Keto & Low Carb Sandwich and Coleslaw


One of the perks of being a New Yorker is having some amazing Deli's right in my neighborhood. I used to love to go early in the morning for some fresh sesame seed covered bread and cold cuts. I would slather the bread with mayo and pile on the meats and cheese.

Now that I am doing a ketogenic diet bread is a no-go so I started rolling the meat and cheese together and eating it that way. I got kind of tired of eating it this way and craved some bread. The oopsie rolls came to the rescue again when I decided to make some sandwiches with them. First I make the coleslaw and let it sit in the refrigerator. Then I make the oopsie rolls and let them cool. Spread some mayo onto two of the oopsie rolls and assemble my sandwich. This time I used hard salami and lacey swiss cheese.


Coleslaw (Serves 2)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cabbage 
  • 1 tblsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tblsp avocado oil (you can substitute any oil you like) 
  • 1 tblsp apple cider vinegar (I love the Organic Braggs brand)
  • 2 drops liquid stevia
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients except for the cabbage until completely combined and creamy. 
  2. Toss the cabbage with the dressing. Make sure all of the cabbage is evenly coated. 
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. It tastes better when you let it sit in the fridge overnight. 

Oopsie Rolls (Makes 12 halves or 6 sandwich rolls)
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 4 ounces of cream cheese 
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar 
  • sesame seeds
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. 
  2. In a large bowl add the egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat together until stiff peaks form. 
  3. In a medium bowl add the egg yolks and cream cheese. Beat together until it looks like cake batter. 
  4. Spoon some of the egg yolk mixture on top of the egg white mixture and carefully fold together. Continue to add the egg yolk mixture until it is completely mixed, being careful not to lose volume. 
  5. To make the rolls round and uniform I use two whoppie pie pans. Carefully spoon into the two pans. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes and then alternate the pans and bake for another 15 minutes. 
  7. Let cool and then store in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. 

What's your favorite sandwich?
