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.

    You are free to experiment but the texture will be different.

    Can this be made dairy free?

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

    it was yummy

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

    Tomatoes give me heartburn can I leave it off ?

    I usually order one of 2 brands on Amazon, and your recipes come out delicious; however, one day I ran out of psyllium husk and bought some unflavored Metamucil like people have said they use. And the recipe which I have made tons of time was a flop with taste and texture. I immediately through it in the garbage and reorder the psyllium husk that I have been using. I am simply saying that I have seen people post that sometimes the recipes don't come out right. It could be the brand of psyllium husk.

    What brand of psyllium husk are you ordering from Amazon?
  18. Dana
    I usually buy Jiva Organic Whole Husk Psyllium, but I believe one time I ordered Yerba Prime Psyllium Whole Husk, and both worked great. My recipes always come out like described. Good luck!

    I made this this morning. I watched 3 videos on YouTube prior because I didn't have psyllium husk. My grocery store didn't sell it except as a diet supplement. However, according to google, chia seeds were listed as a replacement for psyllium husk. Guess what, my carb eating boyfriend loved it!

    I made this exactly to the recipe. I found it crumbly and had to eat my sandwich with a fork.

    Is flaxseed a good replacement ingredient for psyllium.
    I find psyllium rather expensive.

    Psyllium is a unique ingredient, there's no good substitute.

    Would this recipe work with cashew nut cheese for the bread as we don't do dairy?

    We have not tested this recipe with cashew nut cheese in place of the cream cheese.

    Wonderful recipe. If making extra to freeze, be patient and bake the second batch separately. I found with two trays, the bottom ones didn’t look as good (tasted the same though) yes, I have a fan forced oven.

    This total batch makes 4 servings. If you get 8 buns then a serving would be two pieces.

    Hi could you do a quick video clip of the process of folding the Oopsie mixture into the egg white mixture. I was concerned with the texture being lumpy. You can only do so much before you lose too much air and the quality suffers. Thanks, J's wife.

    Can you tell me how many net carbs for one serving of cloud bread? I would like to try this with other sandwich ingredients

    It would be approximately 1.5 from the cream cheese and the eggs.

    I've tried a few Keto bread recipes and my thoughts have been, "Wow. Only in my wildest imagination would I consider this 'bread' ".
    However, the Cloud bread part of this recipe is great! It's versital, light, toastable, grillable (like for grilled cheese sandwiches), not oily, and doesn't take over the rest of the recipe.
    Thank you.
    PS My one suggestion for your instructions would be to bring the cream cheese and eggs to room temp, and add 1 yoke at a time when blending with the cream cheese.

    I am wondering if cloud bread can be bought in stores.
    (I will make it though as soon as I gather all the ingredients).

    No, cloud bread is not available in stores. There are no preservatives, so it would not be shelf stable for long enough.
