Can you tell we were inspired? Sweet, salty, crispy, gooey. I truly think I could live off of this for the rest of my life…
Yield: 4 breakfast sandwiches
- 1 cup almond flour
- 4 egg whites
- 5 T cold butter, cut into chunks
- 1 t baking powder
- 1/2 t salt
- 4 pieces of speck, prosciutto, pancetta, bacon or sausage patties, crisped up*
- 4 eggs, fried
- 4 slices raw, grass-fed sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 T of your favorite jam (grape & strawberry work great)
For the Grain-Free Biscuits:
In a mixer (or with a fork) combine the butter and almond flour until you have little broken up, pea-sized bits of butter distributed into the flour. Add the egg whites, salt, and baking powder. Mix to combine. If the batter doesn’t seem stiff enough to retain its shape while baking, add more almond flour a little at a time until it does. (Based on the comments below, this step is essential. Different almond flours are more absorbent than others.) Scoop the batter into 4 even portions and place onto a greased or silicone-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes, until slightly golden.
Slice the biscuits in 1/2, smear the top or bottom with some jam (add butter too, if you’d like). Place the egg on next followed by the cheese and whichever meat you’ve crisped up. Place the biscuit ‘lid’ on the sandwich and munch away.
*I would not recommend using thick-cut bacon. The thickness overwhelms the delicate texture and makes it difficult to cleanly bite through the sandwich.
