The macros for this recipe will change depending on what you decide to top the mini bread circles with, and also how many circles you end up making. You could technically make this into a mini pizza, too, by making the circle a bit larger.

Ingredients - base

  • 6 eggs

  • 6 oz Kite Hill dairy free cream cheese (or regular if not dairy free)

  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Garlic butter spread (optional)

  • 2 tbs grass-fed GHEE (or butter of your choice)

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350 & prepare a baking dish with foil & spray

  • Separate egg yolks from whites

  • Add egg whites + cream of tartar to stand mixer and whip on high until stiff peaks form

  • In a separate bowl, whip together the cream cheese and the egg yolks until completely smooth

  • Very gently fold in the egg whites to the cream cheese & egg mix until combined - do not over stir or you will loose the fluffiness of the egg whites

  • Spoon mixture onto sprayed baking sheet (each bread about the size of a cooked over easy egg) or into whatever size/shape you want to make your bread

  • Bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes (until bottoms are golden) - this will vary depending on oven so be sure to keep an eye on the bread so it does not burn

  • While baking, melt GHEE and stir in the garlic powder & sea salt

  • Once breads are done baking, take out of the oven and spread a thin layer of the butter mixture onto the top of each

  • If you'd like to crisp yours up just a bit, place under the burner for a very short amount of time (keep an eye on them)

Add to this recipe! If you'd like a cheesy flavor (while still being dairy free), try sprinkling nutritional yeast on top of the breads after spreading the butter on them. If you do eat dairy, these would be great with some shredded mozzarella on top before putting them under the burner.
