Ketocuisine to the rescue. Ketocuisine is a powdered fat baking mix designed especially for the Ketogenic diet. Owen was also quite insistent that his bread be bread shaped. I spent months trying to pour out the bread dough and shape it into a rectangle I could cut in half to make bread until my In-laws gave us this wonderful rectangle silicone mold. Now, I just make the recipe a little thinner and pour it into the mold.

Keto Cheese Sandwich
3.06:1 ratio, 265 calories
8g Egg (raw, mixed well)
17g Cheese, Tillamook Cheddar
6g Mayonnaise, Hellman's/Best Foods
20g Ketocuisine 5:1 ratio baking mix
I also add a pinch of Morton's lite salt as a potassium supplement, a pinch of baking soda to combat acidosis, and a crushed K Phos neutral tablet (all prescribed by our keto team)
First I weigh out the egg since it is the most difficult to get to the nearest gram, then weigh out and add the other ingredients except for the cheese. Mix well adding water to get to the right consistency(doughy if you are spreading it or just pourable if using molds). Sorry, but I've never measured out the water. It's so nice to have something that doesn't have to be weighed that I've never done it. Then spread out the dough into two pieces or pour into molds (the molds I use make 4 pieces of bread) and bake at 350F for about 15 min. Watch it closely since fatty keto foods tend to cook quickly ( I ruined 2 batches of spinach bites this weekend, not watching them closely enough). Once they have cooled enough to handle put the cheese between two pieces of bread and serve or wrap up and store in the fridge for another day.
Note to those not on the Ketogenic diet, It is very important to use only the brands listed in the recipe. If I use a different mayonnaise, I have to redo the whole recipe. I also did not receive any compensation from Solace Nutrition for naming their product although if they wanted to send me some I'd gladly take it. It is just a product we use that makes our lives much easier!
