Today a combo of Jasmine, Lemon, Lime, and Orange trees are blowing through my house. It is a lovely thing to wake up to each morning, but I have said that before. I know I am being repetitive, but I cannot get over how blessed we are to live here!
As you know my daughter turned 19 a couple weeks ago. In a few months she will be moving out into her first apartment. So as time creeps closer, I am trying to come up with more affordable ways for her to eat. I am still going to be cooking for her once a week, but in the meantime, I need to teach her ways to survive gluten free on a budget. One of the things she needs are bread substitutes. I wanted to come up with an easy bun for her to make that does not have a ton of ingredients. This bread has 4 ingredients and makes the perfect hamburger bun or sandwich bread. It was so simple to make. I threw it together in no time. I made her a ham and cheese sandwich and she said it was perfect.
My Best friend from Oregon is also visiting. She has type 1 Diabetes. So with that in mind I wanted to come up with a basically carb free bread. SUCCESS! We tried this out on her and her daughter and they both said it was better than regular white bread. You have to try it. It is not hard at all to make. It stores nicely in the fridge in between parchment paper. It is even really really good with peanut butter and jelly!
Gluten Free Grain Free Cloud Bread
adapted from Food.com
3 eggs, separated
3 tablespoons cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 packet of stevia
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Separate the eggs.
In one bowl, mix together the egg yolks, the 3 Tablespoon Cream Cheese and the one packet of Sweetener until smooth.
In the other bowl add 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat the whites on high speed until they are fluffy and form nice peaks.
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.
Prepare two baking stones or sheets with parchment paper.
With a large spoon, “scoop” the mixture into 8 rounds on the sheets. Bake on the middle rack. Bake them for 30 minutes. They are ready when they are golden brown.
Remove from the stones or sheets and cool.
