Cheesy Bread (kinda reminds me of Red Lobster Cheese biscuits)
2 Attachment(s)
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 of a scoop of unsweetened whey protein powder
1 tsp vital wheat gluten (optional)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp xanthum gum (optional)
1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp basil
a pinch of a packet of splenda
1 ounce cream cheese (softened)
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese (can)
1 tbl olive oil
1 large egg
Stir to combine
I covered a small pan for my toaster oven with non-stick foil and put a baggie on my hand and sprayed the baggie and was able to spread the batter to the edges evenly.
Baked 10 minutes at 350
took it out and put on top a mixture of cheeses, smoked provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese.

Baked 15 more minutes but watch it that the cheese doesn't get to brown. If it seems to be browning to much on top the crust might still need browning a bit more cover it with a piece foil just on top no tucked.

I sliced it and think this would be great along side Spaghetti over zucchini noodles or dreamfield pasta.

Made 6 sticks

This sounds so good for dinner.

I was thinking the spices could be pumped up a bit more if you like your bread more garlicky. This was actually very mild.

Soobee 03-25-2011 12:03 PM

It looks luscious.

SkeeterN 03-25-2011 12:15 PM

Not sure what I was expecting. I think more of a texture like a true cheese bread stick but this isn't. It is more of a biscuit texture and taste. That is why I said it reminds me of red lobsters rolls. I think this would even be more so if one used cheddar cheese instead of mozzerella. Also it is thick enough to make drop biscuits too I think.

if you cut them in 6 sticks. If you cut them in half making 12 sticks it is 190 calories and 1 carb.

If I did mastercook right

Have you ever considered using the Wheat Protein Isolate 5000 and Wheat Protein Isolate 8000 offered by Netrition? they are extremely low carb, being 90% and 94% protein respectively rather than just 70% like the vital wheat gluten is. They both claim zero carbs in a 2 T. serving, and the one cup values are 3 grams net for 5000 and zero for 8000. I find you still get that biscuit texture in things, but perhaps less so.

I am going to work on kneading the dough in the food processor and seeing if that can make the wheat proteins stretchy to give things more of a bready texture too. You can add a little yeast and get more of a bread aroma, but unless you add something sugary for it to feed on it will not raise something this low carb, even with a long time to do it. I have tried that several times!

YUM! This sounds and looks awesomely delish!

Good job, Skeeter. :)

THank You, YUMMY !!!!

drjlocarb 04-21-2011 11:00 AM

Does this make them more bready, or still biscuit like?

pressing them thinner in a larger pan than I originally used seemed to make them more bready

drjlocarb 04-22-2011 01:34 PM

Thanks Skeeter. I am going to try these tonight. I need something cheesy.

drjlocarb 05-04-2011 12:58 PM

This is my new pizza crust. I had delicious cold pizza for lunch.

StyngerIsAScorpio 05-04-2011 01:18 PM

Let me know if you like this. DH and I love this.

pooticus 09-06-2011 07:58 AM

Do you have the complete counts for this bread/pizza base without the toppings by any chance, Skeeter?

I'm particularly interested in the cal count and the carb/fiber counts! Thanks bunches!

SkeeterN 09-06-2011 01:41 PM

If I have this figured correct. I press the cheesy bread on a 14 inch pie pan. Approx. 16 pieces (I cut 8 slices then cut it in half making 16 pieces. I do not have this minus the cheese

"16 pieces"

How on earth did I miss this? It looks so wonderful! I'm going to put a little yeast in for the flavor - thanks so much for this one, Anita!

Let me know how the yeast works in this. How cool!

Dixie Barkley 05-26-2012 11:34 AM

Marking my spot.

Oregon Transplant 05-26-2012 01:06 PM

I doubled this, added more garlic powder, and brushed the tops with melted butter/garlic powder. WINNER! This totally satisfies my bread craving. It would make good sandwich bread too. I can't wait to try it as a pizza crust. THANK YOU, SKEETER!

ETA- I also added a good handful of mozzarella.

StyngerIsAScorpio 06-02-2013 04:49 PM

Bringing this oldie but goodie back to the top :) On my list for 'must cook' tomorrow! Thanks again, Skeeter for sharing this!

drjlocarb 06-02-2013 05:07 PM

Even 2 years later, this is still my go to pizza crust.

SkeeterN 06-02-2013 09:14 PM

I make this weekly too. I will share something I keep on hand. I take about a half of a can of the green parmesan cheese and add 2 tsp garlic powder, 2 tsp dried basil, 1 tsp oregano, and shake to mix. I sprinkle this over Pizza or these bread sticks. You will like this

SkeeterN 06-05-2013 08:14 AM

Funny as I look at this recipe I realize that I have changed this a bit and didn't realize it.
I add 1/8 cup of Oat flour to the mix I also use 1/2 cup or more cheddar cheese until the dough is thickish instead of the Parmesan cheese.

and I use 1 tablespoon melted butter brushed on top of crust, top with a mixture of cheeses, smoked provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese.

SouthernBelle 06-05-2013 08:57 AM

Skeeter! You had me at "Red Lobster Cheese biscuits"!

Aside from the day I went into ketosis, this is my happiest day on this site lol! I will definitely try the first recipe this weekend. Just have to get the ingredients together.


SkeeterN 06-05-2013 11:41 AM

I use Oat Flour instead of Oat Fiber since I can get this locally. It really is lovely. You don't have to make this into cheesy bread but the addition of the cheeses is great.

SouthernBelle 06-05-2013 07:47 PM

Thanks for the tip Skeeter!

I've walked that section of the store several times in recent months, and I all ever walk away with is another flaxseed product. (You can tell I"m not a baker lol.) I'm pretty certain I've seen almond flour but not so sure about the oat products. At any rate, I feel like I have direction now that I have a recipe I'm itching to try.
