SCD Recipe: Grain-Free Sandwich Rounds

Sandwiches and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet don’t always go together. I’ve made some pretty good subsitutions using lettuce, but sometimes I want a more traditional sandwich that uses some kind of bread.

I always have a hard time finiding SCD bread that I like for sandwich. A lot of times the texture is too soft, the bread is too small, or the taste doesn’t blend well with my sandwich toppings.

When I came scross this Keto Bagel recipe from Wholesome Yum, I couldn’t wait to try it out. It just needed a couple of modifications to make it SCD. The first time I tried it out I forgot to add the eggs. It was a happy mistake because the biscuit-like cheese bread that turned out was pretty tasty! It also made a good savory crust.

This time I put in the eggs and came up with these sandwich rounds. They were thinner than bagels and they spread out and obliterated the hole, but they were perfect for sandwiches!
