“No is a complete sentence.”
I finally figured out how to take a picture and get it from my device to my blog! Celebrate with me! I guess this is my Christmas gift to myself and all of my readers who want to see poorly taken photographs. I set the bar low so you’ll feel good about yourself.
Also, just to ease your mind, the plate with the two pieces of breadish disks is not on the floor. I use a potting shed table covered with a piece of plexiglass as an island in my kitchen. Call me crazy, which isn’t all that uncommon.
On to the recipe. It’s mainly a combination of egg and cream cheese which, if you stop there, makes a pseudo pancake batter. With the addition of ground psyllium husk and a bit of baking powder it becomes, not only a little more bread-like, but also an effective laxative. No comment.
4 ounces cream cheese
pinch of salt
1/2 T ground psyllium husk powder, which is 1 1/2 t
1/2 t baking powder
Separate the yolks from the whites and place each of them in their own bowls. Whip the egg whites with the salt until very stiff. The egg whites, not you. Emphasis on very.
Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl. I chose to place the rest of the ingredients into a wide-mouth, pint jar and use my immersible blender stick to do the job.
Pour the egg yolk mixture over the egg whites and gently fold together. Place largish globs of the batter onto a paper-lined baking sheet. This will be 6 or 8 pieces. I used a large ice cream scoop to make sure the portions were about even.
Bake at 300 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until golden.
FULL DISCLOSURE – These darling little breads have a bit of a gritty feel (almost undetectable unless you have a sensitive palate like mine) because of the psyllium powder.
They’re also rather soft but work well in an egg and ham and cheese sandwich when grilled. It fills the little spot in my tummy that’s looking for a bread-like item to eat.
I will continue to work on my picture taking skills.
