Keto Open Panini Breakfast

Some say keto is very restrictive and does get boring with time. I cannot agree with that. For me keto is an enchanting world of discoveries, not only in terms if science and nutrition, but also in terms if reinventing myself and coming up with recipes that satisfy my very demanding palate and standards.

 

Last weekend I was watching a culinary show on TV, and they were in Italy eating Panini. I instantly though to myself “hummm a toasted, crunchy panino would be so good right now”. So I went to the kitchen and not only made Panini that turned out really good and crispy, but also created toppings that went so well together making it a perfect dish for breakfast or even a main dish.

 

As with all keto mimic foods, you have to be careful not to overdo it, as it can affect weight loss progress when eaten too often or too much.

I hope you all enjoy it, and if you do (venting on its way) please at least rate the recipe or like the post. We recipe creators do not do it  for us, we put a lot of effort and love in sharing our recipes with you, and a like, comment or rate can truly be a reward for us and a sign of appreciation. My last bread recipe got more than 300 views, some of which resulted in people trying the recipe, but zero comments, ratings or even likes. Quite disheartening I might say. (venting closed)

    This breakfast looks delicious and the Panini is such a good idea. I will try it tomorrow, but I will have to substitute something for the almond flour….perhaps sunflower seed flour, or would you suggest something else? Thank you so much for posting this.

      Any nut or seed flour should be ok just different texture and taste. Adjust the liquids of needed
