Almond Thyme Skillet Bread - Fresh Planet Flavor

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!
