After sharing my mother’s Low Carb Bread Recipe a few weeks ago, many variations have been discussed both in the comments and on Facebook. And they all sounded delicious!
The great thing about this bread, versus other low carb bread recipes, is that it’s super easy to make and only takes a few minutes to cook.
And you know me – I’m no Betty Crocker – so this is super easy to make, will only take a few minutes of preparation, and it cooks quickly as well. Depending on your oven, and how you shape the bread, it could be 5-10 minutes, or as long as 15-20. That’s it!
It’s more like a “guilty snack” (minus the guilt) with the crispy, cheesy, sinfully good taste. I usually make them into low carb garlic cheese sticks and dip them in caesar dressing:
But today I decided to try something a little different…
I started with Mom’s original low carb bread recipe:
1 8 ounce bag Sargento parmesan cheese
1 cup Almond Meal
2 small or one very large egg
2 Tablespoons melted butter
…and I like to add Garlic Salt
I only had a 6oz bag of parmesan, so I added in a handful of shredded colby jack too. I had some chopped spinach left over from my breakfast the day before, so I added in several heaping spoonfuls and mixed it in real well.
I preheated the oven to 350, and then shaped them into small round flat pieces. There’s no need to grease the pan because they don’t stick. You want to keep a close eye on them and you may want to flip them after 5 or 10 minutes (depending on your oven). Just to make sure both sides get browned well:
They came out slightly browned, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, with a great cheesy flavor:
I topped them with Tuna Salad for an easy low carb dinner last night. YUM!
I still had plenty of batter left over, so today I made them the same way again, but topped them with mayo and slices of turkey. They made yummy little “sandwich bites” with crisp cheesy bottoms, the spinach baked in, and the mayo just added a nice touch:
I’m going to have some fun with different low carb bread recipes. My next twist will be to add chopped ham to the mix, bake it, then top it with an over-medium egg.
