them aside while you make the rest of the sandwich pieces.
Fry the bacon
Use either a cast-iron skillet or electric skillet to fry your bacon. Set it aside on a paper towel and let the grease drain from the bacon.
Fry the eggs
Next, make the fried eggs. Melt some butter in the skillet instead of using non-stick spray.
To keep your egg the perfect size for your sandwiches, use a metal cookie cutter or mason jar lid ring as a mold. Let the eggs fry inside of the rings.
Cook your eggs over medium heat. This allows the eggs to cook without burning.
Layer the sandwiches
Add the cooked egg, bacon, and cheese to your crescent rolls.
At this point, you can choose to add your favorite spread or eat it just like it is.
This keto sandwich is really easy to customize, so have fun with different spices, types of breakfast protein, or flavors of bread.

Keto Starbucks Double Smoked Bacon Breakfast Sandwich
- 1 batch keto crescent roll dough
- 4 large eggs
- 4 Slices of Cheddar cheese
- 4 Slices thick cut smoked bacon
- 2 Tbsp. Butter
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Divide the crescent roll dough into two even sections.
- Roll one section out into a rectangular shape, and cut triangles from the dough as directed in the original recipe. Roll the triangles into crescent shapes, and then join the ends to form a circular crescent. Flatten each circular crescent a bit with the palm of your hand. These will serve as the tops to your sandwich buns.
- Roll the other half of the dough into a rectangle, and use a small circular cookie cutter to cut circles from the dough to serve as the sandwich bun bottoms.
- Place the tops and bottoms of the buns onto a parchment lined baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
- While the buns are baking, cook the bacon until crispy.
- Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat, and place metal egg molds or metal jar lids into the skillet. Lightly beat each egg, and pour it into one of the molds. Flip the eggs when solid inside the mold, and continue to cook until done to your liking.
- Top the flat portion of each bun with one of the eggs, a slice of bacon cut in half, and a slice of cheddar cheese.
- Add a top to each sandwich and serve.
