Stop. Drop (the) Roll.

Yesterday I discovered a recipe that may have changed my life. Seriously.

I made "bread" using Medifast Cream of Chicken Soup mix. Here is the recipe I found online.

GRILLED CHEESE/sourdough Sandwich

cream of chicken soup
1/4 ts of baking powder
1 egg white**
1oz low fat mozzarella cheese or 1 Light Laughing Cow cheese**

Microwave it in a glass bowl (pyrex or corningware) for 90 seconds. Then let it cool, slice it in half and put in toaster. Melt 1 oz of low fat mozzarella cheese or spread with light laughing cow cheese.

I was extremely skeptical. EX. TREME. LY. You know me, always the optimistic outlook. :-) My thoughts were that it couldn't possibly resemble anything close to real bread, it was going to stick to the bowl, it was going to taste like $hit.

Guess what? I was wrong on all accounts. I eagerly stood in front of the microwave, peering in (probably getting brain cancer from harmful micro-waves) and watched the bread "rise". People, it actually rose! Like real bread. Still the skeptic, I pulled it out of the microwave, let it cool a few minutes, and then easily slipped it out of the bowl with a rubber spatula. OK, now here is where it gets really exciting. I sliced my "bread" in half. It looked just like real bread, little nooks and crannies and everything. I was becoming a believer. I spread it with a wedge of Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese and toasted it. DE. LISH. US.

Now, please remember, I have not eaten "real bread" in almost 3 months. So, maybe it was just an oasis in a desert of low-carb insanity, but I don't think so. I really don't.

If you are a fellow MF-er (hee hee), please try this and let me know if I am just delusional. If you have any variations of this recipe, please send them my way!
