LOL I have been hiding them from my dh just so that they are mine (he doesn't lowcarb) I guess that could be a warning sign of things to come!

Holy crap! I made cream puffs from the oopsie rolls (thanks for the idea Cleo) and they were fantastic! I used two packets of splenda and put a little vanilla in the yolks. I was able to make two regular Oopsie rolls and 12 mini cream puff rolls. I also made the sugar free cook and serve chocolate pudding (with calorie countdown milk) and I don't think I can ever go back to instant pudding. I ate two while the pudding was still warm and I was in low carb heaven!

Thanks Cleo and everyone for all the great ideas! Long live Oopsies!

I have thyroid problems too. Yes it's true that hypothyroid people are warned against using flax. But it's OK if it's baked. Here's an old post from nonstickpam about flax and thyroid:

Flax seed or cold pressed flax seed oil is contraindicated for those who are hypothyroid. The phytoestrogens bind the thyroid hormones and create an imbalance in the estrogen/progesterone in the body.

Cooking/baking flaxseed meal (like in muffins) kills the estrogenic properties. Soy is different...the phytoestrogens in soy canNOT be cooked out.

Thanks, Dreamchaser, maybe that's where I read it, or heard about it. I knew I'd heard something. I am using a couple T. of almonds in the oopsies right now, maybe I will switch to flax. Seems like I've forgotten alot of things I used to know. :blush:

I just made a batch of these for the first time, it was very easy. I added some garlic powder and italian seasoning and they smell great. I used my muffin top pan so it made 12 3 inch rolls. I took them out when the looked brown on top but I didnt think they were done so put them in for a few more minutes. I hope these turn out,they seem to be sticking to the pan really bad, I tried to take one out of the pan and it was sticking but also didnt seem quite done so maybe after a few more minutes in the oven they will be easier to get off?? how do you store these?? thanks

I'm late to the party, but thank you so much for these, Cleo!

I leave mine in a sealed plastic container for two days and that makes the texture perfect--soft and chewy. I don't even need to think about bread any more.

Thank you so much, Mazzie! I need to put mine into the refrigerator. I forgot and then had to toss mine away yesterday!

I don't think about bread anymore, either, now that you mention it! Thanks for giving me something new to be thankful for today!

Brenda-- I don't use the muffin pans for the same reason-- they are an effort to clean! As for the storage, I keep them in a baggie in the fridge after the first day (with the seal open to let air come in). Then when you want one, just take it out and let it rest for 15-30 minutes.

These can also be frozen. Zip the bag totally closed in the freezer. When you take them out, let them rest until they are at room temperature in the open air. Then you can store them in a bag again.

About two days.... because they get eaten by then!

Actually, I've double batched it and they kept for about 6 days.

I decided to go the high fibre way and to 5 eggs and 5 oz cream cheese I added one teaspoon of xantan gum to the yolks and I sprinkled 2 teaspoon psylliym husk to the fluffy white.
It does not change the taste or the look but it does give me a fibre outlet. I never use splenda or spices because I found that it does smell good when it is cooking but I cannot taste it in the final product.

Dreamchaser and Lindaokc - Here is a link with some further discussion of flax seed and thyroid. I guess like most supplements out there there are going to be those that support it and others who will not. I guess it comes down to personal choice. I worked at a vitamin company for 8 years and never heard of any negative effects from Flax Seed. In fact, many would switch to this after not being able to handle taking Omega 3 fish oil because they would constantly burp it back up after taking.

Ok to take flaxseed oil tablets???? : Thyroid Disease Forum : Active Low-Carber Forums

Lindaokc - Whatever you decide to do is your choice. I just wanted to make sure you knew that there are many that support taking it and feel it is very beneficial. Good luck either way.

Brenda-- I'd keep them no longer than 5-6 days.

Yolande-- I eat a flax cracker for the extra fiber. I flax!

Revolution Rolls could be made with cream cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese or mayo. I have never tried an oopsie with mayo but you would just substitute 3 oz of mayo for 3 oz of cream cheese. It should work the same but I have not tried it yet.

Mayo works great and is my favorite way-I also leave out the Splenda when I use mayo. Same ounce substitution.

With NO offense to my boopie lisa (I lurves yew) I am not a mayonnaise fan in this recipe. It's too caloricly dense for me.

Three ounces of mayonnaise in a recipe would just kill people who are trying to keep their calories a bit lower.

That said, maybe it would be all right for occasional use, but for daily use, I'd stick to cream cheese.

Try 3 tbl then-I have both ways and each version has turned out. I like the mayo version in a turkey & swiss sammie.

The TBSP puts me back into the grody original recipe. I made the original. It's nasty. I've disliked RR's since 1984 when my parents first made them.

I know everyone has different tastes, but I need the extra cream cheese or the item just isn't savory and stable enough for the things folks tend to want to use them for.

For folk who can't or don't want the CC, that's understandable to use the 3 Tbsp of mayo, but man! I can't do that.

I think this recipe has been so popular due to the extra cream cheese! It's all over the place, now! So for the folks who've been there and done that, the oopsies are the new wave of bun enjoyment.

(out of context, that could sound really strange)

Mine are always stable-it's just personal taste-I like the way the ones with mayo taste and of course I also like the chocolate ones w/cc too!

I agree with you on the mayo, Cleo. I have made them with mayo, cream cheese, and ricotta and the mayo ones are major ick to me. Ugh! It is the 3 ounces of cream cheese in this recipe that makes all the difference in the WORLD for me. I am forever grateful for your oopsie!! I happen to add a Tbs. of whey protein powder to mine for some extra stability. I love these things and it is a joy to have a sandwich for lunch again.
Thanks for the oopsie revolution!
