Low Carb Cauliflower Crusted Cheese Sandwich/Gluten Free Cheese Sandwich

If you put yourself in a dilemma of dishing out sandwiches with bread, am sure your brain will think twice than ever. Its happened to me recently and i seriously want to come up with three different sandwiches without bread. You may wonder why sandwiches without bread, yes i have picked Sandwiches without bread as this week's blogging marathon's theme. Once i picked this theme, i was quite excited to dish out some interesting sandwich without running behind those bread slices. Trust me, i simply enjoyed this theme by preparing three different sandwiches with interesting ingredients in it. For my today's post, am posting this low carb version of sandwich, yes this sandwich is prepared completely with finely grated cauliflower.

Gluten Free Cheese Sandwich

Do you know you can replace very well the flour in many bakes with grated cauliflower. I have already prepared some garlic flavored Gluten free Bread sticks with cauliflower. Since ever i tried this gluten free bread sticks, i got couple of request from my kids to bake some bread sticks again but trust me, once i served this gluten free cheese sandwich, they just went on crazy and enjoyed these super cheesy sandwich with some salad for their lunch. Since this cauliflower crust goes for simple ingredients you can dish out this crust quickly with less efforts. Very simple to make, this cauliflower crust calls for egg,cheese and some herbs which is quite enough to prepare this crust. Once baked in oven this cauliflower crust is ready to prepare your sandwich. How easy na, if you are allergy to gluten, then this sandwich will definitely please your tastebuds.

Vaishali, since i want to make as a gluten free i went on adding egg, you can add some flour and water to make a dough with minced cauliflower and make it as much as like bread slices to bake, hope this help.
