Bacon Lettuce and Tomato with Oopsie Bread

Just the mere mention of “BLT” and the clouds start to part! With this mouthwatering, low-carb version, you can dive in and indulge! Go for it!



  • 8 pieces of oopsie breads, see ingredients below.
  • 6 – 8 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4¾ oz. bacon
  • lettuce
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • fresh basil

Oopsie bread

  • 3 eggs
  • 4¼ oz. cream cheese
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tablespoon ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder


Oopsie bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300° F (150° C).
  2. Separate the eggs; put the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
  3. Whip egg whites together with salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  4. Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. To make the oopsie more bread-like, add in the optional psyllium seed husk and baking powder.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture— try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  6. Put 8 oopsies on a paper-lined baking tray.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven at 300° F (150° C) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.

Building the BLT

  1. First, fry the bacon.
  2. Place the oopsie bread pieces top-side down.
  3. Spread 1–2 tablespoon of homemade mayonnaise on each.
  4. Place lettuce, tomato, some finely chopped fresh basil and fried bacon in layers between the bread halves.
  5. Serve immediately.


Some of the best slicing heirloom tomatoes are Beefsteak, Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, and Black Krim. Watch for these at your local farmers’ market for a BLT upgrade!
