Mom J’s favorite of the traditional Adventist-potluck Special K® loaf recipes. Use a vegetable bouillon that does not contain MSG. It’s not a very low-carb recipe (plus Special K® is a processed food), but it’s ADA-compliant and a good Sabbath potluck dish—and you can have one serving!

*You can experiment with this recipe by using almond meal instead of the Special K®. Of course, it wouldn’t be Special K® Loaf then! Just…cottage cheese loaf.
