Make your own “bread”

20 Sep

I found this recipe for Oopsies while searching online for low carb bread. They remind me of a Gougère.  But much quicker to do and no flour or cheese.  I suppose with a little fiddling cheese could be added. They are very eggy and nothing like bread but it makes a great base for a ham and cheese melt. I think a sweetened version would be easy, add a little splenda to the batter and make one large Oopsie.  Spread with whipped cream and berries.

Oopsie Bread (makes 6 medium)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 large eggs, separated (whites in one bowl, yolks in another)

3 ounces of cream cheese

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

Beat yolks with cream cheese and baking powder until creamy. Whip egg whites with pinch of salt until very stiff peaks form. 

Gently add egg whites into the yolk mixture, taking care not to break down egg whites.

Mound 6 separate oopsies on prepared baking sheet spread a little to create a circle. Option-make one large oopsie for a dessert.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top. 

Ham & Cheese Melt with Oopsie Bread

I eat a lot of eggs.  I love eggs they really are so perfect, easy to have on hand, not very expensive, and cook up quickly. I know there are many personal preferences to preparing scrambled eggs, but I will share my quick yummy way.  Hint-Chives make them special.

Creamy Scrambled Eggs with Cream Cheese & Chives-one serving

2 large eggs scrambled with a whisk until yolks and whites combined. Really whip them up, this makes them airy and foamy.  I read about a suggestion to use a blender to mix the eggs! (too much clean up for me) Add 1 T chopped chives, salt, pepper and 2 T. light cream. (milk or heavy cream works to)

Melt 1 T  butter in non stick skillet, over med heat.  Pour egg mixture into pan and using rubber spatula push eggs towards center, tilting pan as you do this.  Soft curds will form.   Add 1 T. cream cheese, as the eggs are cooking. Lightly push the eggs around until no runny egg left and cream cheese has combined with the eggs, do not overcook.

Tip- if fresh chives unavailable(very easy to grow) use freeze dried chives found in the spice aisle.
