Almond Thyme Skillet Bread

Almond Thyme Skillet Bread -

I may be grain-free most of the time, but sometimes I get a wicked craving for something crumbly and savory to break into a soup. That’s where this Almond Thyme Skillet Bread recipe came from (plus I wanted another excuse to use my mini cast iron skillet, I love that thing).

This recipe is so easy, and a great use for leftover bacon fat. I served the Almond Thyme Skillet Bread with a soup made from ground beef and the random contents of my crisper drawer, but pair it with your favorite winter soup recipe and you’ll be good to go!

    I just made this and OMG! best bread ever. I think it may also work well as a pizza crust or as a sweeter bread with cinnamon and honey. I love this bread. I may sub. butter for the bacon fat if I do the sweeter bread.

    I don’t understand you first sentence. Using almond flour is grain free. Based on the reviews i’m looking forward to trying this!

      I’m grain-free, but still crave them sometimes. This is my solution: a recipe that’s grain-free but still mimics the characteristics of actual bread.

      I have never attempted this with an egg substitute, but if you Google I think there is an option with flax that can be subbed in.
