  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup (25g/0.9oz) almond flour
  • ½ tsp gluten-free baking powder
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil (or extra (15ml) virgin olive oil)
  • pinch of sea salt


  • 1 (28g/1oz) slice cheddar cheese
  • 1 (28g/1oz) slice swiss cheese


  • Place all of the bread ingredients into a small bowl and mix well.
  • Grease a ramekin, or like me find a bread-shaped storage container. Pour the mixture into the container and shake to distribute evenly.
  • Microwave on high for 90 seconds. Turn out and cool on a rack. Note: If you don’t have a microwave, you can use the oven. Preheat to 175°C/ 350°F and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • When cool, cut in half and spread with butter, if desired. Place the cheese slices in the middle and toast for approx. 5 minutes(or try any of our suggested variations).
  • Eat with gusto. Store, wrapped, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.


  • Filling variations(use instead of the above filling):
    1. 2 tbsp red eye bacon jam, 2-3 slices brie cheese and handful of spinach
    2. 3-4oz cooked chicken, ¼ sliced avocado, 1-2 slices Jarlsburg cheese
    3. 1-2 slices Pastrami, 3-4 slices Provolone cheese and 2 slices red onion
