You might be wondering “what the heck is an ‘Oopsie’ Roll”? It is basically a kind of ‘bread’ that has zero flour or starch in it. This lack of starch makes it great for anyone looking to avoid a few too many carbs in their diet or for those with gluten intolerance.
- 3 large eggs
- pinch of cream of tartar (or approx. 1/8 tsp)
- 3 ounces cream cheese – Do not soften!
*Optional* You can try adding spices, Parmesan cheese, or sweetener (stevia recommended) & cinnamon for various flavor combinations in your Oopsie rolls.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Separate the eggs and add spices (optional) and cream cheese to the yolks. Use a mixer to combine the ingredients together. If you are adding Parmesan cheese I suggest grating your own to avoid the starches applied to pre-shredded cheeses that keep them from clumping. When you add the cheese, gently sprinkle on top after you have the Oopsie rolls on laid out on your baking sheet – do not mix the cheese into the batter.
In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (if you’re using the same mixer, mix the whites first and then the yolk mixture). TIP - you want the whites so stiff that you can hold the bowl upside down without the whites moving.
Using a spatula, gradually fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites. This means you stir SOFTLY (try a slow and lazy figure eight pattern, I hear that helps), and you may not get everything ‘perfectly’ blended – that’s OK. You just want things mostly mixed together.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. Flatten each mound slightly.
Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store them in a bread sack or a ziplock bag (keep them loose in the bag) to keep them from drying out. TIP – allow them to rest out on the counter after taking them out of storage so they can dry out slightly, you don’t want them too moist.
Oopsie rolls are also gluten free so these can be a wonderful option for those with Celiac’s disease too![fb-like]
