I can't get over you people who are able to use the oopsies as burger buns, mine disintegrate. What are you doing different from the original recipe, anything?

I don't know what to tell you...I just followed the recipe.

I keep an oven thermometer in my oven all the time because it never cooks true to temp...it cooks way too hot... so I have to adjust the setting according to the thermometer...maybe that is your problem.

Mine never disintegrate, even under a Wendy's Baconator or (for Midwesterners) a Portillos Bacon Cheeseburger. I've made them exactly like the original recipe, or by adding a tablespoon or two of flax, lc flour or protein powder to the eggwhites. The ones with an addition are a bit sturdier, but they are all fine.

I think it might be a baking issue. Maybe baking them 5 minutes less, or 5 minutes longer, will help. Also, they are sturdier and more flexible after a day or two...at least mine are.

Thanks again for a great recipe, "cleochatra" aka Jamie!!

My oven temperature is fine, I have a thermometer in the oven that I read. Adding the flax or protein powder may help. It isn't that I don't like the oopsies, it is just that when I try to make a sandwich they fall apart. Hence, I have gone to eating my burgers wrapped with leaf lettuce or I make a flax "bread" that I use for open face sandwiches.

I've never had a problem with mine falling apart under a juicy burger - unless the oopsies weren't baked quite long enough, or weren't dried out enough when I stored them. It's kinda hard to get them dry enough in a high humidity area, since with all that cream cheese, they tend to absorb moisture from the air. But anyhow, I usually pop them in the toaster oven on the lightest setting just to dry out the outsides so that they don't stick to the plate and my fingers, before making a sandwich or burger.

Last time I made any, I mistakenly set the oven for 350F instead of 300F. They got very well done/browned, but surprisingly didn't burn, and weren't nearly as moist when I would get a pair out of the fridge to make a sandwich - I even skipped the toaster oven treatment a couple times when I used them for a sandwich with that batch. I may start baking them at a 325F and see if that helps them dry out a better, while not getting quite so browned.

Madam, maybe that is my problem, not letting them dry out enough or baking them long enough. I will try again. All I know is that the french toast looks way yummy too! Even if I don't get them sturdy enough for buns.

Mine don't hold up as well if I use them the first day I bake them. They are much more bready the next day (I leave them out overnight to dry out). After I let them sit a day they work like a charm. I just use the 3 egg, 3 oz cream cheese recipe - love these things!!!

I have to agree, they MUST dry out for a day to get the bread consistency...its funny cause I was thinking our friend Alton from food network could do a whole show on the chemical reactions that occur in the making of an ooopsie !

When I first take mine out of the oven they are very meringue like but magically overnight turn to bread.....

NGJ, I can picture Alton and his antics doing a show on oopsies. It would sure be entertaining.

OK, you guys, you got me in the mood to try the oopsies again and dry them out.

I am going to make some of those today. I really am totallah craving a Baconator. I am all for a Red Robin burger in a lettuce wrap, but when it comes to Wendy's I have got to get my groove bun on.

The worst thing about Oopsies is if I don't clean the whisks and the bowl right away, it takes forevs to get them cleaned off later!

Is the baconator a Wendy's burger? I don't eat out too often due to $$$ and I figure I can make stuff better here at home. But, I do like to have some options.

Yes, Wendy's makes the Baconator....I've never had one because I am not fond of Wendy's food but I heard they were really good.

He will stare longingly at your sandwich as you attempt to eat, all the while letting his food sit in front of him because he no longer wants it. He wants yours. I gave in about 2/3 of the way through my sandwich and let him finish it. The little begger.
That is so funny. Sounds exactly like what my daughter would do

OH...MY...GOSH...I made oopsie strawberry shortcake yesterday night and it was amazing. I took an oopsie, cut it in half, drizzled 2 tsp of vanilla syrup on the inside. Then I whipped 1/4 c HWC in my magic bullet, put half in between the layers and the rest on top and topped the whole thing with a few strawberries. My mom (who doesn't like ANY low carb dessert) told me it tasted like a regular strawberry shortcake and it really did. I'm in love Thank you cleo!
