Low Carb Recipe: Oopsies

Posted: May 27, 2011 in LCHF/Paleo Recipes

I’ve been reading a lot of Swedish blogs, those in English obviously and I came across this recipe. It actually had ingredients that I already had in my cupboard and fridge, so I tried it. Basically they are a low-carb substitution for bread. I use them as hotdog and hamburger buns and they are pretty good… compared to gluten free bread I have tried in the past which was  horrible and full of sugar. Here is where I found the recipe, scroll down it’s at the bottom with a bunch of other food tips.

Don’t they look yummy? Only 6-8 grams of carbs depending on the size you make them. I take them with me when I go somewhere where there’s a bbq so I can still eat a burger and look a little more normal. Tastes good, easy to make, what more could you want? Mine didn’t look this fluffy though cause I couldn’t find my whisk to whisk the eggs so it was pretty flat but still good.

*Note if you have some extra time after writing down the recipe check out Mark’s Daily Apple Blog, he has three great stories that are sure to inspire you to change your healthy eating habits.

Ingredients

3 eggs
100 grams of cream cheese (A little over 1/3 cup, not quite half a cup)
a pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp fiberhusk (can be excluded)
1/2 tbsp baking powder (can be excluded)

  • Separate the eggs, egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another.
  • Whip the egg whites together with the salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  • Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. Add fiber husk and baking powder if you want (will make the oopsies more like bread)
  • Very gently put the egg whites into the yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  • Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a baking tray.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven at 300F for about 25 minutes until they turn golden.
  • Can be eaten as bread or used as a hotdog or hamburger bun. You can also put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, such as poppy, sesame, sunflower or even salba seeds. One big oopsie can be used for a swiss roll. Add a generous layer of whipped cream and some berries.
