You’ll love this Gluten free cloud bread made out of eggs and cream cheese from the Gluten free food shop 🙂
I saw this recipe a while ago and just thought “I have to try that”, what with Christmas having been and gone, I have only just gotten round to it
This particular bread replacement is virtually carb free and very high in protein, it is called Cloud read because its just like Heaven.
Prep time: 20 mins – Cooking time: 30 mins on the middle rack – eating time…I’ll leave that up to you, serves 6.
Oven temp 300°f | 150°c | Gas Mark 2
- 3 eggs, separated
- 3 tbsp 4% cottage cheese (can also use cream cheese with the option of using flavours like Herb and Garlic )
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 1gm packet of sweetener
Separate the eggs very carefully, there must be no yolk in the white.
- In one bowl add Cream of Tartar to the egg whites and beat the whites on high speed until they are fluffy and form nice peaks.
- In a mixing bowl, mix together the egg yolks, the Cottage Cheese and the packet of Sweetener until smooth.
- Very carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until mixed, but try and not break down the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
- Spray two baking sheets with one of the Olive Oil sprays like Frylight or other fat-free cooking spray.
- With a large spoon, “scoop” the mixture into 6 even rounds on the sheets (about the size of the top-half of the McDonalds hamburger bun; roughly 3/4 inch thick and 4 to 5 inches across).
Bake on the middle rack. Here is when you have to watch them, because the cooking time the same on any two batches. It is somewhere around 25 minutes to 1/2 hour, but it could be less or more. You just need to watch them until them become nice and golden brown (again, the color of a McDonalds bun).
- Remove from the pans and cool on a rack or cutting board.
While warm they are crumbly and similar to cooked meringue – but don’t let this fool you! Once completely cool, seal them in a tupperware container over night. They will totally change their consistency, to something much more like bread – a softer texture that is nice and chewy. If you do not like softer chewy bread, then eat them as they are, nice and crisp.
And Because the sides that were facing down on the baking sheet are perfectly flat, you use these to spread things on, or make sandwiches, or even as a burger bun!
The choice is up to you, and you will be quite amazed at how much like a bun these really are!
