Last week when I made broccoli cheddar soup, I fixed myself a bowl and realized that I was sadly missing out on the crusty bread my family was eating with their soup.  I needed a bread substitute and I needed one fast… like before my soup got cold, so I decided to try Low Carb Layla’s One Minute Bread (link above).  I made the bread exactly as she directed, but once it was finished I split it in half, buttered both sides of each half, and toasted it in a skillet.  The entire process took me maybe 5 minutes and it turned out wonderful!  Toasting the bread gave it the crustiness that I wanted and made it perfect for dipping in soup.  My husband, who is not eating low-carb, even liked it and compared its taste to that of a Triscuit cracker.  So for any of you eating low-carb and craving bread, you should definitely try out Layla’s recipe.

  1. I’m loving this week’s menu, I don’t know why. ;) Lol! In all seriousness, your meal plan is excellent. Very good choices and variation. Anyway, that bread sounds amazing! Made in five minutes?! It doesn’t get any better than that, huh? :) Thanks for sharing this!

    • I wouldn’t know why you would like this week’s menu either, lol. :) The bread was really good and it can be made in even less time if it’s not toasted, so I agree it doesn’t get better than that.

    • I’m glad to be of some help :) I tend to get stuck in a rut with meals if I don’t meal plan and then I end up making bad choices out of boredom or because I am stressed for time with no idea what to cook. Meal planning makes things so much easier for me.
