My family always tells me that much like my dad’s mother, I try to make a sandwich out of everything. They’re not wrong! I would say that 85% of my 34 years on this planet have been divided up in to two categories; The first as with most young men is woman, how to understand them, attract them and so on.
The second is what can I put on a sandwich, or what I could use to make a sandwich.
In my life I’ve had them all, from Amish Friendship Bread to Zucchini bread, and I’ve tried to make a sandwich from it. I’m not talking about the pedestrian sandwich on a hotdog bun because you didn’t go to the store. I’m not gonna take credit for making sandwiches out of bagels, English muffins, or even donuts like they do in minor league stadiums. I can tell you that I’ve cut a bran muffin in half and stacked it high with sausage, egg, and cheese……It got a lot of stuff moving…..
All this makes it no surprise that Keto is damn hard for me. So how does a breadhead like me survive in a no bread world? Look to the heavens on a cloudy day for your inspiration. That’s where cloud bread comes in. So you say, what the F*** is cloud bread? Like most keto recipes, it takes time but is simple and well worth it.
So what do you need to get it done?
4 eggs (separated)
2 oz. Cream cheese (softened)
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
Herbs & Spices to taste
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 300°
STEP 2: Start out by separating the eggs, place egg whites in stand mixer. Add cream of tartar and whip to stiff peaks.
STEP 3: Whip cream cheese, egg yolks and, herbs in stand mixer. Whip till light and fluffy.
STEP 4: STOP!!!! THIS IS WHERE WE GET DIFFICULT. Have you ever made a souffle? This is when you gently fold the two mixtures together. You must make sure not to over fold and burst the bubbles.
STEP 5: Using a 1/4 cup to scoop mixture on to lined baking sheet.
STEP 6: Bake for 25 minutes and let cool. This mixture made 10 slices of “bread”
ENJOY! The cloud bread can be stored in the fridge for a few days but best eaten sooner.
I’m going to make this better. The inconsistency of the way the bread spread out makes making a sandwich very difficult. My next run will be done with a silicone baking mold.
