Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

well... I made this today and it looked like it should, but when we broke one in half to try it the center was very "eggy" and tasted like raw eggs. Any idea why it turned out like that?

Hmmm, I remember hearing about this bread some time ago and never really had a chance to give it a try, but always wanted to. I'm curious though...does it hold its shape or fall apart when you eat it and is it more of a sandwich bread texture or a fat pancake texture? I can't get the idea that it's like a flat marshmallow with color. lol Do you think maybe some salt would be a good addition or would it hurt the texture...and does it need to have sugar?

Hi there! Yes, it will hold its shape. It is very light in texture, and you can add salt if you would like. However, we wouldn't suggest adding anymore sugar than what the recipe calls for because too much sugar can cause it to lose it's shape. Enjoy!

Thank you...I can't wait to try it!

Video did not include the cream cheese or sugar shown in the recipe do we use them or not?

Hi there! Howard mentions them when he's mixing the ingredients into the bowl. Every part of the recipe is used. Enjoy! :)

Thanks for having a gluten free recipe! These are delicious and light as a cloud.

Can these be frozen?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen does not recommend freezing this bread. You can store it in an airtight container for several days. :) Enjoy!

Is there any way you could include nutrition info with the recipes? My wife is diabetic and I don't want to overload her on crabs if I can help it.

Hi there! We provide the Nutritional Information for this recipe in the Notes section after the Directions. Here is the link in case you don't see it. :)

This is not very good, certainly not sandwich worthy, tidbits for snacking at best. The pictures look better than the product, whether using sugar or Splenda, it isn't that great, sorry.

To the Test Kitchen Team There is something wrong with this video, I can hear it but the video does not come on. There is no video window that pops up like usual.

I haven't made this version yet but I suggest a packet of artificial sweetener instead of sugar. Those carbs are precious and not to be wasted when there is a substitute.

Made these today, and they were just like the picture. We saw them on the Mr Food moment on our local news show. They were firmer than I expected,and that's good. Great for sandwiches.

Sugar? Is there something else you can use as a substitute? Doesn't the sugar kick up the carb count?

Use a sweetener - I saw the same "bread" on another site that's what they used.

I started making this recipe from Dr. Atkins book back in the 1970's. It uses a packet of artificial sweetener (no sugar) and I find you can use cream cheese in place of cottage cheese. It's great for sandwiches!

the recipe says to use cream cheese not cottage cheese

As other readers have suggested, you can use a sugar substitute in place of the sugar in this recipe. Enjoy!

Can't see the video, not very good customer support!!! Guess we don't count any more.

Hello - Could you please give us more information as to what browser you're using and what exactly is happening? We have tested playback of the video on several computers and browsers without finding any problems, so we're not sure why the video may not be working for you. Is this happening with just this recipe video or with all recipe videos on our site? Thank you

I too can only hear the video not see it. This is the first time this has happened to me.
