CLOUD BREAD – an experiment

CLOUD BREAD – an experiment

 

Here I am playing with my food again.  This time it’s to find yet another way of providing my Frenchman with his bread fix.

With no oven on our little boat, I rely heavily on my Omnia stove-top and occasionally to a lesser degree our back-of-the boat barbeque.

Curious about all the ‘Cloud Bread’ recipes floating around, I thought I’d give it a try. Could a base of eggs and cream cheese with no flour really produce bread?

CLOUD BREAD

what you will need

3 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 Tbsp cream cheese (I used peppery Boursin)
1  tsp honey
dried rosemary

whipping into shape

Line the Omnia rack with a circle of parchment or if using a conventional oven a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Mix 3 yolks, cream cheese and honey together until well blended.

Whisk the whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.

Fold yolk mixture into egg white mixture.

Top with a sprinkling of rosemary.

Bake for 25 minutes in a 300 ° preheated conventional oven or covered in your Omnia on low until golden brown.

Although visually the Omnia results weren’t as ‘pretty’ as results from the conventional oven,

…they tasted just a good and made the perfect base for tasty little sandwiches.
