I believe they are about 123 cals each if you make 12 with that recipe. That's my closest guess anyway!

Oh how cool! Thanks, Nancy. BTW I made the pizza dough version tonight with all the typical pizza toppings and DH declared it "the best low carb pizza crust EVER!" So - thanks again!

Char...I'm confused (not a shocker ). Did you make the pizza dough crust with all your tweaks from the first page of this thread? Or just do the original Nancy's version?

What size crust did you get? 14 inch or 16 inch?

Hi Char! I used 12 oz. mixed shredded cheese blend from Trader Joe's (mozz, jack, cheddar), 3 jumbo eggs, 1 scoop Designer Whey protein powder, and 1 tablespoon each raw wheat bran and flax meal, plus garlic powder, oregano, and basil. Did it all in the Cuisinart, and spread onto my 16" pizza pan that I covered in nonstick foil. I didn't go ALL the way to the edges so I'd say it was more like 14-15" when all was said and done.

We had it cold for breakfast - YUMMMEEEEEEEEEEE!

WOE: Atkins, etc.
Here are my tweaks on this idea (OK, they didn't start out as tweaks, but became tweaks when I realized I was out of unflavored PP (altho I had vanilla), had only large eggs and my Mozzarella cheese had gone bad!)
4 lg eggs
1/3 c Carbquick
1 T raw wheat bran
1 T flax meal
1 2/3 c cheddar cheese (I had extra and thought, what the heck?)

I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spread it all on. I ended up cooking it for 14 minutes, and it never really turned brown, but after cooling and cutting into squares I was very pleased. This will be great with chili, and is slightly reminiscent of the jalepeno bread I used to buy ages ago (before my metabolism went kaput.)

Im getting tons of feedback from my blog about the original pizza recipes, and the tweaks from you gals.

I've got a link directing the readers back to this thread. We're getting a bunch of hits! Thanks for everyone who has tried this and commented!

Gosh, Nancy, if I'd known you were gonna make my photos world-famous - I'd have used the matching placemats to my china set! LOL!!

DH absolutely LOVES these "buns" - he suggested I try making them in the waffle iron - we used to make SherrieLee's (I think) waffle bread and he loves the little "pockets" to hold the fixin's in - so will try that and report back.

Well the batter works just great in a waffle iron! I made sandwiches for dinner. I got 11 out of the batch - not all are "full waffles" as some are more round than square, but it matters not - they're really tasty and crispier this way, at least fresh they are. After being bagged and refrigerated - we shall see.

BTW these would make awesome induction-friendly waffles too! Just leave out any savory stuff and top with butter and SF syrup!

Char~ I devised a recipe with only eggs/cheddar/jack/cheese/baking powder/garlic and taco seasoning for a base, that my DD says tastes just like a Cheesy Gordito Crust from Taco Bell, after it is topped..

Versatility, oh my goodness. I'm gonna post when I get the pictures and the recipe perfected.

I love all the improvisation!

You are way smarter than me about this; I am a ROOKIE!

My 12 oz. pkg. of Trader Joe's shredded 3 cheese blend was exactly 3 cups - so I'd say 6 oz. = ~ 1.5 cups....

I just made another batch in my muffin top pans. They are perfect for bologna sandwiches!

And we DID eat them as waffles on Sunday - I added 1 tsp. baking powder to the recipe "just because" and they were really beautiful, crispy, and very very good with SF syrup and spicy sausage patties.

I've made my own tweak to this for a breakfast item........

Made a small batch for testing purposes, but it seemed to work out pretty good warm out of the oven, we'll see what they are like when cold tomorrow.....

1 extra-large / jumbo egg
1/3 scoop unflavored Whey protein powder
1 teaspoon raw wheat bran
1 teaspoon flax meal
3 oz. shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 oz. Cream Cheese
1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of Granular Spenda.

Blitzed it all up in my mini-chopper/mini-food processor, spooned the batter into standard muffin tins and got 6 mini-breads........

I've got trouble tasting anything that isn't strongly flavoured, so you might want to adjust the Splenda and Cinnamon Measurements for your personal tastes.

Here is a pic, minus the one sacrificed for taste testing.......
(For a size reference, that's a standard piece of 8x11 printer paper they are sitting on)

Barbo, to the original Oopsie recipe, I add 1 scoop unflavored whey protein powder (I use Designer brand), 1 tablespoon (the kitchen drawer kind) raw wheat bran, and 1 tablespoon flaxmeal.

I do NOT use any sweetener in mine. That's it, simple as can be!

Not at all. They're cheesy good!

My DH won't eat the Oopsies because they're too eggy for him, but he loves these.

I don't have x-large or jumbo - do you think just adding 1 extra egg would work? I have everything else.

Yep, I think that will work OK.

Here's a good conversion chart:

Char - I don't how I missed this before! , but those look great! I love the pizza crust and never thought about tweaking it for burger/sandwich size buns. Great idea and I'm gonna make some this weekend I think!

You said to store them in the fridge, I think, but do you know if they'd freeze well?
