Can I use microwave instead of a regular oven?

I don't know if they would brown in a microwave oven like they should? You just need to come and live with me. I will adopt you.

I haven't ever heard of anybody trying to microwave any version of these rolls, so I can't advise about that. I always bake mine. Not sure egg whites would do well with a microwave and I'm not willing to waste my stuff to experiment! Sorry I can't be of help.

Oh thank you. Tip: always use camera phones!

No actually this was taken using a digicam. But I swear, camera phones shave like 30 pounds off me.

I'm sad, we don't have oven here. Oh well I guess Id just buy the ticket then - ONE WAY!

[COLOR="Blue"]Your picture IS adorable Antigone! That's a good tip that I'm surely gonna test!!

Anyway, here is the picture of my Revolution Roll (cottage cheese based) that I added the protein powder to. I also make my rolls in a muffin top pan and then flip the rolls with the bumpy part inside the sandwich/burger so that it looks more like a bun. Like I said the addition of the protein powder really does make them more bread like, and my powder only adds 3 carbs per scoop for the whole 6 rolls, so not a lot of carbs. They pretty much look the same as the regular rolls but I just had to show 'em off. Ain't they just beeuteeful?? Love these things!

[COLOR="Purple"]Thank you. I was very impressed with how the protein powder improved these (thank you Alcmene) and without adding a lot of carbs too! I hate that you don't have an oven!! If I could make you some and bring them to you I would!!! I've done them so many times now that it takes nothing for me to whip up a batch now. Though I do have fond memories of how severely I destroyed them the very first time I tried to make them!! What a mess it was.

I did not mention ... although in the original recipe Dr. Atkins said the rolls could take up to an hour at 300 degrees, I have them down to only about 30 minutes or slightly under now. My oven is old but if I get it fired up good and hot it doesn't take that long at all.

[COLOR="Indigo"]I just love showing off my buns!

Another freshly baked batch of original Revolution Rolls made with cottage cheese, adding in a scoop of natural flavored protein powder, and baked in a muffin top pan. Now you tell me what is wrong with that?! Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum![/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]By the way I am also an Oopsie fan, and a Cleo fan for that matter ... unfortunately, cream cheese does not love me at all! So I usually do the original old timers Revolution Roll when I'm cycled into Stillman's or I replace the cottage cheese with mayo when I am cycled to Atkins.

Anyway, muffin top pans make just the top or "head" of a muffin. They work great for these rolls. Apparently they are hard to find anywhere except online for some insane reason. I ordered mine through Amazon and its also a great non-stick. I never have to use any oil at all on it. Here's a picture of one if that helps.[/COLOR]

Mini Cocoa Cakes

[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]I couldn't settle on what exactly to call this so I just called it mini cocoa cakes.

I'll probably add more cocoa next time, but it was pretty good as is I have to say. I didn't want to get into making the real low carb chocolate ganache so I tried to thicken up a combo of kahlua and chocolate syrups with a tad bit of xanthan gum to sprinkle on top, but it didn't work so well. Got too thick. What I REALLY wanted to do was sandwich two of 'em with a layer of whipped cream in between, but I settled for this! Have no idea on the carb count - depends on your protein powder.

Mini Cocoa Cakes

3 eggs, separated
½ teaspoon cream of tartar

3 tablespoons cottage cheese*
½ tablespoon (heaping) cocoa
½ tablespoon Splenda
1 tablespoon chocolate DaVinci syrup
2 scoops of low carb vanilla or chocolate protein powder (about 2 heaping tblsp.)

Separate eggs; whip egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks are formed. Meanwhile, blend together the yolks, cottage cheese, cocoa, Splenda, syrup and protein powder. Carefully fold into egg whites, spoon into piles on a Teflon or greased baking pan or muffin top pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with whipped cream, sprinkle with cocoa and drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired. Enjoy!

*can substitute equal amounts of ricotta, mayonnaise, cream cheese or do it with an Oopsie![/COLOR]

hahahaha I'm greatly amused that women have the exact same pissing matches that you excuse us guys of. Only difference is we're much more honest in ours, and a lot less polite about it.

Yeah. These last two posts are exactly what I meant when I said we guys are just more honest and less polite about ours.

You know, this statement is just about as stupid as anything I've ever heard.

As far as I see, this is a thread about Revolution Rolls and stuff made with Revolution Rolls.

Other threads are threads dedicated to Oopsies and stuff made with Oopsies.

That's about all there is to it.

Nothing to read between the lines.

Nothing sinister to see here.

So like my teenager woulda said ...

Whatever.

[COLOR="Purple"]Okay, tried something new. Made my regular Rev. Rolls tonight - the ones I use for burgers or sammies - and this time I added to my yolks and cottage cheese, one scoop of natural flavored whey protein, PLUS a tablespoon of heavy cream AND a tablespoon of softened (not melted) butter.

Oh my goodness did these bad boys smell soooo good cooking and coming out of the oven, so much so that I HAD to eat one hot! Ya know, I don't usually do that, but it was pretty darned good. Then I dabbed a little more butter on there and I was well, totally in heaven! So give it a try... ya might like it!!!

Oh, and the best I can figure the carb count is still .5 a roll.

Mary, I started making mine w/ cottage cheese and I have to say, they are not as moist as the ones w/ mayo (but then again, not as fattening either!) but I love the way they hold up w/ the cottage cheese! I actually put in 4 oz and they are perfect! I was leery of using the CC, but it works out perfect! I made french dips for Kevin and I today and they were GREAT!!!

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]Yeah, the extra oil in the mayo does seem to make a difference. I like to make the mayo ones when I'm cycled into Atkins. I thought about that fat and then Kitty said she tried some with coconut oil and it didn't hurt them, so I tried the butter with the lower fat cottage cheese and it worked out well. That's Atkins though. I think a full fat cottage cheese would be the best, but when I'm cycled into Stillman's that's a little too high. Okay for Atkins though.[/COLOR]

Savory Revolution Rolls

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]Okay, these have become my new favorite savory roll. I haven't calculated them but they are a bit more carby compared to the regular rolls. The texture is great and I love them, and I've been losing eating them so none of the ingredients have affected me on the scale either. I'm sure these would work well with substituting any of the usuals instead of the cottage cheese.

My new favorite sweet to follow!

Savory Revolution Rolls

4 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1 large scoop of natural flavor protein powder
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon butter, softened
Pinch Splenda

Optional: Lightly sprinkle tops with parmesan or cheddar cheese before baking[/COLOR]

Sweet Maple Revolution Rolls

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]I am totally in love with these! I've had them plain all by themselves, with just butter, with butter and a little more SF syrup, with a little whipped cream, and with butter and SF Raspberry jam... yummy and delish all ways so far! Again, kept losing eating them so nothing in them is affecting the scale. Enjoy!

ETA: Forgot the cream of tartar!

Sweet Maple Revolution Rolls

4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons cottage cheese
1 large scoop natural or vanilla flavored whey protein powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 tablespoon SF maple syrup
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 tablespoon Splenda[/COLOR]

These sounds so good. I have a problem with the s/f maple syrup so I wonder if I could use some davinci syrup in it's place. Whatcha think?

[COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]I haven't tried this specific combination with Da Vinci's but I did use the chocolate Da Vinci's syrup in the cocoa ones I made, so it might work in this one. Can't really see why not! I just liked to put the maple syrup on plain rolls, and decided to try it IN the roll and it worked! [/COLOR]
