UPDATE:  Here is Ginny's English muffin video - based on this recipe (it's the 2nd recipe on the video)

Here are the steps to preparing the bread:


EGGS BENEDICT:

ONE MINUTE BREAD, THE NEXT MINUTE TOAST
This is a handy and quick recipe in the morning for those who don’t have time to bake my 2 g carb bread (see wholegrain bread) or perhaps for those steering clear of regular grains for the moment. My habit in the past has almost always been to use regular, ordinary ingredients in my recipes, but I make an exception here and, besides, lately I’ve been ordering almost all my more “exotic” low-carb supplies very conveniently from Netrition. Their customer service is reliable and speedy! I highly recommend this particular online store associated with lowcarfriends.

Note: This recipe is very forgiving and invites one to try all sorts of combinations and computations. I’m sure this could be a fun recipe to “play” with as there are bound to be some different combinations that would suit individual tastes better. The three ingredients in one tablespoon amounts can be exchanged for other ingredients such as oat flour, whole wheat pastry flour, oat bran, more ground almonds (2 tbsp) vs, say, a flour such as oat flour (1 tbsp), etc. The flax seed meal is optional in most cases. I have not tried any of these other ideas, but I’m sure one could come up with alternative recipes, albeit perhaps a little higher in carbs. Feel free to try my recipes and also come up with other one minute bread recipes along these lines and I’ll provide the nutritional analysis, if you request it. This type of “bread” with eggs, bacon and cheese on top, for instance, will be a meal that will satiate the appetite for up to 6 hours or more. This is what I have discovered – therefore, it can be very dieting.

Recipe #1 One Minute Bread, the Next Minute Toast(My favorite)
1 tsp coconut oil (to boost the metabolism)
1 tsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp Resistant Wheat Starch 75 (means it is 75% fiber)
1 tbsp Wheat Protein Isolate 5000 (high protein)
1 tbsp Ground Almonds
1 tsp flax seed meal (golden would be milder-tasting)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp water
1 large egg

Method: In standard cereal bowl, place coconut oil. Nuke 15 seconds. To coconut oil in cereal bowl, add ingredients in the following sequence – mayonnaise, Wheat Resistant Starch 75, Wheat Protein isolate 5000, Ground Almonds, flax seed meal, baking powder, water and egg. Using a metal whisk, whisk ingredients together until well combined.

Nuke uncovered 1 minute 30 seconds, or until set. The cooking time may vary for different microwave ovens. Loosen edges and underneath with a regular dinner knife and invert. Allow to cool slightly and using a sharp bread knife, slice in half horizontally. Toast in a bread toaster (setting should be higher than for regular bread) until browned. Butter crisp toast generously and place breakfast items on top. Enjoy!

Here is Christina's version of Recipe #1:
Christina this sounds super too. Gee, and here I've been trying to come up with something fancy.

1 tsp coconut oil (to boost the metabolism)
1 tsp mayonnaise
3 tbsp Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix (see my blog)
1 tsp flax seed meal (golden would be milder-tasting)
1/4 tsp heaped baking powder
pinch salt or No Salt (optional)
1 tbsp water
1 large egg

Method: In standard cereal bowl, place coconut oil. Nuke 15 seconds. To coconut oil in cereal bowl, add ingredients in the following sequence – mayonnaise, Low-Carb Bake Mix, flax seed meal, baking powder, water and egg. Using a metal whisk, whisk ingredients together until well combined.
Nuke uncovered 1 minute 30 seconds, or until set. The cooking time may vary for different microwave ovens. Loosen edges and underneath with a regular dinner knife and invert. Allow to cool slightly and using a sharp bread knife, slice in half horizontally. Toast in a bread toaster (setting should be higher than for regular bread) until browned. Butter crisp toast generously and place breakfast items on top. Enjoy!

I will be trying it tomorrow. :) Just another reason for me to be successful with the LC lifestyle!!! Thanks so much!

Hi Fourstubbs!

