Ingredients

Cloud bread
  • 3 3 eggeggs
  • 4¼ oz. 120 g cream cheese
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tbsp ½ tbsp (4 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp cream of tartar (optional)
Toppings
  • 8 tbsp 8 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 5 oz. 150 g bacon
  • 2 oz. 50 g lettuce
  • 1 1 tomato, thinly slicedtomatoes, thinly sliced
  • fresh basil (optional)

Instructions

Cloud bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Separate the eggs. Put the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
  3. Whip egg whites together with salt (and cream of tartar, if you are using any) until very stiff. Preferably using a hand held electric mixer. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  4. Add cream cheese to the egg yolks and mix well. To make the oopsie more bread-like, add in the optional psyllium seed husk and baking powder.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture — try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  6. Put 8 cloud bread pieces on a paper-lined baking tray.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes, until they turn golden.

Building the BLT

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet on medium high heat until crispy.
  2. Place the cloud bread pieces top-side down.
  3. Spread 1–2 tablespoon of mayonnaise on each.
  4. Place lettuce, tomato, some finely chopped fresh basil and fried bacon in layers between the bread halves.
  5. Serve immediately.

Meal prep

Feel free to make large batches of Cloud bread ahead of time so you can make this delicious sandwich in no time. You can also prepare bacon in large batches and keep ready made in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to a week (as if bacon ever lasted that long, huh?). Perfect for a snack or to use as a salad topping, to your morning eggs or in a sandwich like this one.

How to store cloud bread

The bread keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Put a layer of parchment paper between each bread so they don't stick together. That way you can easily grab as many as you need.

You can thaw frozen cloud bread at room temperature or in the fridge. They taste their very best if you toast them once thawed but you can also reheat them in the oven. Preheat to 300°F (150°C) and place them on the rack for about five minutes.

Tomato tip

Some of the best slicing heirloom tomatoes are Beefsteak, Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, and Black Krim. Watch for these at your local farmers' market for a BLT upgrade!

How about mayo?

We think homemade mayo beats store bought versions any day but sometimes you just don't have the time, energy or ingredients to make it yourself. The ones you buy in the supermarkets can vary in quality. Read the labels and try to steer clear of brands using sugar and soybean oil.

    Seriously delicious! The consistency is great and the egg taste is not super overpowering like other cloud breads I’ve tried. Definitely making this again.

    What about Ricotta instead of cream cheese?

    Is the bacon measurement in this recipe a raw measurement or cooked?

    The bacon weight is for raw bacon.

    Can this be made dairy free?

    If you can find an almond milk based cream cheese, that sub should work well.

    Mine came out fragile, almost powdery maybe. Not sure how to describe it but i assume it’s the egg white?

    Make sure the bowl you are beating the egg whites is spotlessly clean and the beater to.ciz if any trace of grease the eggs won't beat

    The psyllium husk powder? You can frequently find it in the pharmacy section - it is unflavored/unsweetened fiber that's frequently used to treat digestion issues like Metamucil.
