A quick grilled cheese sandwich bread recipe made from coconut flour. A low carb and gluten free bread quickly made in the microwave. I also use this for french toast too!
This is just so delicious and made out of coconut flour. A low carb and Gluten Free tasty sandwich! All of the taste and none of the guilt! Huzzah! The naming of the sandwich being grilled amuses me, being British, as for us it is fried. To our friends across the pond, it is grilled. I love the differences in a common language! I don’t care what it’s is called, it is still a lovely low carb sandwich type meal that is fried in butter!
I find this very filling too. One of these for breakfast and I can keep going all day. Although the Chief Taster had one and hinted he could have another, but I put that down to him liking it so much rather than hunger. I sometimes zap the sandwich in the microwave at the end to really melt the cheese although that is probably due to me piling up the cheese in the middle.
You could play around with this and add other fillings or herbs to this. I use garlic powder, dried herbs and white pepper to flavour it but feel free to get creative! Perhaps some jalopenos in the cheese would be nice…ooh, might try that next time.
