Making low carb simple

Instructions

Cloud bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).

  2. Separate the eggs, with egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another. Note, egg whites whip better in a metal or ceramic bowl as opposed to plastic.

  3. Whip egg whites together with salt (and cream of tartar, if you are using any) until very stiff, preferably using a hand held electric mixer. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.

  4. In the bowl with the egg yokes, add the cream cheese, psyllium husk, and baking powder and mix well.

  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture — try to keep the air in the egg whites.

  6. Place two dollops of the mixture per serving on a paper-lined baking tray. Spread out the circles with a spatula to about ½ inch (1 cm) thick pieces.

  7. Bake in the middle of the oven forabout 25 minutes, until they turn golden.

Building the BLT

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet on medium high heat until crispy.

  2. Place the cloud bread pieces top-side down.

  3. Spread mayonnaise on each bread.

  4. Place lettuce, tomato and fried bacon in layers between the bread halves.

Tomato tip

Some of the best slicing heirloom tomatoes are Beefsteak, Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, and Black Krim. Watch for these at your local farmers' market for a BLT upgrade!

How to store cloud bread

The bread keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Put a layer of parchment paper between each bread so they don't stick together. That way you can easily grab as many as you need.

You can thaw frozen cloud bread at room temperature or in the fridge. They taste their very best if you toast them once thawed but you can also reheat them in the oven. Preheat to 300°F (150°C) and place them on the rack for about five minutes.

Meal prep

Feel free to make large batches of Cloud bread ahead of time so you can make this delicious sandwich in no time. You can also prepare bacon in large batches and keep ready made in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to a week (as if bacon ever lasted that long, huh?). Perfect for a snack or to use as a salad topping, to add to your morning eggs or to a sandwich like this one.

How about mayo?

We think homemade mayo beats store bought versions any day but sometimes you just don't have the time, energy or ingredients to make it yourself. The ones you buy in the supermarkets can vary in quality. Read the labels and try to steer clear of brands using sugar.

    Cloud Bread is super tasty, and even though I didn't nail the mayo, the combination of flavors and textures is delicious!

    I have looked at the instructions for the Cloud Bread a dozen times and so have my room mates and we cannot see what the egg yolk mixture is???? Here it is copied:

    "Separate the eggs, with egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another. Note, egg whites whip better in a metal or ceramic bowl as opposed to plastic.
    Whip egg whites together with salt (and cream of tartar, if you are using any) until very stiff, preferably using a hand held electric mixer. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
    Add cream cheese, psyllium husk and baking powder and mix well.
    Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture"

    What goes in to the egg yolks?

    Here's the link to just the Cloud Bread recipe. The steps are worded a little differently, and more clearly (which I'll let the Recipe Team know!). Take a look at step 3.

    Terrible instructions. What is “egg yolk mixture”. You didn’t say what to mix it with. Also, how are we to keep the air in the whites trying to mix cream cheese in? It’s too thick. Did you perhaps mean to add a step? Say, mix yolks and cream cheese? I am a chef so I will do that because I know how food works but seriously why are these instructions unclear?

    Most Americans buy measuring spoons in a set that includes 1 Tablespoon, 1 teaspoon, 1/2 teaspoon, 1/4 teaspoon. When you instruct HALF a Tablespoon it either gets misread as half a teaspoon or you send beginner cooks to conversion tables to discover that 1 Tablespoon= 3 Teaspoons and then the diligent cooks know to use 1 1/2 teaspoons. There is no standard measuring spoon that is exactly 1/2 a Tablespoon. When you change the recipe to reflect mixing yolks with cheese you may want to change psyllium husk powder measurement

    .............Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you want, add the psyllium seed husk and baking powder (this makes it more bread-like)..................

    Can this recipe work with goat cheese to make it dairy-free? Has anyone tried it?

    It has not been tested with goat cheese, but you could give it a try.

    Eggs, cream cheese, bacon and mayonnaise will all contribute calories.

    Hi,
    My partner & I just finished eating this. It was absolutely delicious. I would be proud to present this to a guest! We are raw beginners to Keto eating, so this was a fantastic start. Every day that passes we will be decreasing our carbs while still eating well. This evening we will have seafood "pasta". Looking forward to it.
    Thanks a million.
    Gerry.

    can psyllium husk powder be substituted with something else (say, Xanthan gum or flax seed powder)?

    Unfortunately there is not always a good substitute for psyllium. We have not tested this recipe with alternate ingredients.

    Watery egg whites can be a sign of being overbeaten. Beat the egg whites until the just form stiff peaks, not beyond.

    I am sorry the bread fell apart. You may have needed to make them a little thicker or baked them a little bit longer.

    They were quite thick so I ended up baking them for 35 minutes until very brown but they were still very soft. Going to try and toast the leftovers to see if it improves it.

    concerning the cloud bread recipe. My guess is everyone buys premade food. People don't cook for themselves. 😏

    For lighter cloud bread, make sure to whip the eggs well and fold gently. There may be a bit of an eggy taste before adding toppings or filling.

    Just made cloud bread and it was great, been hanging out for a BLT for ages but mine should have been called BLS I used spinach instead of lettuce as wanted to use up the last of my spinach before it wilted. I also spread avocado on it but forgot to put mayo on . Think it will be even better next time also if I make some in advance then toast it before making it up. Yes the pysillium husk does make the bread purple but who cares, it tastes fine. I must say it has rekindled my love of cooking from scratch but I am lucky I have the free time to do that, not many other mothers do. To all the other mothers out there that are juggling work, kids, ill elderly parents and or covid hang in there you have got this
