Today’s recipe is by Sarah Smith of Nourished and Nurtured from her new cookbook Nourished Cooking. I made this cheesy bread today and it was simply divine. Of course, I love all things cheese so I’m hardly impartial, but I have a feeling you’ll love it too. This is a handy, healthful snack to keep around for a quick bite, so I’ll probably be revisiting this recipe quite often!
My family loves this Cheesy Bread recipe. Whenever we eat it, everyone always wants seconds. Cheesy Bread is great by itself, served alongside soup, dipped in your favorite marinara, or even as the base for an open-faced sandwich. It refrigerates well, too, and can be warmed up very quickly in a toaster oven.
Feel free to experiment with different cheeses in this recipe. We typically use cheddar and Parmesan, but it is also great with a combination of white cheddar, green chile cheddar, and low-moisture mozzarella.
Flourless Cheesy Bread Recipe
(Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Primal-Friendly)
- 1 egg, preferably from pastured hens
- 1/2 cup packed grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup packed shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tb plain whole milk yogurt
- 1/4 cup arrowroot*
- pinch cayenne pepper
- pinch fine ground celtic sea salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes. The edges should be very browned, and the top should be nicely browned. [Elizabeth: mine took a few minutes longer–I don’t think I spread it quite thin enough!]
5. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Then use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the bread into wedges or pieces.
* Arrowroot is not GAPS-legal. See reader comment below for a GAPS-legal substitution.
