This is really interesting stuff. Though you don't knead it, it does use yeast so it's not like a quick-bread. The loaf winds up looking and tasting somewhat like white bread but is very dense and chewy -- more like a heavy, wholegrain bread such as a pure dark rye, for instance. I really liked the flavor and the chewiness appeals to me. I think it would make great sandwich rolls if I can figure a way to mold them since the bread doesn't really rise -- it actually sank flat into the pan. Frankly, I'm not sure the sponginess had anything to do with the yeast -- I think perhaps the holes were made by the curds of the cottage cheese (which seems kind of clever, actually). I'm planning to try adding some different flavors to the bread such as herbs or parmesan cheese since it seems like it'd be a good vehicle for such additions.
Most low carb bread mixes I've tried have had off-flavors, were dry and tough, etc. This was quite tasty and easy to make. It's not like normal bread but if you're low-carbing and have been looking for an alternative, this is worth a try.
I don't know if I found this product to be downright horrible, or if it's because I don't like cottage cheese (which you have to add to the bread mix). This was easy to make, but the taste was so bad that I ate one piece and threw the rest away. There are so many other lo-carb products from this site that are so much better, it wasn't worth the agony. The Twist chocolate-hazelnut spread I put on top of the bread, however, was very tasty (Item #125-0001). I don't recommend trying this bread mix. The net carbs is deceiving as well because it doesn't account for the eggs and cottage cheese that must be added to make the bread mix.
Ummmm! This bread is delicious if one has to eat low-carb food. It is so much better than any other bread product I have tried. It's so good that I purchased a Cusiniart bread maker, the only one on the market programmed for low carb baking. I've made two loaves on "baking day" so that I could freeze one and pull it out later. The frozen loaf was as good--in fact better--because it sliced so easily after thawing. This bread is a cross between regular bread and cornbread. Eat it buttered or use it as sandwich bread. For breakfast it is delicious after warming to melt butter and topped with any kind of DaVinci syrup. That for a breakfast meal makes a low carber feel part of the real world! A+
This was simple to make but sadly the bread just wasn't to my taste. It was spongey and eggy with an odd aftertaste. It just isn't worth the $10 per loaf that this costs after eggs and cottage cheeses are added for me.
OK I admit I keep searching for bread on a low carb diet, (silly me) and once again I've been burned. Do they even taste this stuff, it is spongy and the after taste! even 1/2 inch of butter & beanit butter couldn't disquise. I tried to toast it, took me at least three tries to get it to even toast. I followed all the directions and it even faintly smelled like bread when it was baking but that is where the similarities end.
Oh well another one bites the waste can.
