Melt butter in 15 oz oval ramekin or flat bowl. Add & mix egg, flax meal, baking powder & splenda. Add cheddar cheese and mix. Put in microwave 1 minute, flip bread over and microwave another 10 seconds if no done in middle. Makes one slice of bread. Cut in half, top half with desired sandwich filling. Suggestions: mayo or cream cheese, turkey, lettuce, tomato, etc. Then top with other half of bread. Serves one.
I experimented cooking them in the oven and they look just like the picture!! I sprayed a round corningware dish(aprox 10 inch) with Pam and fit 4 separate buns in the dish. I tried a 300 degree oven for approx 25-28 minutes or 425 degrees for 15 minutes, they both turned out the same. We R hooked!!
Oh my goodness! These are awesome. I have been low Carb for over 2 months and lately I have been craving a cheeseburger in the worst way. So I made this today and used it for the bun. It was the best thing I've eaten in weeks! It did fall apart a little, but I didn't care, it tasted so yummy!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! I'm not sure what the person did to make their bread look like Red Lobsters but mine sure didn't come out looking like that LOL! STill & All the bread is Amazing! - 6/27/12
I took LMCNAB's advice and baked 3 in a Corning Ware dish and 4 more on a Pam spayed cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 450*. This recipe is very good and you can actually slice them in half and have a sandwich which is amazing doing low carb! Try this and you too will be amazed! Thank you !
Flaxseed and flaxseed meal are sold in WM and most Amish stores . You must grind the seeds if they are whole or they won't digest at all . Amish sell by the lb and they are way cheaper than WM
This was fan-tas-tic! I made one for breakfast this morning. After microwaving I took the advice of the other posters and toasted it. SO happy to have found this simple, flavorful recipe. Thank you for sharing!
This was surprisingly good! Mine didn't look as pretty as the picture tho. I put it in the toaster oven to make it a little crunchy. I wound up using it as a hot dog bun! AWESOME!! Will definitely make this again!
It was a bit spongey, was anyone elses? Although the flavor was really good and I loved the way it held together when I cut it in half. I didn't have cheddar so I used Mozzeralla and I used flax seed milled. Is that the same as flax meal? Anyway it was good overall :)
I had to use mozzarella cheese (no cheddar) but it still worked great! I also used Pam, and I was wondering if I could make a few and freeze them for taking to lunch during the week? I will definately make this again and again, thanks!
