An alternative for bread if you are eating low carb and diabetic. I saw this recipe on Diet Doctor, and loved it and wanted to share it.
- 3 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup cream cheese
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 tablespoon psyllium husks (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
- Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the 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. If you choose, add the psyllium seed husk and baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).
- Gently fold the egg whites into the egg 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 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.
- You can eat Oopsies as bread or use them as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger. You can also put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, for instance poppy, sesame or sunflower seeds. One big Oopsie can be used for a swiss roll: Add a generous layer of whipped cream and some berries. Enjoy.
These are great but very easy to screw up. I tried them 3 times before I got them right. My mom told me the trick to it. The key is to beat the egg whites until stiff. The easiest way to do this is to use a blender or hand mixer and make sure YOUR EGGS ARE ROOM TEMPERATURE before breaking them and starting. In my opinion this should be added to the instructions. Using eggs fresh from the fridge I was not able to get this recipe to work correctly.
I just made your oopies bread. This is the first time I have ever made the bread. Being that I am a bread LOVER I was a little lerry, WOW, I was amazed, it was delicious. This recipe will DIFFENENTLY go in my recipe file.<br/>Thank you
These are absolutely amazing! I love the texture and taste. They don't look like much but they were just what I needed. I also added 2 teaspoon of flax meal for fiber. I also used some of these with some vanilla protein powder and pumpkin spice and stevia. They were good also. I will be making these again.
