As the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky once said, “There is not a thing that is more positive than bread;” I would have to agree! A good loaf of bread is an extremely versatile household staple. Eatsane makes it easy to enjoy delicious bread, while still eating low-carb. Thanks to Eatsane’s products, all of your childhood favorites (bread pudding, anyone?) can fit easily into your healthy lifestyle. Here are a few RD-approved ways to use Eatsane bread that won’t hinder your healthy lifestyle efforts.
Egg & Toast Cups
If you’re cooking for a crowd, these are a quick and fun breakfast treat! You can also sprinkle with cheese, herbs, or crumbled bacon for added flavor.
Recipe Yields 6 Egg & Toast Cups
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Grease a muffin tin with avocado oil or another liquid oil (use spray avocado oil for easy clean-up!).
- Slice 6 slices of Eatsane Bread into 4 triangles. Press the triangle pieces into the muffin tin to form a bread “crust”. Repeat for the other 5 muffin tins.
- Bake the bread for 5 minutes, then remove and crack an egg into each muffin tin. Optional: top with cheese, veggies, herbs, crumbled cooked bacon, whatever you like.
- Bake for another 7-10 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your liking!
- Store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Healthy Cinnamon French Toast Sticks
Eating low-carb doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favorites! These cinnamon french toast sticks are the ultimate comfort food but are also rich in fiber and protein. Truly nothing beats the smell of french toast in the morning!
Recipe Yields 6-8 Servings
- Slice 6-8 slices of Eatsane Original bread into 3-4 “sticks”.
- Then, whisk together 5 eggs, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a dash of fine grain salt.
- Heat a nonstick pan to medium heat and add 1 tbsp avocado or coconut oil.
- Dip the bread “sticks” into your batter for a few seconds and then plop on to your hot pan.
- Flip your sticks when they are golden brown. While you continue to cook the rest of your sticks, keep your finished french toast sticks in the oven (150 F) wrapped in tin foil to keep warm. When you’re finished, remove from the oven and plate with fresh berries, whip cream, syrup, whatever makes you happy!
Seasoned Sourdough Croutons
Got a loaf of bread that’s past its prime? Or just craving a really good Caesar salad? Either way, this recipe is for you. Using Eatsane bread for your salad croutons adds a healthy dose of fiber to your salad, helping to keep you satisfied and energized. Plus, your friends and family will be impressed by these delicious homemade croutons.
Recipe Yields 4-5 cups
- Preheat the oven to 375 F.
- Dice 5-6 slices of Eatsane Sourdough into approx. 1” squares.
- Toss the bread cubes with 2 tbsp olive or avocado oil until lightly coated. Then mix in 1 tsp Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp fine grain salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Toss until well coated.
- Distribute the bread pieces on a parchment-lined baking sheet so they are not touching. Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping/tossing occasionally, and watching to ensure they do not burn. Remove when golden brown.
Avocado-Egg Salad Sandwich
During busy workdays, a quick, no-fail lunch recipe is a must! Plus this recipe is rich in healthy fats and fiber from the avocado. Don’t love avocados? You could also substitute for 1/4 cup of your favorite hummus or mayonnaise.
Recipe Yields 3 Servings
- Cook, cool, and peel 6 hard-boiled eggs. Use a spoon for easy shell removal.
- Dice your hard-boiled eggs into 1/2 inch cubes. Now, peel and mash one ripe avocado. Mix together until roughly combined.
- Toast your Eatsane bread slices and top with your Avo-Egg Salad. It’s that easy!
Jammy Toast (Nuts & Seeds Toast with 2-Ingredient Chia Berry Jam)
Did you know you can make your own homemade Berry Jam with only 2 main ingredients? Plus, this recipe is low in sugar and high in fiber. I love making a batch of Chia Berry Jam at the beginning of the week and adding to my toasts, waffles, yogurt bowls, and more. Here’s how to make it:
Recipe Yields 2-3 servings
- Microwave 2 cups of frozen mixed berries.
- Remove from the microwave and mash with a form until the berries are roughly combined. Then, add 1/4 cup of chia seeds and mix well.
- Pop in the fridge to gell for at least 1 hour, or overnight. Mix after 30 min to ensure the chia seeds evenly distribute.
- Toast up a slice of Eatsane Nuts & Seeds Toast and add your delicious, homemade jam (optional PB). Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
