"Taking a classic Portuguese bread (a tradition in my family) and making it a healthy version. This is the closest you will get! Light fluffy and full of flavor!"



Cloud Bread


Servings: 6

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Cook Time: 25 Minutes


Ingredients:


4 large eggs, separated

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 ounces low-fat cream cheese

1/2 teaspoon sea salt


Herb Version: (add the following seasonings for a different taste.)

1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning

1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Instructions:


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. If you have a convection oven, set on convect. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.


Separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Place the whites in a stand mixer with a whip attachment. Add the cream of tartar and beat on high until the froth turns into firm meringue peaks. Move to a separate bowl.


Place the cream cheese in the empty stand mixing bowl. Beat on high to soften. Then add the egg yolks one at a time to incorporate. Scrape the bowl and beat until the mixture is completely smooth. Then beat in the Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder.


Gently fold the firm meringue into the yolk mixture. Try to deflate the meringue as little as possible, so the mixture is still firm and foamy. Spoon 1/4 cup portions of the foam onto the baking sheets and spread into even 4-inch circles, 3/4 inch high. Make sure to leave space around each circle.


Bake on convect for 15-18 minutes, or in a conventional oven for up to 30 minutes. The bread should be golden on the outside and firm. The center should not jiggle when shaken. Cool for several minutes on the baking sheets, then move and serve!


Notes: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days. However the texture is best if eaten within 12 hours of baking.

If using the herbs for a different flavor, play with the amounts for your palate.

"Try different flavors by adding cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, rosemary, basil, or even dill! You adjust to mate your dishes. Spread on butter with a little sugar free jam, herbed cream cheese, use two slices for sandwiches and burgers, or eat as they are!"
