Super Bread – Bakers Deluxe
There is no food that has had its perception tainted by carbs more than bread. People on low carb diets have often resorted to eating loose deli meat instead of sandwiches or making wraps with iceberg or Bibb lettuce. Let’s be honest, though, bread has no equal and is too ingrained in most people’s diets to have a satisfying work around.
Bakers Deluxe offers two nutritious types of bread that are low carb and allow you to enjoy some of your favourite recipes. They are high in fiber and contain simple ingredients like flax meal, rye, water, wheat, salt and yeast. Additionally, these breads go great with our selection of tasty spreads.
Let’s first examine the taste profiles of each bread and what makes them so beloved among those on keto and Atkins diets. Next, let’s explore some amazing recipes where the simple addition of a Bakers Deluxe Super Bread can lower the number of carbs without sacrificing any of the deliciousness. This way you can eat a sandwich whenever you want or keep your Sunday morning tradition of enjoying French toast.
Superflax and SuperAwesome! Breads
Forget about cutting bread out of your life. Instead try one of these two protein-rich loaves that are filled with fiber and made with flax oil. Each piece has a firm crust and fluffy centre. These Super Breads can help keep your blood glucose level stable and your digestive system regular, both important factors to one’s overall health.
You can store both at room temperature for up to 10 days. If you intend to keep it for longer then be sure to freeze it.
Try with a Spread
We carry a selection of spreads that will transform any piece of toast into something even more delectable. Choose from any of these popular brands:
Our favourite is Jok’N’Al lemon curd spread that contains only 1g of sugar and under 3g of carbs per serving. The lemons are hand-picked at their ripest and crushed and chopped in small batches to create a standard of quality.
Fans of the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich need to try Walden Farms Grape Fruit Spread, which is gluten-free and kosher. Spread this sweet jelly in between peanut butter and add two soft slices of Bakers Deluxe superflax bread.
Here are some of the best recipes that include, or even feature, bread. By using a low carb bread, you can meet the requirements of your diet.
Brie, Ham and Apple Panini Sandwich
This recipe is simple to make and includes brie, a soft cheese that melts easily. Once your panini press is preheated, take two pieces of Bakers Deluxe bread. You can remove the crusts to get a more even toast on the sandwich. In a bowl, mix mustard and mayo together to create a quick sauce with some zip. We recommend using a dijon or whole grain mustard for its strong flavour.
Spread the sauce on the inside of each bread. Then layer in this order: brie, ham and then thinly sliced green apple. You want to avoid one layer being too big in comparison to the others. The idea is to get an even amount of each ingredient in every bite. Finally, lightly coat the outside of the sandwich in melted butter, place on the panini press and toast. Once the cheese is melted, you’re good to start eating.
You can replace apples with pears (or even poached pears, if you wish) or use a chutney or jam instead of the mustard and mayo mixture. Be sure to apply whatever sauce you use before pressing it as it will warm it up nicely.
Stay with us here because you probably never thought you could enjoy one of the best Italian sandwiches ever while on a strict low carb diet. With a few adjustments to the traditional recipe you can be enjoying meatball subs in only 40 minutes. Remember to skip the dough portion of the recipe because you’ll be using one of the Bakers Deluxe Super Breads instead.
To start, you need to make the meatballs. In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, garlic, basil, oregano, pepper and salt. Then divide the mixture into 16 portions and ball each one using your hand. Your next step is to heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the meatballs to sear and cook. Make sure the meatballs are not touching. As the meatballs brown on all sides, lower the heat and cook until they are a nice medium in the middle. This will ensure they are thoroughly cooked but still moist. Remove the meatballs from the skillet and place on a plate.
Take your two pieces of bread and sprinkle some mozzarella on both sides. Place the meatballs on one half and then top with the other slice of bread. Now, oven bake or grill on a stovetop for 5-10 minutes. You are essentially making a meatball grilled cheese sandwich, and we only didn’t mention that at the beginning so you wouldn’t run off to make it.
While you can make French toast with any bread, you really want one that’s eggy and firm like challah. Many keto diet recipes call for cloud bread, which is more of a bread substitute and not to everyone’s liking. You can make a more authentic French toast by using either Bakers Deluxe Superflax bread or SuperAwesome bread. Don’t worry about the flax seed, either, as French toast is sweetened so you won’t taste it.
Here’s all you need to do: In a bowl, whisk together two eggs, ¼ cup of cream, 1 tsp of cinnamon, ½ tsp of vanilla extract and a touch of salt. Let about eight pieces of bread soak in the wet mixture.
Heat two tbsp of butter on a pan over medium heat. Then add as many pieces of the soaked bread as you can fit. You will probably have to do 2-3 batches. Cook each side of the bread until it’s golden brown. Be careful not to burn either side of the bread as that will make it taste bitter.
Once it’s ready you get to have some fun and add a touch of your personality. Before eating add toppings and flavours to make your French toast sing. You can either sweeten it or turn it into a sweet and salty concoction. Add homemade whipped cream by whipping some of the leftover cream in addition to sugar and vanilla for about five minutes or for one minute with a mixer. Or you can toss some fresh berries (make sure they are low carb) onto your French toast or top with the wonderful combination of bacon and maple syrup.
