Perfect Primo Bread

Like I’ve said before….I am a self-admitted BREAD JUNKIE. I love bread. I like it toasted with butter, I like it grilled with cheese and bacon, I like it slathered with peanut butter and jelly. French toast, cinnamon toast, pizza toast. Panini, club sandwich, toasted with tuna, chicken salad. Egg sandwiches, finger sandwiches, BLT. Fluffernutter, ham & cheese, open faced turkey & gravy. Patty melt, Monte Cristo, Po’ Boy. Rueben, Sliders, & Dipped (in soup. au jus, sausage gravy)

So when I went low carb in July, giving up bread was the most difficult part.

Earlier this month I posted about my desperate search for the perfect bread recipe. The reason for THIS post….is that I may have FOUND IT!

Check it out low-carb, banting, LCHF, Paleo friends.  A delicious bread with under 2 carbs per slice!  It grills, toasts and spreads very well. It tastes as close to regular bread as it gets and it looks like white bread. Definitely worth a try!

I think I must have an addiction.  I’m addicted to finding and/or creating the perfect bread.  One that tastes so good that I want to make grilled cheese and peanut butter and jelly on it. After YEARS and YEARS of being a white wonder bread kind of girl, the fact is, all I really want is: white wonder bread.
LCHF/Banting leaves no room for white wonder bread and its 26 carbs per serving. A substitute MUST be found! Continue reading
