How Long Does it Take to Make a Keto Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

This isn’t the quickest sandwich there is to make, but I assure you, the time it takes to make this one will be worth it.  It takes about 20 minutes to prep the ingredients and a total of about 60 minutes of cooking time.

How Many Carbs Are in Keto Grilled Cheese?

This keto version of the classic sandwich is on the higher side on the carb scale, so you may have to adjust other meals throughout the day if you enjoy one, but they are still just 8 net carbs per serving so they can easily fit into your macros.

An average grilled cheese sandwich comes in at over 30 net carbs each, so this one is by far the better choice.

This recipe makes 4 servings.

What to do With Leftover Grilled Cheese?

Grilled cheese sandwiches are better when served right as they are done, however they can be stored for 3-4 days in an airtight container in the fridge. When you are ready to enjoy your sandwich, reheat it in a skillet on low heat.
