Product Review: Cloudies Original Cloudbread
The Cloud Bread Company sent me samples of 3 varieties of their Cloudies Cloudbread to taste and review. Today I am reviewing the Original Cloudies flavor.
In case you did not read my last post, Cloudies are a gluten-free bread made with egg, cream cheese, baking powder and baking soda. They are sold frozen, 4 packages per box, with 2 Cloudies in each package (so 8 pieces per box, enough for 4 sandwiches). At only 35 calories per piece (so 70 per sandwich), Cloudies are far fewer calories than a traditional slice of gluten free bread but Cloudies are fairly small - about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
One of our easier "special breakfasts" my daughter and I like to make on a weekend or school day when we're up a bit early (which is almost never) is what we call an "egg sandwich" Our traditional method is to use a Glutino English Muffin (closest we've found to a Thomas' English Muffin), peanut butter on one piece, jelly on the other, and then the filling is an egg patty (omelet w/o any fillings). We loved the crispiness of the english muffin with the sweetness of jelly, chewiness of the egg and well, what doesn't taste better with peanut butter?
For today's recipe, we just left out the egg patty since Cloudies do have a slight egg flavor. The result? A much easier to prepare egg sandwich which tastes nearly the same at a fraction of the calories- nearly 200 fewer calories! I think I actually prefer it as the 2 pieces of the Glutino English muffin does leave me a bit more full than I'd like.
So we are 2 for 2 on our Cloudies experiments. Next up: the Garlic-Herb Cloudie variety. Stay tuned.
