Breakfast Sandwich – Mixed Reactions

Hopefully you’ve seen our Eggless Biscuit Recipe from a few weeks back.  That recipe yields a pseudo-bread that is dense and flavorful.  Unlike a piece of wheat based bread, it is its own thing without much accompaniment – although slathering it with butter doesn’t hurt!

Bacon Egg Cheese Sandwich
Bacon Egg Cheese Sandwich

This morning we decided to try making breakfast sandwiches with it.  Given Coach Loli’s constitution’s disagreement with eggs and dairy, she just had bacon (and lots of it) on hers.  I made mine with bacon, egg, and jack cheese.

Now, The Coach really liked her sandwich.  It was “very satisfying” and “bread-y and bacon-y”.  She truly seemed to enjoy it.  I wasn’t so thrilled with mine.  I felt like the VERY tasty bread overpowered everything else on the sandwich and there was no real complement of elements.

We’re posting this partly because its important to point out that we’re all learning stuff all the time – and partly to encourage you to try stuff!

Savory Keto Biscuits

Savory Keto Biscuits

Mr. Coach enjoys cooking as much as Coach Loli. There are a few keto friendly biscuits floating around the web and social media so, of course, this crazy health conscious couple tried them.

In an effort to make them better and in Coach Loli's case, egg and dairy free, Mr. Coach has had the test kitchen open for business. This morning was a complete success! Mr. Coach tweaked and re-tweaked until the biscuit came out just the way he wanted it to.

This recipe was tested on three very willing fellas doing some work on the Coach's house. All agreed that the biscuit was delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Tablespoon Ground Chia Seed
  • 1/2 + 1 1/2 Tablespoons Flax Meal
  • 5 Tablespoons warm water
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Coarse Salt (adjust accordingly to taste and grind - you will need volumetrically less for finer grinds)
  • 1 Tablespoon Softened Butter or Ghee
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoons of grain-free Baking Powder

Instructions

Combine 1/2 Tablespoon of the Ground Flax and Ground Chia Seeds with the water. Combine it in your favorite bullet style blender or any small blender. You're looking for a gluey consistency.

In a bowl or mug (we use the same one that's going in the microwave shortly) bring together all remaining ingredients except the Baking Powder. Once combined, add the gluey mixture from your blender and combine thoroughly.

Now, sprinkle the Baking Powder over your wet dough and fold it in. Try to use as few strokes as possible - and try to work quickly. You don't want to pop the bubble and release the gas created by the Baking Powder.

Gently ensure that the mixture is somewhat evenly distributed in your bowl or mug. Pop the works in the microwave and let it go on full power. Our bowl in our microwave seems to want about 4:30 minutes but take care to pay attention to how yours comes along. Variability in humidity, the amount of water used, how much heat your bowl absorbs, etc, etc can all affect the time required.

The result is similar to a whole grain english muffin. Split it carefully and spread your favorite butter on it or maybe some cheese or....
