Ketogenic Diet Recipes: Cloud Bread

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • ¼ tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 oz. cream cheese, very soft
  • 1 Tbsp. erythritol (if desired)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar together until stiff peaks form.
  3. Mix egg yolks, cream cheese and erythritol together in a separate, medium bowl using a wooden spoon and then hand held mixer until very smooth without visible cream cheese.
  4. Gently fold egg whites into cream cheese mixture, taking care to not deflate the egg whites.
  5. Carefully scoop mixture onto prepared baking sheet, forming 6 “buns”.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until browned.

Tips:

  • Ensure egg whites are completely separated from the yolks. If there is any yolk, the whites will not form peaks/incorporate air.
  • Buns may brown early in baking; ensure they are cooked through before removing from oven. Otherwise they might taste “eggy.”
  • Slice lengthwise and use as a low-carb bun for hamburgers/cheeseburgers.
