I am trying to keep my carbs below 150g. I really want to get to my ratio of 40/30/30 – but I refuse to give up dairy or my fruit. So – I have to shave from other areas. I am trying Ooopsie rolls as a bread substitute.
3 large eggs
dash of salt
pinch of cream of tartar
3 ounces neufchatel cream cheese (not Tbsp!) Do not soften.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Separate the eggs. Milk salt and cream cheese into the yolks – I just beat the crap out of it with a whisk. Took a while, but it became smooth. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until really stiff – think meringue here. Fold the egg yolk mixture into the whites, using a figure 8 motion. You want to deflate the whites as little as possible. When they are really stiff, it actually is easy to mix in.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 piles.
Bake about 30 – 40 minutes. Remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store them in a bread sack or a ziplock bag to keep them from drying out.
I am very intrigued by these, and can’t wait to try one!
