Grain-Free Sandwich Nirvana on my Awesome Grain-Free Bread

This morning we got up early to get started on our errands. We headed back home early in the afternoon to refrigerate some of our purchases as well as take a lunch break. We stopped on the way home and picked up some Boars Head deli (no junk, nitrites or additives). I picked up some of their cracked pepper turkey breast and muenster cheese. I was so excited to come home and make myself a quick sandwich on my Awesome Grain-Free Bread and top it with my beautiful home grown sliced tomatoes. It is so hot here today and I can't tell you how nice and convenient it was having that loaf of bread sitting on my counter when we got home. I snapped a few photos to show you that YES...it is possible to enjoy a sandwich on bread when you are wheat and grain free...you just need to have the "right kind of bread." I love, love, love this bread. Honestly...it really should be called "Wonder Bread"...except someone has already used that name to identify the white junky bread with polka dots on the wrapper!  ;-) So...while it may not be "Wonder Bread"....it is most definitely "Wonderful Bread". 

If the fear of never eating another real sandwich is holding you back from flipping the no-grain switch...have no fear...REAL BREAD is here! LOL Just so you know, this morning I lightly toasted a couple of thin slices of this delicious bread and spread them with cream cheese and enjoyed that with a cup of coffee for breakfast -- much like the old days when it was a wheat riddled bagel instead. Then, for lunch I enjoyed a sandwich...not a pretend naked or lettuce wrapped sandwich substitution (which I'm not knocking because I actually like those)...but a REAL SANDWICH just like every other wheat eating person eats...just minus the wheat. Try this bread...you WILL like it!  It will make you want to smack your mama -- but don't do that, because that wouldn't be nice!  :-)  Enjoy!

This is complete sandwich nirvana...
Looking down on it...there's no way to know...
...the unbelievable sandwich that lies beneath!
An amazing sandwich on amazing bread...

Thanks so much Samudra!!! I am so happy you are enjoying my recipes. I need to make the squash casserole soon -- squash is so plentiful now. Glad you are enjoying the sandwich buns, too! That is one of those little recipes that are almost life changing. The convenience of being able to make a simple sandwich again is great, isn't it! Thanks, as always, for your kind words!!! :-)

I freaking love you. I have been looking all over the internet for a low carb bread recipe!! Going to make this right now! BTW all of your recipes look amazing. I can't wait to try most of them...in fact i want to make all of them all at once but I wouldn't be able to eat everything and that would be a waste of food lol. So I will have to wait and only try one recipe at a time. :*(

Oh and, I'm thinking caraway seeds would be a great addition as I've really been missing rye bread for Reuben sandwiches so I'm way excited. :)

Hope you enjoy the bread! If you want a really quick and easy bread recipe...my Sesame Seed Sandwich Buns are one of my favorites.

Here's the link to their recipe: http://www.gourmetgirlcooks.com/2014/05/cheeseburgers-in-paradiseon-grain-free.html

For those that can't eat flax, I have a sandwich bun without flax. Here is the link for them: http://www.gourmetgirlcooks.com/2014/08/low-carb-sandwich-rolls-no-flax-low.html
