First, I read the recipe for Oopsie rolls on YourLighterSide. I plugged in my oven and set it to 300○F to preheat. I gathered my supplies and tools: 2 mixing bowls, electric mixer, spatula. Then I put the ingredients on the counter-ready to use.
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
3 oz cream cheese
Instructions: Separate the eggs--I put the whites in the ceramic bowl and the yolks in the plastic bowl. (According to my granny, you should always beat egg whites in a ceramic or glass bowl.) I used the same electric mixer, so I beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (see picture) before beating the egg yolks and cream cheese.
Since I planned to use the Oopsie rolls for sandwiches, I sprinkled a little onion/garlic powder into the yolk/cheese mixture.
Then I folded the two mixtures together and, using a half-cup ladle, scooped the combined mixture onto parchment paper. Because I liked seeds on buns, I sprinkled a few chia seeds on top of each bun. The recipe says that it makes 6, I got 7. It would have been 8, if I hadn't accidentally made one way too large.
Here comes the adventure part...
I put the Oopsies in the oven. It was beautifully pre-heated. I set the timer. The oven worked for 12 minutes...then the fault code started beeping at me. AGH! I reset the fault code and reset the temperature and reset the timer. It worked for 2 minutes. I could not get it to keep working. The Oopsies were a nice size, but still white. AGH!
I gave up. I got out the roaster and set it for 300○F. I moved the parchment paper from the cookie sheets to the roaster. I had to have 2 layers for cooking, so I inverted the roasting rack to make a shelf. (I do that at Thanksgiving, too...I put a turkey in one roaster and the side-dishes in another roaster--two layers.)
My cooking time was messed up...I just had to keep checking on them. This is what they looked like when I took the lid off the roaster.
I let them sit for a few minutes (as indicated in the recipe) and decided that I'd test them out with a BLT. OK, it's a BLT with cheese. How can you have a BLT without cheese?
The Oopsie rolls are thin, so I used two to make one sandwich. Since they are .6 grams of carbs each, it is 1.2 grams of carbs to make the sandwich. This sandwich was about 4 nC. You can't beat it!
- I admit it. I was pleasantly surprised at how good these things are. I will make them again.
- I'll add more than a few sprinkles of onion/garlic powder next time.
- The chia seeds were good, so I'll use those again.
- I didn't do the nutritional information from SparkPeople this time. I used the information from YourLighterSide.
