When my hubby and I decided to change our lifestyle some 5 years ago, bread was something we had to give up. I came across this low carb bread called the Oopsie Roll over at Your Lighter Side.
The Oopsie Roll is famous, particularly in the low carb community.
Just so you know, this bread is not really bread. No flour. No grains. Just eggs and cream cheese / cottage cheese / ricotta cheese / sour cream.
When I used to make these a few years ago, I only used cream cheese. But I discovered recently that you can use cottage cheese, ricotta or sour cream. And even yogurt! Which I haven’t tried yet.
So today, I was thinking that I needed to use up some cottage cheese and sour cream. I also had 5 eggs that needed to be used.
The basic & original recipe is as follows:
- 3 eggs, separated
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
- pinch of salt
But I used:
- 5 eggs, separated
- 145g cottage cheese / sour cream mixture
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- pinch of salt
I found a tip – for every egg you use, it’s 29g of either cream cheese / cottage cheese / ricotta cheese / sour cream. Or a combination, just as long as you have the number of eggs x 29g of dairy.
- Preheat oven to 150 degrees celsius. Get a pan ready or whatever you are going to cook the bread on. I used the oven tray with parchment paper.
- Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
- Next, using the same beaters, mix yolks with the cheese / dairy mixture with pinch of salt until it is well combined and smooth.
- Gently fold in one-third of the egg whites into the yolk mixture to lighten. Fold in remaining whites, until all the egg whites are just combined into the mixture. We want to keep the air in the mixture. So don’t overmix!
- Spread the mixture on the pan or your chosen baking apparatus. I managed to get 8 pieces of bread from my pan.
- Bake for approximately 30 minutes. I baked mine for about 35 minutes. Turned out awesome. I made a sandwich for my hubby with bacon and cheese!
