Think you can’t have delicious sandwiches while eating Keto?
Think again! Try making this mouthwatering chicken, bacon, and avocado salad sandwich on a keto roll slathered with spicy sriracha mayo! The result is a hearty and delicious sandwich that’ll be sure to satisfy any bread craving! I made my rolls, then set up a station of shredded rotisserie chicken and all the fixings for everyone to build their own sandwich.
I love that this is such a simple idea and the sandwich reminds me of a yummy, upgraded BLT.
Homemade keto rolls ROCK!
I made these sandwiches with the perfect keto-friendly rolls that are actually featured in THIS post for Homemade Keto Bagels. Start by making a batch of the dough, but instead of making bagel shapes, flatten six balls of dough on a baking sheet. Once baked, slice in half to make sandwiches. So good! I bet these would make great hamburger buns, too.
While the bread recipe makes enough for six sandwiches, this recipe (and its macros) are for one sandwich.
Chicken Bacon and Avocado Salad Sandwich on a Keto Roll
yield: 1 SERVINGS
prep time: 15 MINUTES
cook time: 20 MINUTES
total time: 35 MINUTES
Layer avocado slices with chicken and bacon for a delicious sandwich served on a keto roll.
For the Rolls:
- 1 1/2 cups super-fine almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 2 oz. cream cheese
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- sesame and poppy seeds for topping, as needed
For the Sandwiches:
- 1 homemade keto roll
- 1 teaspoon mayonnaise
- 1 dash sriracha sauce
- 3 oz. chicken cooked, and shredded
- 1 slice bacon, cooked
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 2 avocado slices
For the Rolls: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix almond flour and baking powder in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese together in the microwave for 2 minutes. Stop at the one minute mark, stir cheeses, and return for another minute in microwave.
Stir together beaten eggs, cheeses, and flour mixture into a dough. (I used my stand mixer to do this, but you can also mix by hand. The more you mix, the less sticky the dough becomes.)
Cut dough ball into 6 sections. Roll each into a ball, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet or silicone lined baking sheet. Flatten with palm of hand a little to spread out.
Press poppy seeds and sesame seeds on top of rolls as desired.
Bake for 12-14 minutes at 400 degrees until golden brown.
For the Sandwiches: Cut rolls in half lengthwise. Mix together a teaspoon of mayo with a dash of Sriracha sauce and spread onto roll.
Build sandwich by adding avocado, chicken, bacon, cheese, and tomato.
Place back in oven for a few minutes if you'd like to melt the cheese. (Mine was melted enough on warm rolls from the oven, yum!)

Now here’s a crowd-pleasing sandwich!
Crispy bacon with the avocado and that yummy bread tastes fantastic! I loved the spicy mayo, too. Really everything about this idea is enjoyable, and I’ll be making these keto sandwiches again for sure!
I didn’t have high expectations for these rolls, but haven’t had bread in months and was dying for some kind of sandwich. I thought they would taste overly cheesy and/or eggy, but they didn’t….very bread-like in both taste and texture! Made this chicken avocado salad for filling https://natashaskitchen.com/avocado-chicken-salad-recipe/ minus the corn. So delicious, filling and satisfying….great to enjoy a sandwich again! Looking forward to trying pizza next.
Nice to hear Lisa! You will love the pizza!
We have used these rolls for hamburgers and they work perfectly. So yummy! I can’t wait to try them with this upgraded BLT! Thanks!
Great! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Lina. Even though we are not full blown Keto here, I am always looking for quick, easy & light lunch & dinner recipes. My keto rolls never seem to come out right, and I was getting frustrated til I found an even easier way to make ‘keto bread’, and it’s perfect since it’s for 1.
In a coffee mug, mix 3 TBSP Almond Flour (or 1 TBSP + 1 TBSP Coconut Flour) with 1 TBSP Melted Butter (or coconut oil). 1/2 tsp Baking Powder and 1 Egg, beaten (I have found that big eggs can make it ‘eggy’ tasting, so I just use the egg white on those) Microwave for 60-90 seconds. Let cool, then remove (use a butter knife and run along the side, and it slides out). Slice in half and TOAST in toaster so it gets the crunchy bread texture!
The coffee mug makes it more like the shape of an English muffin. I have not tried, but you could probably add mozz cheese & herbs to the batter as well to flavor it up.
Thanks for sharing!!
Mel, what would the nutritional value be for that?
Have you ever tried to bake this into a loaf? If so, did it turn out okay?
Hi Nikki! Great question. We have not tried it this way. However, this particular dough could turn out on the dense side & may not rise if it was made into a loaf. For this reason, I personally believe it’s better in smaller batches. We do have a great bread recipe though❤ Hope this helps!
What happens if you add yeast to the rolls?
Hi Lorna! We haven’t done that. Let us know how it turns out if you give it a try!
