WOE: Low Carb
Start Date: 8/9/10
Marymc - I didn't try all sour cream yet, I will though - maybe tomorrow. I love the original recipe of course - and I LOVE cream cheese - it's just that it has a lot of sodium in it and so does mayo and I try and watch that along with the calories too. So, that's why I experimented a little with sour cream.

If I try all sour cream - will let you know how they turn out and if you try it before I do, please let me know too!

I sure will - was gonna make some tonight but never got away from the television and laptop LOL... Sodium affects me too ... bloats me up quick! So I totally understand. The original cottage cheese ones are good, but they're higher in carbs. I love cream cheese too, but again, carbs AND it usually stalls me! The mayo ones cooked up fine and I really liked them for sandwiches, that's why I thought the sour cream might work alone too - sort of the same consistency. Somebody posted on the other thread that they did try all sour cream and they thought it was too sour, but might work as a savory bun, which is what I would want them for anyway. Anyway, will definitely post when I get to it! Thanks!

Okay, gotta admit, the pizza's are gettin' to me.

But. . . . I'm low cal as well as low carb so I gotta ask:

Re the original Oopsie recipe:

1. Anyone tried these with Egg Beaters in place of the yolks in this recipe? Think I could get away with that?

2. Anyone gone the FF cream cheese route?

Thanks!

I went to make Oopsies last night and realized I didn't have cream cheese, so I used mascarpone cheese since I already had it and it seemed to turn out okay.
I'm not sure which is higher in carbs cc or mascarpone.

I made extra sweet oopsies and used them in strawberry shortcake. They are perfect. They have the light spongecake type of flavor. My husband was thrilled. Now I can keep a bag of oopsies in the freezer, a container of sweetened strawberries in the fridge along with a can of whipped cream, and he can make himself a low carb, fairly low calorie strawberry shortcake at a moment's notice.

Every time I open this thread and see that first post with the big ole baconater ... well, I just about start drooling all over myself LOL....

Oh Soobee... YUM!! I always have a big bag of strawberries in my freezer. Do you know how much extra sweetener you used on the Oopsie? The last time I made sweet ones they weren't sweet enough, but then I didn't want to overdo it the next time I did them either! I think those were the original recipe with cottage cheese too though now that I think about it...

I have made the oopsies with ff cream cheese (the kind in the tub)--I used regular eggs--and I added a little xanthan gum when beating the whites--they are still very low calorie (I think like 37 calories per oopsie) and my experience is that they need to sit in the fridge overnight to be as flexible as their high fat cousins--when they are first baked, they are a bit more rigid--I think because the ff cc is already loaded with gum of some kind. I thought they were fine--definitely better than the original rev. rolls. Try it and see what you think--

marymc, I used 1/2 cup worth of sweetener (Sweetzfree which is 0 carbs and calories) for a double batch made with 6 eggs. I also added vanilla. The oopsies taste like a terrific light spongecake, better than anything you would buy at the store.

As my sisters ate cinnamon buns, I decided to make something sweet. I made the oopsies with splenda and cinnamon and added sf jelly and whipped cream and they came out great! I am trying not to eat all... ok..maybe one more..

I want to make "corn dogs" type thing tomorrow..like the pig in the blankets but with full hotdogs. I'm trying to figure out how to do it without it running all over the pan.

I'm cooking so much now because during the week I leave for work at 6:50am and don't get home til 10pm. No time to cook I usually eat 2/3 meals out a day. So to eliminate that I'm cooking ahead on Sunday for 4 days. So I can have my choice of breakfast, lunch and dinner at my fingertips.
I can stay on track this way........

That is good planning. Most don't realize that the secret to LC is planning ahead.

[COLOR="Magenta"]I made one... Yes, just one, as I wasn't sure how to do it..

All I did was spoon some batter out about the length/width of a hotdog bun, put the dog on it, and spooned some more over it. It ran down the sides just a little, but baked up fine really... When I do it again, I will make the first layer {for lack of a better word.. Brain is dead right now} skinnier, so when I put the dog down, it won't smoosh out to the sides as much..

It didn't stick to the hotdog like the cresent roll would, but it worked well..

I baked it at 300* untill I felt it and the Oppsies were done. For some reason, even tho I live where Cleo does, mine need more than 30 minutes. I imagine it's just our ovens cook different??[/COLOR]

Oopsie Pizza Disaster

I don't know if it's me, or if I did something wrong, but my Oopsie pizza was a total disaster. Look at it!! It looks beautiful. It even looks crispy and flaky. But it was a limp mess, not at all crisp or flaky, the crust edges look pretty but they just disintegrated, it was nothing like a real pizza and well, the flavor was bleech... not good at all. No offense at all to the recipe authors ... obviously yours turned out fine. Not mine! I had to throw the whole thing away and couldn't even salvage the toppings. I did try to salvage it first though by sandwiching two pieces together (that last picture) and then trying to crisp it up in a pan like a pizza quesadilla and that was even worse. Yuck. Couldn't eat it. I can't imagine what happened to mine but ... I am broken hearted. Am I the only one who failed at Oopsie pizza making?

Pizza and Waffles

I made the oopsie pizza (awesome)...I baked it in a jellyroll pan and following the instructions for the pizza.

I also made the waffles this morning...TURNED OUT GREAT! If added half scoop protein powder (Designer Whey natural) with the yolks first. Then after I incorporated the whites to the yolk mixture, I added another half scoop! Turned out crispy --- so good!

Thanks so much to everyone for their ideas (and of course, Cleo!)

I finally got around to having an Oopsie Burger yesterday and it was great! It was very messy but that was my fault because I put too many condiments on it. The bun held up just fine though. Here's my photo:

Linda It looks as great and Yummy as a HC burger does! I love alot of condiments on mine too. They are a meal full..when I fixed them that is all I want when I eat it for Lunch or Dinner. I sure wish I could get my pictures to come out as great as yours does. About ready to try a Oopise pizza but I dont want a soggy crust..Does the flax work from keep it from getting soggy?
