Low Carb Egg Bread + Sandwich

I'm not usually trying to actively skip carbs. I think they are good for you, depending on the kind and amount. However, this didn't stop me from looking for alternatives to bread and found something pretty amazing.

Low Carb Egg Bread:

For 6 pieces you will need:
  • 2 eggs
  • Aprox. 2 Tbs of Cream cheese
  • Baking Powder
  • Flavoring, Spices (Optional)

The very basic of this recipie are eggs, cream cheese and Baking soda. You could take this recipe in a million directions. You could use a savory, flavored cream cheese (Maybe Herbs or Horseradish) and Spices or just sugar and coco for a sweeter version. I went for a savory version with Tomato Mozzarella Spice (Witch is Salt, Pepper and Rosemary).

Separate the egg-yolk from the egg-white.

Into the egg-yolk mix the cream cheese and spices until it's smoothe. (I also added a splash of Worcestershire Sauce)

In a separate bowl add the Baking Soda to the egg white and beat it untill it is nice and fluffy and firm.

You know it's ready when your egg-white gives you these stiff peaks.

Now slowly fold in the egg-yolk-mix into the egg-white. Sloooowly and bit by bit. You want to keep as much air in the egg-white as possible.

In the end you should have a fluffy awesome batter.

Now spread the batter onto a baking sheet in 6 portions. Use a spoon to push them into somewhat flat, even discs.

Not put them into the preheated oven for 10-15 Minutes at 150°C. Have good eye on them. They burn fast. Just trust your nose when there are done.

After they're baked you get this gorgeous and beautiful gold color. Put your bread onto a cooling rack.

At this point, if you're using Weight Waters, one of these bread slices has 1 ProPoint.

From here you can put whatever you want on them. I went for even more cream cheese (LOVE that stuff), salad, turkey, feta cheese, tomato and tomato puree.

One of these sandwiches, if you use Weight Watchers, only has between 2 to 3 ProPoints.

Sooooo good. But be warned. Do not expect the same fullness as you would get from bread. The fullness comes from what you put on your sandwich. Also: Spice the hell out of your batter!

I hope you enjoyed this recipie as much as I did!

Enjoy and be sexy,
