I may be grain-free most of the time, but sometimes I get a 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)!

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!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bacon fat, softened
  • Black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Mix almond flour, baking soda, thyme and salt in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in the eggs and bacon fat, then form the dough into a disc.
  4. Pat into an 8″ cast iron skillet (or spring-form cake pan) and top with freshly-cracked pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, then slice and serve warm.

Notes

This recipe is endlessly variable: use diced fresh rosemary leaves instead of thyme, or add 1/4 tsp of cayenne powder instead for a spicy kick.

Mmmmm. This sounds like the perfect dinner to end a long day. I want to grab a bowl of this, crumble up the bread and wind down on the couch.

I don’t have any bacon fat. Do you think I could sub olive oil ?

Yes, I’m sure that would work.

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.

is there a substitute for the eggs? I am allergic to eggs.

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.
