These low-carb bell pepper sandwiches are the perfect zero effort lunch option. You can prep and pack them in just a few minutes using a few common ingredients.
Inspired by the latest TikTok trends, these bell peppers are stuffed with cream cheese, everything bagel seasoning, ham, cheese, radishes and crispy bacon.
I used green bell peppers because they are less sweet and better for sandwiches, and they contain fewer carbs than red, orange or yellow bell peppers. Either way, any bell peppers will be great in this recipe and will still keep it low in carbs.
Don't have ready-made everything bagel seasoning? You can easily make your own by mixing the following ingredients:
- 1 1/2 tbsp poppy seeds
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp onion flakes
- 1 tsp garlic flakes
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Finally, a word of advice before you serve these bell pepper sandwiches. It's much easier if you serve the bell pepper halves separately rather than pressing the halves together and then cutting in half. It may look prettier (just like on these photos) but it's not practical. If you tried eating them pressed together, you know how messy it can get!
