Cucumber Sandwich Bites
Have you ever heard recipes with names that were literally true? Forget bread, it’s keto 2019, and we don’t require bread to make a tasty sandwich any longer! I hollowed a cucumber and put together a filling with deli-cut roast meat, turkey and pastrami, as well as provolone cheese, and a bit of the most delicious mayonnaise I’ve ever tasted throughout my lifetime.
So Why No Bread?
Jo You might be thinking, what do you think of bread? It’s nothing really, I love bread. I enjoy the smell and texture, and the softness on the inside , and that crispy crust on the outside. However, I’ve been trying to cut down on carbs this year to live a keto diet and show my taste buds that they can be equally content by eating meals that are full of vegetables and protein! I’m pretty sure I’ve succeeded with these bites of cucumber!

Notes and tips:
This recipe can be stored in the refrigerator inside an airtight container up to 3-4 days. I would not recommend making this dish in advance because the cucumber loses some of its structural strength as it melts. Therefore, make this dish several days in advance and enjoy fresh!
