Oopsie Bread – Nearly NO Carb and Gluten Free!
Back in the day when I was a grizzled old vet of the low carb lifestyle…I would slice my hamburger patty horizontally and then put all the stuff inside my two “buns” that I had crafted from my patty. It was a little mind trick thing that made me miss eating a burger with a bun just a little less. But it just wasn’t the same. So…you can imagine how my head spun around when Lana Thompson Brown sent me a recipe for Oopsie Bread! I looked over the recipe and wondered how in the world does 3 eggs, 3 ounces of cream cheese and an 1/8th of a teaspoon of Cream of Tarter make ANYTHING…let alone some palatable bread.
Of course…I had to give it a whirl!! And you know what??? IT IS BETTER THAN FREAKING AWESOME!!! I mean…LOOK AT THIS BURGER TOPPED WITH OOPSIE BREAD!!! And the best part???? Not only does it taste good….IT HAS NEXT TO NO CARBS!!!
So…here’s what ya do. Separate 3 eggs. Beat the egg whites with 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tarter until stiff peaks form.
Then you beat the COLD cream cheese into the egg yolks until somewhat smooth. As you can see…mine is a tad lumpy.
Then GENTLY fold the egg whites into the egg yolk/cream cheese mixture. GENTLY!!!
Now…you can either spoon mounds of the mixture onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment or you can put the mixture in a zip lock bag and cut a corner off and pipe it on to the cookie sheet.
Leave a little space between them.
Pop them into a 350 oven for about 30 minutes or until they are brown.
And look at the other side of one…it even LOOKS like toasted bread!
AND WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS??? I AM EATING A BURGER!!! WITH BREAD!!! AND THE ENTIRE THING HAS LESS THAN 2 CARBS!! Had I done without the slice of onion…it would be less than 1 carb! And yeah…my burger is a little on the pink side…I WOULDN’T WAIT TO LET IT COOK SOME MORE!! I WAS HUNGRY!
