I took some round pans and spread out the oopsie batter in them and made a couple of oopsie tortillas or (oopillas ) I put garlic powder in the batter and put shredded cheddar on top of them before they were baked. Normally when DH eats his soft tacos with tortillas, I eat a taco salad. BUT NOT TONIGHT! I had the best soft tacos in the world tonight!

I can't tell you how great it was to eat "soft tacos" again!

Cleo you are my hero! I am a dunce in the kitchen and even I was able to make these. They are really good. I put cheddar cheese on top with a sprinkle of onion powder. It will be great to have "buns" on my burgers again! TY TY

For those having trouble with the egg whites maybe add a bit more cream of tartar? Thats what I did and mine came out perfect. Here they are minus one cause i ate it lol

Dear Cleo,


You have given a teenage boy his hamburgers back. And for this he salutes you.



And enslaves his poor sainted mother to the kitchen. He WILL be learning how to make his own damn rolls soon.

ThankS!

Cool, Yolande! Let me know!
Tried the Xanath they were Uber Fluffy whites. I have not been using Tartar.

Yeah, you gotta use the Xanthan with the tartar

Also, I should add that the xanthan should be added gradually, as you are whipping, and after the first stiff peaks begin to form. . . .

You guys are making me roll around laughing!

Bunnymuffin! OMG. I want to adopt you. You are the best!


Desertrosenla-- OMG-- those are beautiful, girl! I love it! You did tremendously!

lcoldtimer-- what a great idea! I was wondering what the heck you do if you'd rather use cream. And if it works with cook and serve, then hot dang! That would be totally sweet!

As for the cheese, while it's in the bag, put the cheese (in the bag) in the palm of your hand and really mold it. Use a lot of pressure. I squeeze the crumbs to the cheese. The crumbs aren't big enough to permeate the cheese, but you want it to stick, so you really have to push hard and use a bit of force. I roll it about in my hand, and then push some onto the ends and fry it ASAP.

So, the chicken works out fine with shake and bake method, but for the cheese, you really have to form the crumbs TO the cheese.

flower75-- I didn't have any more buns this morning because my husband ate three burgers yesterday and horked my buns. I ate my BLT on cheese. LOL I need to get back into the kitchen so I can have more things than cheese BLTs.

PalmTreeGal-- I am so glad you like these! With hazelnut davincis and butter, I feel like I'm eating french toast. I love these. I agree with you-- they're so much like bread in some ways, but the flavor is unobtrusive.

Dream-- I'm glad these made good soft tacos for you! I have used them as gyro wraps, but not for tacos yet!

rottinluv-- I wouldn't change the recipe for XL eggs. I use large or XL.

Not tried the chocolate oopsie ice cream sandwiches yet, but will in the near future. Peanut butter, strawberry, chocolate chip ice cream rolls sound fantastic. With these great ideas how can we possibly not lose weight when we can use all these ideas for substitutions. WOW

these ideas

Yum Yum Yum. Was so nice getting to have an IN and OUT Burger something other than protein style. I ordered it protein style but put it between two oopsies and WOW! Good stuff! It gets so hard not eating bunless burgers you know? This means I dont have to anymore.

Im gonna make some more later and try adding some raspberries and sugar free raspberry flavoring that I have. Maybe a breakfasty type item for me. Will let you guys know how it turns out! Wish me luck as Im usually a nightmare in the kitchen lol

Okay..Oopsies are really a "green treat" because the birds/squirrels get the leftover buns..They are very happy and gobble them up..So recycle girls and guys, your squirrels will thank you.

Cleo..Dr. Atkins is smiling on you from heaven..

One more question. When you guys are doubling the recipe, (which I really need to do!) are you mixing it all at once and baking one batch at a time, or can you put both pans in at the same time?

I mix all at once and I bake two pans at once, I just switch them halfway through baking so they will brown evenly.

I made a triple batch tonight and mixed everything in the same bowls as usual. I bake on a cookie sheet, so I made sure there was room for all.

Adopt me? That would be SWELL! Then I'd finally have a friend that I could play action figures with and we could be all like "pew pew pew!" and stuff.

Seriously, this man cub of mine loves your bread (I was gonna say buns, but I don't think I want my 14 year lusting after your buns yet.) so much that he posed for this photo knowing it would be on the interwebs and he NEVER has agreed to me posting his picture on the internets before. (As long as he never finds my myspace, I'm safe.)

Although he is requesting a savory version now, because he said his ham sandwich tasted too pancake-y today. Demanding snot anyway.

Thanks again, you rock!

OMG!!!!

I have been lurking through this thread for a while now. I have made the Atkins version of the roll and figured you all were kidding yourselves. I finally gave in and made a batch tonight. My taste test was a roast beef sandwich with Pepper Jack cheese. It was so good!! I was stunned. I was running around the house asking everyone to take a bite of my sandwich!! They did and my daughter asked for another bite which I declined!

As I have been going through the thread, I came across the cream puff you made Cleo. It looked like it would taste like an elephant ear or funnel cake (whichever you prefer) from the carnival!! I can't wait to try that...But I have to wait until induction is over DEFINITELY!

Thank you for your cleverness, Cleo! I am sold!

p.s. I am going to Red Robin this week!

My son is 15. When he is wearing pants and not rocking out on his electric guitar to Bohemian Rhapsody, he'd make a great brother. Bring your friends. I'll feed you Baconators.

Thanks for the hearty guffaw you gave me this morning.

shannoncathy-- that sounds FABULOUS! Work it, girl! I'm doing oopsies next time instead of Little Caesars pizza scrapings. I feel like pucky on a stick.

s1mon3-- Oh, do it! Red Robin! I'll meet you there! We'll bring our bun contraband!

Just make sure the bun is big enough diameterwise. I made that mistake at Carls Jr once. The bun is strong and supple, but if it's not wide enough to hold the patty and fixins, even with the burger wrap that you replace after swapping out the bun, you might have a bit if a mess! I always make a couple of big ones just in case.

Tell me about boys at that age. My 14 yr old ate 3 buns in a row-saying he didn't know if he liked them or not but just kept on inhaling them. After 3 he decided he liked them-maybe it took that many before he actually tasted them as he gobbled. Cleo, Little Caesars toppings do the same to me-I think the sauce is loaded with sugar-that's usually what happens to me with sugary stuff.

Hehehe! Around our house I have heard the kids play with action figures. They weren't saying, "pew pew pew" though. They were saying, "****** ****** ******"! Had to help them come up with better action figure noises.

Thanks for the tip, I make sure to do that! For breakfast today, I had a sausage/egg/cheese mcmuffin! It tasted betta than Mickey Dee's. I am looking forward to all the variations. Onion powder (onion rolls), pepperoni bread, my mouth is watering and I've already eaten!!! I think I will hold off on the sweet ones, I doubt if I will be able to control myself, so I must steer clear!

Thanks again!

My teens ate all my oopsies! They made sandwiches and wouldn't use the white bread we had. They said they liked the oopsies better. Time to double my batches.
