Keto Open Faced Sandwich with Turkey Leftovers

Keto Open Faced Sandwich with Turkey Leftovers

I hope that you had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving! Now that it’s over, the best is still yet to come. What’s that? Leftovers, of course! This Keto Open Faced Sandwich with Turkey Leftovers recipe is aimed at using any leftover turkey you may have on hand. Personally, I am crazy about bread. My husband isn’t so much. However, after making this recipe, he stated he could eat this all day, everyday. The bread is airy, cheesy, and firm. It has a crust, yet it’s very fluffy inside. I opted to go with an open faced sandwich with this recipe, but I think I’ll be making significantly more recipes soon, based on the foundation of this bread.

Insulin for Keto Open Faced Sandwich with Turkey Leftovers:

I love that with my keto bread, I took 1/3 of the amount of insulin I’d take for ‘normal’ bread. Actually, considering how much I ate, I probably took closer to 1/4 of the amount! The keto version is obviously far better for me. Sometimes I’ll hear of others being tired after eating lunch. After lunch, I was energized! We ate double the servings of this recipe, since my husband and I intermittent fast. I did state this could serve 4 for a nice lunch, which I think is also fine if you’re planning to eat dinner, etc. Definitely do what makes sense for you based on your macros!

Protein Powder for Open Faced Sandwiches:

With this recipe, I used Perfect Keto Protein Powder (unflavored). Note you can find this protein powder here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072KFZ9TQ/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B072KFZ9TQ&linkCode=as2&tag=ambersketokit-20&linkId=f673384ef5ffa1d3b3de6d55cd31e956

I also used Egg White Protein Powder: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XF5GT2G/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B06XF5GT2G&linkCode=as2&tag=ambersketokit-20&linkId=3191ba6a91f404ceb561da08fb200003

As I stated in another post, I tend to avoid whey protein powders, as it causes blood sugar issues for me personally. I also find that Keto Protein Powder provides one of the best bread textures. You could easily double the amount of Keto Protein Powder and not use any Egg White Protein Powder.

Cheese Substitutes:

I used Dubliner cheese for the bread, largely because it was what I had on hand. You could really use any cheese, though: cheddar, goat, mozzarella, asiago, etc.

Making Bread via Open Faced Sandwiches/Options:

I used a silicone mold to form my bread. Specifically, I used this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VQ8EF6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000VQ8EF6&linkCode=as2&tag=ambersketokit-20&linkId=afb3cb00bf5eeef9ebb8202be494adb8

You can use another silicone shape, if you don’t have time to get that. Otherwise, you could use a standard loaf pan! I’ve made a similar version of this recipe using a loaf pan and it turned out great.

I hope you make these open faced sandwiches soon and enjoy them as much as we did!
