How are your quarantine food supplies holding up? For many, bread can be a little hard to come by right now, so I'm here with another recipe to shake up your life. "Cloud bread" is so named for its light and airy texture, and you can make it right now with only 3 ingredients, none of which are yeast! It's not like your average loaf in the store, but it's delicious, low carb, and gluten free.

The best part is that you can add seasoning, including herbs, sugar, or cinnamon to the recipe to easily alter the taste. Want a dessert bread? Brown sugar and cinnamon. Need a sandwich base? Basil and oregano with garlic. The possibilities are endless! Here's the recipe:

4 eggs

2 oz cream cheese

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1. Separate the egg whites from the yolks.

2. Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites, and use a mixer to beat until the mixture forms stiff peaks (this is called meringue!)

3. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese with the mixer. Beat in egg yolks individually, then beat until smooth. If adding seasoning, beat it in afterward.

4. Gently fold the meringue into the yolks, maintaining the fluffiness as much as possible.

5. Place 1/4 cup portions on a lined baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between.

6. Bake at 300°F for about 30 minutes, or until bread is golden and firm, showing no movement when disturbed.

That's it! And if you leave the flaky bread in the fridge to firm up more, it's extremely similar to buttered biscuits. When you make your bread, be sure that your tools are very dry, or your meringue won't whip properly.
