low carb bread

low carb microwave bread

This low-carb microwave bread is a compromise. It’s not true bread, of course – it’s soft and a little eggy. But if you’re trying to control your carbs, or need to avoid gluten, this microwave bread adds a nice variety to breakfast and lunch. The “bread” is ready in less than five minutes, and has a spongy texture that readily soaks up butter, honey or jam. It’s also good topped with cream cheese and smoked salmon, or with mustard and ham. Click for the recipe

Oopsie Rolls

They’re called oopsie rolls because they were first made by mistake, but what a fortunate mistake that was! Oopsie rolls are almost-zero-carb “rolls” that are flourless and gluten-free, and they are all over the low-carb blogosphere, so of course I had to try them. While not truly bread – oopsie rolls are softer and spongier and are more like a thick savory crepe in texture – they can definitely fill a void for someone who misses sandwiches, or holding a burger in their hands.

Their texture is actually fairly similar to spongy white bread or bun, and their taste is neutral, so they can go with either savory dishes (sandwiches, burgers) or dessert (just like crepes, you could fill them with whipped cream and berries). My only complaint is that oopsie rolls are on the delicate side and tear quite easily, so using them as a bun substitute for a burger is even messier than usual. Click for the recipe