Nice to see you here. Welcome! :-)

For me it is difficult to eat just eggs and bacon, say, for breakfast - having something like this helps me stick with the LC lifestyle as well. I'll post my new very easy, crispy, thin crackers soon. Sure as LC'ers we have to make more foods (as there are not that many convenience foods - and the ones we liked in the past are typically off limits now), but if we take the time to stock up and make things too to have on hand, it makes it a lot easier.

HI Jennifer ;]

Welcome back!! I got your cookbooks on Friday and I cant wait till I can't try cooking all the great recipes from them...I will try this bread this week...will e-mail you again soon GF!!

Thanks!
HUGS
Christina

Jennifer said...

Hi Christina! So glad your books arrived safely. They ship from Montana, so, unfortunately, I cannot sign them personally. I used to do that in the past.

Vikki said...

Hey girl,
Something I think you have a way of peeking into my pantry to see what I have on hand before you create recipes...giggle Thanks I will definitely be giving both of these a try.
I miss sandwiches this time of year. Winter no problem but come spring and warm weather I want burgers, bbq, and other things you pop on buns and bread.
Thanks again and hope you're having a wonderful Sunday
Vikki

Jennifer said...

LOL Vikki! Hope it works for you. Ian likes the first recipe mostly these days, but the second one is okay too. He didn't much care for the 2nd recipe with a hamburger on it,though he liked it for breakfast "toast", but it might have been the dark flax seed meal I was using and maybe the flavor needs a bit of work for that particular purpose. Maybe the first recipe would make a better hamburger bun, but have not tried that yet. You could possibly come up with some other combination of ingredients that would be even nicer. I did try coconut flour, but did not care for it in this recipe.

Have a super week, my friend. Hope you get plenty of rest too.

Looks like an interesting recipe. I really haven't had any buns since I started (beyond the Carbquick garlic cheese biscuits). I am going to try recipe #1 next time we have eggs in the house.

Jennifer said...

Hi Kent - thank you for taking the time to tell me that. My DH (on strict low-carbing) needs something like toast with his breakfast items, so this is the best solution for now. I used to place his breakfast items on low-carb waffles, but he prefers this, as it reminds him more of real toast. He really likes it and some days manages one meal a day (it is so filling with a ground beef, bacon and cheese omelet on top, for instance) and as a result he is losing weight at a good clip. #1 might do for a hamburger bun - but do toast it, as I think it tastes much better toasted.

I have not "seen" you in forever. I remember you as one of the nicest and most interesting (and most successful) of people on an Atkins diet bulletin board I used to frequent several years ago. Thanks for that! :-)

I don't know how I missed your fantastic blog all this time - but better late than never - have now linked to your blog under "Favorite Blog Links." Hopefully, you can reciprocate - I would appreciate that. I will be visiting sometime soon. It looks so interesting and the videos too.

Kent said...

I really need to update my blog-roll because there are so many great LC Blogs I read daily -- like yours and Sparky's Girl -- that aren't on there. It is mark against me that I have lurked for so long without posting because you really do have a great site and great recipes.

Thank you for the kind words re: ADBB. It really was and still is a great place for support for lifestyle. I was fortunate to be surrounded with such great "losers" to get even me to be successful.

PS - I think a number of your recipes would make great Youtube videos. :-) The WLC there would definitely be benefited by your videos.

Jennifer said...

Thanks, Kent. A link on your great blog would be super! :-)

I had no idea you were lurking. Sometimes I think no one practically reads my blog - but, lately, I'm beginning to realize that is not true. Thanks for your kind words too.

Eek! Videos! You cannot imagine how shy I am in real life about things like that. I had to do TV cooking shows and radio interviews for a couple of my cookbooks and three weeks prior I would be having an attack of the "nerves" - but I usually managed and did really well after all - even flying all over the country on my own. You never know though - as time goes by - I might get into it.

You're welcome to take any of my recipes and use them on your videos, as long as you give me a credit too and tell people where they can find my books. :-)
