I loved this recipe and will make it fairly often.  It makes the most delicious crispy garlic bread sticks.  The garlic bread was finished the first day between my husband and me; so good! It was very reminiscent of the real thing, and, frankly, I think I prefer this to the real thing.  This bread will spread and makes wonderful, long, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside garlic bread sticks.  Deelicious!

Make the bread shape a bit longer and thinner and there will be more crispy surface.  The inside is very soft after baking at that high temp and being so cheesy.  Let it cool first for 10 minutes before enjoying.

2 cups grated Mozzarella cheese (500 mL)

2 oz cream cheese (60 g)

1 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, (250 mL)

  OR 11/4 cups KetoBake, OR alternatives in Helpful Hints below (300 mL), OR almond flour plus 1 tbsp oat fiber

1 tsp baking powder (5 mL)

1 large egg, fork beaten

11/2 tsp crushed garlic, jarred kind (7 mL)

1/4 tsp Montreal chicken seasoning (1 mL)

1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese (125 mL)

Garlic Butter Topping:

1 tbsp butter, melted (15 mL)

1 tsp crushed garlic, jarred kind (5 mL)


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). 

In medium microwaveable bowl, melt Mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in microwave oven. It took 1 minute and 40 seconds for mine to melt. This could take longer depending on the power of your microwave oven.  Stir to combine. 

Top molten cheese mixture with Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR Keto Bake Mix, OR alternative in Helpful Hints and baking powder.  In small bowl, whisk egg, garlic and Montreal chicken seasoning together with a fork.  Pour on top of bake mix and mix all together well with a wooden spoon.  Place on greased cookie sheet and shape into a bread shape.  Spread with Garlic Butter Topping.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Mozzarella cheese on top. Make deep slits with a sharp knife, demarcating 8 slices of bread.  Bake 20 minutes, or longer until golden brown on top and underneath.  Allow to cool 8 minutes and enjoy! 

Garlic Butter Topping:  In cereal bowl, mix melted butter and garlic. 

Helpful Hints:  Using the Keto Bake Mix, shaves off 1 gram net carbs. For another easy Grain-Free version, use a bake mix made up of 2 cups (500 mL) almond flour and 2/3 cup (150 mL) coconut flour.  You generally need 3/cup (175 mL) per 1 cup (250 mL) of bake mix.  Leftover bake mix can be frozen and used to “bread” eggplant, other vegetables, fish or chicken for frying in some olive oil in a pan.  The packaged shredded Mozzarella cheese (whole milk or skim milk - doesn't matter) from Costco or PriceSmart (similar store in the tropics) works best and will yield the correct number of rolls.  You can also make these buns free hand, without using a food processor.  You may also use this Grain-free Bake mix.
