This quick and easy, low-carb sandwich bread may actually have made me the happiest woman on the planet — at least for the moment. It’s bready, chewy, and you make it in two minutes in the microwave.
I know, I know… I am the microwave queen when it comes to low-carb but no one else in my family eats this way and I just don’t have time to spend a couple of hours making something for just me. So, the majority of recipes you are going to find here are those that can be made quickly and easily… and for one person.
Bread. I love bread so much. I’ve been making homemade bread since I was 14 and I am about to be 55 so you do the math. It is relaxing and my family loves it. I get to sit there and smile while they eat it and I get to smell it because… carbs. If a carb was a cartoon character it would look like Snidley Whiplash from the 1960s cartoons.
But I digress.
A lot of times when I cave to carbs it is for a simple sandwich. I could live on them. Yes, I am a food writer. Yes, I have written cookbooks and been invited to amazing restaurants. Yes, I can taste that creamy white asparagus soup once and totally copy it right down to the truffle shavings — but a sandwich?
Cajun turkey with lettuce, pickles, grainy mustard, and mayo is my favorite but I am not fussy at all. Fresh, sunripe tomatoes on toast with mayo, BLTs, peanut butter and jelly, Pickles and mayo… the list goes on. I literally used to eat Spagettio sandwiches when I was a little kid.
I love sandwiches.
This low-carb sandwich bread works. Make it in the widest mug you have and then let it cool a little before you slice it. I was able to slice it into 4 rounds which made 2 sandwiches — very filling sandwiches. The bread soaked up just enough of the mustard, mayo, and pickle juice to make it perfect.
And it didn’t get soggy.
There’s only one thing better than a sandwich. It’s a perfect piece of toast and, my dear friends, this low-carb sandwich bread makes toast.
I was so excited I checked Amazon for the one thing that would make my life truly complete now that I could eat sandwiches and toast — Low-carb orange marmalade. Like Paddington I have an addiction to marmalade and I have had exactly two tablespoons in the past four years. Two.
