Description

This microwave flax bread makes a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich with a crispy outside, and a gooey inside! For maximum flavor, use a combination of cheeses for the filling. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, nut free, coconut free, Low Potassium.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE FLAX BREAD:
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
  • 2  Large Eggs
  • ½ cups Bob's Red Mill Golden Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1 dash Garlic Powder
  • 1 dash Thyme (or Italian Seasoning)
  • ½ cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Fine Shred, If Possible)
  • FOR THE SANDWICHES:
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Divided
  • 4 ounces, fluid Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Divided (Or Other Cheese)

Preparation

Spray 2 square baking dishes with cooking spray, or grease with butter. I use 5-inch Le Creuset ceramic pans, and they turn out beautifully. Use something about the size of a regular slice of bread.

Melt butter in medium mixing bowl. Add the eggs to the remaining oil and whisk. Add all other bread ingredients and stir until everything is well blended. Pour into your two microwaveable containers, dividing as evenly as possible. Smooth out the dough into the corners of the pan.

Microwave one at a time on high for 1 minute and 10 seconds. Bread should spring back when touched in the middle. If not, go another 10 seconds or so.

Turn out immediately onto a wire rack to cool. Leaving it in the baking dish will make the bottom soggy from the moisture. Slice in half horizontally as soon as the bread is cool enough to handle. This yields 4 large slices for two large sandwiches, which will be cut in 1/2 to make the 4 servings.

In a skillet large enough to build both sandwiches, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Place 2 slices of the bread in the melted butter, cut side down. Layer the cheese on top, add the other two slices of bread on top of those, cut side up. Continue cooking over medium heat until the bread on the bottom turns golden brown. Remove both sandwiches from the skillet, melt the other tablespoon of butter, flip the sandwiches and put back in the pan to cook the other side. Remove from pan, and allow to cool on a plate for a couple of minutes. Cut in half, and serve. Each serving is 1/2 sandwich.

Notes:
• For a really tasty grilled cheese sandwich, try mixing different cheese. I use 1 ounce sharp cheddar and 1 ounce pepper jack, or other spicy cheese in each sandwich.
