What does 90 second bread taste like?

Usually 90 second bread tastes somewhat spongy and smells very eggy. However, this recipe tastes quite similar to wheat bread and only has a very slight whiff of eggs, which can easily be masked with some onion or garlic powder. It is also not crumbly as xanthan gum was used to bind the ingredients. This is a savory keto bread that tastes amazing and is a perfect substitute for recipes that call for wheat bread.
