Cheese Bread(and it’s great!)

Serves: n/a,

CarbsPerServing: 1 carb per piece Prep Time: Less than 20 minutes

Effort: Easy

Ingredients:

1 c. soy flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar(sharp is best) 1 slightly beaten egg

1/4 cup cream

How to Prepare:

Sift dry ingredients. Stir in cheese. Combine egg with cream and add to dry ingredients. Mix very well.

Roll to 8×8 square and cut in 1″ cubes. Place on greased baking sheet and sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Bottoms will be crunchy, tops lightly golden.

These are surprisingly good. I cut them in half and buttered them. Yum!

Might also work for pizza crust if you spread the dough in a pan and bake it first. It’s too soggy if you pile everything on the ‘raw’ dough.

But the bread cubes are terrific. If there’s a soy taste it’s pretty minimal!

How to Prepare: simply mix up all your ingredients well in a bowl. Cover and store in the refridgerator. It may get “gel like”, just give it a stir. I keep a batch for 3-4 days.
