Gluten Free Bread Alternative – Gluten Free Flat-Bread

The quest for the perfect gluten free bread continues today with the weirdest bread I’ve ever heard of. The original recipe calls for just cream cheese and eggs. I added tiny bits of a couple of things, potato flour, baking powder and a bit of sugar, mostly because I have trust issues and cream cheese and eggs just seemed bound for failure. The result is a soft, almost cake-like, buttery flat-bread. Amazing plain, but would also be perfect if you like a sweeter bread for your sandwiches, I think it would be perfect for something salty like thinly sliced ham. (Although, last night I ate a piece wrapped around a scoop of ice cream.) This recipe only makes 8 smallish pieces, so if you have a big family like ours, or you want leftovers, you should probably double it.
