  • "bread" for grilled cheese?



    I have been really wanting some buttery grilled cheese go to with my hot buttery tomato juice "soup"... and was wondering if anyone had a recipe that would work for me.


    I know there are coconut flour breads that people use for sandwiches... would these work to butter and fry in a pan with cheese, then dip in soup? or would they be weird? I've never made them before so I have no experience with it.


    Thanks in advance! Recipes welcome!

    hmm... i have some coconut bread in the oven now. never made it before so i'm not sure if it's right or not.. the "batter" seemed REALLY thick to me. But we'll see what happens.


    Even if it doesn't work for grilled cheese hopefully it will be good for a snack here and there.

      This isn't a 'sandwich' idea, but this post made think of it.


      I wanted some fried cheese the other (like cheese sticks), but since I'm doing the "carnivore" thing as experiment I didn't want use to any kind of flour.


      So...just put some butter into skillet on high heat, rubbed some seasoning on some strips of cheddar and plopped 'em in there. turned frequently on all sides and kind of crisped an outer later of the cheese.


      was pretty damn tasty.

        yeah i've done cheese crisps in the oven before... really good.

        your thing sounds good too.

        <hr />

        So I made the "bread"... it really didn&#39;t rise much if at all, so it was very short and dense. So I cut off a couple slices and they were more like sticks than slices of bread... in shape i mean. I toasted them in a pan with butter and melted some cheese on one side, but i burned the bottom while i waited for the cheese to melt so i had to cut off the toasty bottom part.


        They were... fine. dipped in the soup and stuff. But nothing special and probably not something I&#39;d replicate after I use up this loaf.


        But I&#39;m full and relatively satisfied, so there it is.

          I saw something somewhere... oopsie cakes or something like that. They&#39;re made mostly of egg, but seem to work great as bread, for hot dog buns and stuff like that.


          That&#39;s one winter meal I really miss. Tomato soup and grilled ham & cheese.

            oh yeah... i forgot about those for a bit. but they seem like so much work with the egg separating and mixing in separate bowls and folding and whatnot, but it might be worth it if it would work for grilled cheese.

              As rarely as I actually *want* to eat bread-like substances, it might be worth the work for a treat. I guess you can make a huge batch and freeze the extra though. That could make it worth it.

                yeah.... but i&#39;ve read that if you fridge/freeze them they tend to get sticky or stick together or something...


                and i can&#39;t imagine that something that is MOSTLY egg would absorb butter enough to toast up into good grilled cheese.

                    The coconut bread I made based on Sassa&#39;s recipe was more like pound cake in texture. I would toast it in a toaster - it made it crumbly though and the slice would fall apart in the toaster sometimes - and eat it with butter/ghee and top it w/ curry. Not perfect and nowhere close to bread in texture, but definitely delicious. I made another loaf recently and added Indian spices to it and it made for a yummy savory snack.


                    Robert Nikoley of Free the Animal, has an almond flour bread recipe on his blog that he used for a sandwich/burger.

                      My experiments thus far:


                      -Almond bread is dense and thick, and makes a fairly good "normal" bread IF you get a bread pan that doesn&#39;t assume the bread will rise. So a taller, thinner one. Either that or you have to double the recipe and account for that in FitDay. I generally double the recipe and then slice it pretty thin to make up for the double recipe. It does crumble a little.

                      - Coconut bread is very... eggy. It also ends up dense, thick, and short unless you double the recipe, but it also ends up going bad faster, especially on the counter (learned that one the hard way). It&#39;d make a great french toast substitute but it&#39;s really too eggy and moist for sandwiches, especially since you really should keep it in the fridge. If you don&#39;t mind a moist texture, it&#39;s decent for open faced type meals, like roast beef & gravy on bread.

                      - Oopsie rolls, when PROPERLY MADE, are awesome. However they do tend to stick together once you&#39;ve put them in the fridge AND they&#39;re a PAIN IN THE BUTT to make by hand. IE if you&#39;re new to cooking/primal and don&#39;t own a mixer/food processor, they&#39;re not worth the time and effort involved. However, if you&#39;ve got a deft hand at whipping eggs, these do produce a slightly crumblier version of "bread" that get the job done.

                        MABA:

                        Hey, can you post a link to that almond bread recipe from Free The Animal? I&#39;m not seeing it and I want to know if it&#39;s better than the one I&#39;m currently using. Thank you!!

                          The best breads I've seen are those that are mixes of flax or nut-flours and other flours. I had a flaxseed recipe on here a while back that was quite sufficient for "toppings", but I know not everyone wants to eat flax (I completely understand - it's not entirely Primal). Anyway, this was

                          the recipe if you want it:

                          This coconut-almond bread is one I made most recently (I think you saw my other post on it). It was very robust/dense and "bready" in texture and I used it to dip in soup. Worked absolutely fine for it. Also, used it to make some "sandwiches". I think it would work fine for grilled cheese too:

                              there is a low carb bread at my local whole foods called "when pigs fly" flax bread or something like that. Granted it has wheat in it but it&#39;s 6 grams of carbs per slice so it can&#39;t be that much. I get that from time to time for toast with creame cheese, grilled cheese, etc. Decent comprimise.
