Going strict low carb means traditional bread is something I can not have on a daily basis. I am mostly OK with that, but there are times when I just want a sandwich or one of my favorites, a tuna melt. I found this Oopsie Bread recipe on DietDoctor.com and we love it! It definitely works well for tuna melts, at this point in the journey that’s honestly all we have used them for! I am sure this will be a favorite recipe though going forward!
Recipe (6 oopsie breads)
4oz. cream cheese (best if softened)
1 pinch salt
1/2 tablespoon ground psyllium husk powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
- Whip egg whites together with sale until very stiff. You want to be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
- Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. Add the psyllium husk and baking powder. (optional but makes them much more like typical bread)
- Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, try to keep the air in the egg whites.
- Drop 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies onto a parchment paper lines baking tray.
- Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes, or until they turn golden. I have to watch mine and they are usually done around the 20 minute mark.
