Revolution Rolls?

Hey y'all!
In the '72 book Dr. Atkins mentions something called a revolution roll. He says to use it in replace of bread, and in the back of the book he gives the recipe and it's listed in the Week 1 menu that is also in the back.

I am curious- have any of y'all tried it? Was it -or- would it be okay for the first week?

The ingredients are:
3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 eggs, seperated
1 pack of sweetener (he said sugartwin)

Makes 6 rolls at .5 carbs per roll (or 3 for the whole batch)

What do you think? Is this a stall waiting to happen, or safe (as the books says)

Thanks!

Yes, this is fine for first week of induction. I restarted induction and have made 2 batches. This morning I had a fried egg between two rev rolls for an egg sandwich. They are kind of a sponge bread, not read bread but do add to induction for a change. You can also spread with some butter, splenda and cinnamon for a sweet treat.

Thanks so much! I made 2 batches as well, and the first batch was really pretty good, but the second batch I got just a tiny bit of yolk into the whites and it really did ruin it for me! I guess he wasn't kidding when he said to carefully make sure to seperate the eggs!

Yup...I love these..Hi Miss Buffy..and they are really good when you make French toast out of them..and put on a bit of SF syrup..which may not be Atkins '72 friendly or not..but you could sprinkle cinnamon on the top..and bit of Splenda..

Hey Carolyn
Oh yum, that does sound good, french toast. I will give that a try in about my 3rd week back on.

I got the recipe off the boards and made them a long time ago and I really liked them! I wasn't too sure how they'd turn out because of the ingredients but they're actually teriffic. As long as you don't eat the whole batch at once i don't think they will be a problem

I've seen the recipe for these rolls listed several ways......some say cottage cheese, and some say to use cream cheese.

Has anyone tried them both ways, and which one do you like better? Do they come out better using a specific cheese?

I use sour cream, they come out about the same I think, I just use it because it is a little easier to blend but I have used all 3.

What are seperated eggs? Do I just use the whites? I'm curious about this. I wanna tell people I eat Revolution Rolls for breakfast. I wonder if they work well in a Liberty Sandwich?

Pre-heat your oven to 300 degrees.

You'll need
3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
1 pack of art. sweetener

You seperate the whites and the yolks of 3 eggs (I put the whites in one bowl, and the yolks in another)- the key is don't get any of the yolks into the whites. Add 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar to the whites and beat the whites until they are fluffy. This is kind of a personal pref as to how you want the whites to be- to a stiff peak (you can turn the bowl upside down and they won't slide out) or not that much. I usually beat mine to a stiff peak, then fold in the remaining ingredients 3 eggs yolks, 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese, 1 pack of splenda. (I mix the yolks, cottage cheese, sweetener together in the other bowl before I add it to the whites) Don't mix it for more than a minute- so you don't break down the fluffy-ness of the whites.

After it's all mixed, spoon it onto a "Pam-ed" cookie sheet into 6 "piles"- the book says to stack it up 2 inches high per roll, but mine are never that firm to stay stacked, they usually kind of spread out on the sheet.

However they land on the sheet, just pop them into the oven at 300 degrees for an hour.

They kind remind you of a mix between angel food cake and a bun from McDonalds.
They're wonderful for breakfast sandwiches and great with burgers too!

Hope this helps- anyone else who has some suggestions, please add on to mine!

refrigerated at least a week. I eat them before then.
I also use the recipe with the cottage cheese and do not use the artificial sweetener.

My first load ever are now in the oven - hoping I've got the conversion for temperatures right - my oven is in Centigrade not Fahrenheit - and it is a fan-forced oven and you normally lessen the temperature for that - so 300 = 150 therefore I have it on at 140 - I hope they work because TOM is just about here and I know I will need something sweet!!! (ie when I make with cinnamon and splenda) and the idea of a bacon and egg sarnie - is just great!!!!

You guys are making me want to start making these now!! I can't believe I have been on Atkins for 10 months and never tried these! I guess I need to add cream of tartar to my grocery list.

You know when I made these things the first time, I felt liberated! They can take away my low-carb warps and no-carb bread and everything else for that matter- but they can't take away cottage cheese or eggs!

If any of you have not tried these yet, you owe it to yourself to make a batch- they're great and really do hold up well with a big old bacon cheeseburger with mayo between em'

Just made another batch today using yocheese. They look great, can't imagine they will taste any different.

Adi - you say you don't use the sweetener - I think I'm going to do that too - they are slightly sweet - which is fine if I want a batch for sweet things - but not if I want them for other things.

Plus - someone else said they use Sour Cream - might give that a go too - because it is lower in carbs than the cottage cheese I can get here!

Otherwise, my only thought is I need to beat the eggs more so that I can get a firmer bun.

Has anyone tried adapting this recipe to more of a cake????

In the book Dr. A uses the same recipe but adds 2 T of soya powder and calls it bread. I don't know if that is soy flour or soy protein isolate. Shantony made it and loved it. Infact too much she said.

I haven't worried about the 3 T of cottage cheese and I have been tempted to make it without the cottage cheese just to see if it made a difference cause 3 T isn't much.

revolution rolls

I love these rolls. I made them for quite a while without using the yolks because I didn't realize you were allowed to. Although I liked them I found I needed two to make a sandwich. When I started making them with the yolks, I was able to cut them in half and make a sandwich with just one. Last night I cut one in half, put in a tablespoon of whipped cream and a teaspoon of Walden Farms blueberry jelly. What a wonderful treat.

I don't use the sweetener and I use ricotta cheese. Love em. Use them all the time to make sandwiches for lunch.

I've read they freeze well too - they do need to be refrigerated.

omgosh, i forgot about these... back in 2000 when i first started atkins, there werent many, if any low carb breads. I remember when you had to use atkins bake mix to make anything

I tried these twice, and they were a horrid mess, i never ventured to try them again. I dont think i ever got the hang of the folding.

Are you supposed to see streaks after your done folding or should it be fairly mixed thuroughly?

Don't worry about streaks, they don't have to be evenly colored.

buffy how did the yo cheese ones turn out?

Whats best, sour cream (seems carby?), yo cheese (ditto), cream cheese (we cant have that on 72 right?), cottage cheese (yuck lol) or ricotta (where's the lasagna??)

I'm on my way to the store, guess i'll get the cottage cheese for now but would like you all's reviews on the best ingredient!

So far I've only tried the ricotta cheese. I thought it sounded better than cottage cheese because ricotta is a smoother texture.

I really like them but like I said, I omitted the splenda after the first batch because they were too sweet for sandwiches (the only thing I've used them for).

I'm going to give the sour cream a try next time. I think the tang of sour cream would be pretty good.

I'd like to give the revolution bread a try, subbing protein powder for the soya powder (since I have absolutely no idea what soya powder is).

As far as folding the yolks into the whites - the last time I made these I made a double batch and they didn't turn out very well because I didn't mix them enough. I stopped mixing because I was breaking down the whites. I ended up with streaky buns that spread out too much. They still tasted the same but just weren't as pretty. I wouldn't stress out to much about the streaks - it all tastes the same.
