Anyone following a low carb or keto diet always seems to be on the lookout for decent bread alternatives! Now, I have to confess that although this cheese bread recipe doesn't replace a standard sandwich loaf, it is seriously good AND easy to make! It's basically just shredded cheese and a beaten egg – so give it a try!
You could serve the “bread” as a snack or a side dish. It would also go well with soup or you could even use it for dipping into salsa!

How to Make Very Low Carb Cheese Bread
Mix together shredded Italian blend cheese (or just mozzarella would do), shredded Parmesan, and a beaten egg. Season with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, flattening it out into either a square or circle with the back of a spoon.
Bake in a preheated oven for 13-15 minutes until it starts to turn golden brown and has “set”. Leave to cool for a few minutes, then cut into slices. Garnish with chopped fresh basil leaves, and serve the cheese bread warm!
This “bread” smells SO good when it's fresh out of the oven! The fresh basil just finishes it off perfectly. Even people who aren't following a low carb diet will love this!
