Keto Zucchini Crusted Grilled Cheese Sandwiches – Low Carb Lunch

How to make Grilled Cheese !!

These zucchini grilled cheese are healthier and have less carbs than traditionally grilled cheese sandwiches, similar to zucchini pizza crust by using a zucchini “bread”.

I am In love with the zucchini crust. I think even more than cauliflower crust I may actually like it. because you don’t need to dry out the zucchini quite, it’s easier and faster to make, as much as you do for cauliflower.

While they were good, to work with the cauliflower crust was a little delicate. A little bit of flour added to the zucchini crust and that holds together very well it makes for a much sturdier bread.

I kept it ultra-thin When I made the zucchini crust for pizza. For these sandwiches, so that they can substitute for sandwich bread I made the crust thicker.

It was time to assemble my sandwiches once the breads were done. Not to just gobble up the zucchini crust straight out of the oven, It took a lot of willpower. They looked so crispy and warm and smelled great. Slather the bread with butter and/or mayonnaise to keep things healthier, I simply added the cheese and then to melt the cheese I broiled these.
