This Recipe is from the Trim Healthy Mama Book Page 268. Some of you may have made them before, but they are a first for me. They are eaten as a low carb S meal. I love the name of them... it adds an element of fun to them don't you think? These rolls are a yummy and slightly different sort of roll that remind me vaguely of a cream puff and (in my opinion), could be used as a "skinny creampuff" if sandwiched with raw whipped cream or whipped coconut cream, sweetened with xylitol or stevia. Like the Flax Sandwich Bun, it works as a low carb sandwich or burger bun, but can also be used as a pizza crust; Or load them with cheese, chilis, jalapenos, onions and so on, to eat as a yummy snack or upgraded bun if you like.
Oopsie Rolls (S meal)
3 oz cream cheese
1 Tb Flax meal
1 pinch of salt
3 eggs separated
1/4 tsp Xanthan Gum (I didn't use this, and they came out fine)
- Preheat Oven to 300 degrees.
- Place a metal or glass bowl in the freezer for a few minutes along with the metal egg beaters of your mixer.
- While the bowl is getting cold, place Cream Cheese into another mixing bowl.
- Add the Flax meal and a pinch of salt to the Cream Cheese.
- Remove bowl and egg beaters from freezer and place next to the bowl containing Cream Cheese.
- Crack and separate the eggs, putting the whites into the cold bowl, and the yolks into the bowl with the Cream Cheese.
- Add Xanthan Gum to the egg white bowl: The note in the THM book says that this is important to help the egg whites remain stiff once combined with other ingredients, but as I noted above, I didn't use the Xanthan Gum, because I didn't have any on hand, and the egg whites held up just fine, so its up to you.
- Beat the egg whites until you can turn the bowl over and egg whites won't move. They must be very stiff.
- Beat the ingredients of the other bowl with egg yolks and cream cheese until well combined.
- Gently fold cream cheese mixture into the egg white mixture spoonful by spoonful.
- Place 6 mounds of this mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes; until golden brown.
