Flourless Cheesy Bread Recipe

Cheesy Bread is great by itself, served alongside soup, dipped in your favorite marinara, or even as the base for an open-faced sandwich. It refrigerates well, too, and can be warmed up very quickly in a toaster oven.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg preferably from pastured hens
  • 1/2 cup packed grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup packed shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tb plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot*
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • pinch fine ground celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until well-combined. [Elizabeth: I used my standing mixer for this recipe, but a hand mixer would definitely work just as well.]
  • Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or an Exopat. Use a silicone spatula to spread the mixture out as thin as you can make it without seeing any holes.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. The edges should be very browned, and the top should be nicely browned. [Elizabeth: mine took a few minutes longer--I don't think I spread it quite thin enough!]
  • Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Then use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the bread into wedges or pieces.
  • Serve! Leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container. To reheat, just place the slices in a toaster oven set at 200-250 degrees for a few minutes.
