Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).
Brush both sides of the low-carb bread slices with melted butter and arrange them on a baking tray. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are toasted and slightly crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with salt until well combined. Add chopped parsley, grated parmesan, and unsweetened almond milk. Whisk until the mixture is smooth.
Place 6 slices of the toasted bread in the bottom of a greased baking dish. Top each slice with a piece of your chosen keto-friendly cheese.
Pour half of the egg mixture over the bread and cheese.
Add a layer of cooked bacon slices and shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each slice.
Place the remaining 6 slices of toasted bread on top of the bacon and cheese. Press down slightly to compact the layers.
Carefully flip the assembled toasts so that the top layer is now on the bottom.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, switch to the grill/broil setting and grill for an additional 10 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly.
Remove from the oven, let it cool for a minute or two, and then slice into servings.
Enjoy your keto and low-carb cheesy breakfast toasts! Each serving is approximately 3g net carbs and makes for a delicious, satisfying breakfast or brunch option.
