I thought the rolls tasted great with mayo. But I love mayo with just about anything anyway.

I just made my third batch today and I let DD and DH have one. I did not really want to share but...

I use parchment paper and they have come out beautifully every time. This is my new favorite thing!

I haven't tried using parchment paper yet. Did they stick to it? Did you spray it with Pam?

These rolls are a lifesaver! Well, ok, they are BETTER than a lifesaver!

They do not stick AT ALL. I did not spray it with anything. They come off clean

I agree they are a lifesaver. I can't believe it took me so long to finally make them.

Cleo...you ROCK

I just made these about an hour ago and they are delicious! I made some on a baking sheet and put the rest of the batter into cupcake molds and made mini rolls.

kougra-- I'm so glad you like them! I am going to use some tomorrow for mini pizzas!

Almond-- I'm sorry they taste eggy! I need to lick your buns and see if you left out the Splenda. That helps. You could also try adding garlic powder. I am not a fan of egg taste, and mine really haven't tasted eggy?

I saw one of the posts where someone said that you could sub 2 egg whites for one of the egg yolks for a less eggy taste. You might want to try that.

Cleo...Your Oopsie rolls are da bomb!! Thank you, Thank you!!!

I have never whipped egg whites before, so I was hesitant to make them. The first batch was perfect. Thursay had a Cajun turkey sandwich, Friday had a double jr Whataburger with cheese add bacon (haven't had a burger with a bun in over a year) and this morning I toasted two and smeared with butter, cinn and splenda.

With my next batch I am going to make french toast sticks. I will slice the rolls into strips and dip in butter, cinn and splenda or SF syrup. Yum yum!!

Ladybugg-- that sounds so wonderful!


I am going to pull the roll out of the freezer in a few hours. I wanted to give it a full 24 hours to do its thang.

For some reason when I put then in frig in bag they seem to stick to one another, they dont do this if i leave out. Is there something we can do to prevent sticky buns?

lil-- I find that after they've been in the fridge, you take them out and let them 'rest' with the bag open. They'll come apart again.

The main trick is to let them cool completely on a rack post-cooking, but they should easily pull apart when closer to room temp again!

Give me like 4 more hours on the frozen one. I popped one into the freezer yesterday at about noon. I want the full 24 hour effect.

Ok.. My brother wants me to make him some and freeze them if they work..... He is an constrution worker. SO the idea of taking his own buns and putting a burger on it is very appealing.

Actually, what I should have said was I think Cleo said that if you freeze them she thinks they would not come out all nice and soft again..

I could just give them to him.... But he is not really good at remembering stuff... So he'd probably leave those out for like 3 wks and complain to me that they didn't keep.

His roomate would probably try them and eat them all and then brother'd get home and they'd be all gone.

Made some last night

I finally made some and love the taste.
I'm not sure about the texture for holding up a burger, especially those big ol' burgers y'all have been having
I think my batter was a bit runny, but they came out OK.
I'm going to try again to see if mixing my egg whites at room temp will help.
I found a site that explains how to get the best fluffy egg whites and it said that room temp whites (but separate them cold and let sit) and NO fat in them (no yolk or any kind of fat in them).
It also said to start the mixer at medium speed until foamy then turn it up to high speed to finish them off.
It proceeded to illustrate how to fold in other mixes so you do not break down the whites.
Hopefully this will produce a better texture to hold up a big burger, cause I want one

Thanks for trying these and giving your feedback. Seeing you incorporate them into your menus for different things helps me immeasurably. I'm trying to expand my food repertoire beyond Wendy's Baconators, see...

abvidrine-- Oh, girl, are you in for a treat! Even if the buns flatten slightly, I've found the rock at places like Red Robin, where you can use these even on their HUGE burgers. I took mine in (smuggled them in my purse). When my burger came, I unwrapped the paper (even with their regular buns, they wrap), placed one bun on the bottom. Then I rolled the burger over with the wrap and replaced the second bun. Then I rewrap and it held together just like the regular bun, BUT it tasted better!

Buns don't taste like anything. They're just a vehicle for holding food together in our hands. These perform the same duty, but for virtually no carb or calorie impact whatsoever!
