Low Carb Chinese Sausage and Chives Cloud Bread is an easy to make, light and fluffy bread substitute with an Asian flavor.
Low Carb Chinese Sausage and Chives Cloud Bread will be perfect for you if you are looking for a low carb bread substitute. This recipe uses the basic method of fluffing egg whites, just like the Cloud Eggs recipe that I had shared previously, to create a bread-like texture. In the end, you will get an extremely light, fluffy and airy bread.
I played around with the recipe and added in some Chinese sausages (commonly known as "Lup Cheong" in Cantonese). This slightly sweet and savory cured meat sausages are very similar to salami, but has a flavor that is unique. There are many variation of Chinese sausage, the most common one being the pork sausage, which I used in this recipe. Another popular variation is the pork and duck liver sausage (commonly known as "Yun Cheong" in Cantonese), which has a pretty similar texture and color to boudin. I also added some chopped Chinese chives to give it a slight garlicky flavor to the bread. So, if you are a bread lover like me, but are attempting to reduce your carb intake, this recipe might just be what you are looking for.
