So, I finally got serious in the last two weeks with the exercise and weight loss regimen again. (It is so much easier to focus on healthy living when my days are regular and I'm off the road.)
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.
