Bell pepper sandwiches have been trending on TikTok for quite some time now. Bell peppers are the perfect vessel for any low-carb fillings you can imagine, and I've been busy creating more delicious recipes so you never get bored with the same keto meals.
Bell peppers are not just low in carbs, they are a fantastic source of vitamin C! In this recipe 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.
A word of advice though. I never eat them pressed together like sandwiches. It's way more practical (and less messy) if you eat the stuffed pepper halves separately. They may look prettier pressed together when you cut through them but it's not easy to eat them that way.
