This fun, grain-free bread recipe has been floating around the internet.  It sounded a little..well…dull, so I decided to add grated parmesan cheese—which really perked up the taste!

I made the whole recipe (view here), first. Then after I put the first 6 spoons on the cookie sheet, I added 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese to the remaining batter. It quickly  began to deflate the mixture, so I didn’t stir it much and got the spoonfuls on the baking sheet. I taste tested both recipes, and liked each of them!

You can sprinkle herbs on the spoonful drops while on the baking sheet also.

Next Day Breakfast Idea: High Protein Scrambled Egg Sandwich

So I decided to try a scrambled egg sandwich. The cloud bread had softened a little, so I reheated in the oven for a few minutes. Watch carefully though, they brown quickly! I didn’t know what would happen if I put these in my toaster. I then added some spinach to the scrambled eggs and had my (delicious) high protein, low-carb breakfast sandwich.

Alternately, you can eat the cloud bread on the side.
