I have been missing bread doing my low-carb diet. But I have found a wonderful alternative and a great recipe for a low-carb grilled cheese sandwich. True, it doesn't look like much, but this little sandwich makes me happy and it has only 5 net carbs.
The "bread" recipe is inspired by the muffin in a minute recipes (muffins that are made in the microwave).
1/4 cup milled flax seed
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 of a 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp butter
Stir the dry ingredients. Then add butter and egg. Mix well. Pour in microwave safe dish (square if you can). Cook in microwave for 1 minute. Slice bread lengthwise and continue with the regular grilled cheese making steps. (Except I don't use any more butter.) I also use fat-free cheese and add chia seeds to the mix as well. I'm going to try a version with just egg white to cut down on the fat as well. Try it. It's actually pretty tasty.
