There isn’t many things that I miss since going keto. I can live without pasta, cake and that terrible tasting commercial bread. I don’t crave carbs anymore and am grateful for that.
The only thing that gets me is I love, love, love soup! On a chilly evening, nothing beats a steaming bowl of homemade soup. The only thing better is a hot bowl of soup paired with a grilled cheese! After months of wishing I could just whip up some delicious bread, butter and cheese, I decided to get creative.
I don’t use almond flour or coconut flour to try and recreate things I shouldn’t be eating, so that wasn’t an option. But one recipe that is a staple in the keto world is cloud bread. I had to see if it would hold up to a hot grill. Let me tell you, it’s buttery, crumbly and yummy!
If you haven’t made cloud bread, go here and check it out! The recipe may seem a little tricky the first time, but once you get used to it, you will add it into your regular rotation. It is only eggs, cream of tartar and cream cheese!
Once you have a batch of cloud bread ready, just use the same process to make a grilled cheese being careful that it does get a little more crumbly then regular bread.
Butter the flat part of the bread and drop in a hot pan. Fill it with cheese and anything else you love. I like onions, tomato, ham and in this case, Genoa salami.
Give it a try and let me know what you think! It has been a life saver for me when I get that intense cheesy craving every time I make homemade soup!
