Cleochatra's Revoloopsie Rolls (home-made hamburger buns and more)

The recipe looks fantastic, but I'm curious about the taste. Has anyone tried them yet, if so, how are they? Considering they're made with cream cheese, do they taste cheesey. Dumb question, I know but I don't how else to phrase it.........

You won't barf from the cream cheese. You most likely won't even taste it. To me, it adds richness and sweetness, but it's not like a cream cheese danish or anything. I think it really is just there to keep the buns supple so that they won't fall apart and crumble.

I didn't know they'd be such a huge hit with the kids and the hubby, but the kids seriously just sat down and ate a half dozen of my buns just now (I just made a new batch)! My husband eats them plain, and so does my son. They now say they want sandwiches made from them! My kids are super-picky (of of them was just diagnosed as high-functioning autism), and so for them to prefer these to bread is pretty huge.

Okay..I had a grilled cheese sandwich a la Cleo for lunch..Nommie..

Now, for a really perfect shaped RR, you can use those muffin top pans..well oiled or sprayed..They make perfect ones..

Cleo..we would love a You-Tube of you doing this!!! but your little friends added some variety and fun to it!!

Sugarless4life they look yummy and real buttery. Hmmm! ARe they the consistency of bread/muffin? What do they taste like?

Awww shucks! I just noticed that I need cream of tartar. What the heck? I never knew it existed. Hopefully, they'll have it at Ralph's or maybe somebody can email some to me. LOL I wish it were that easy.

Hon, you have to fold the egg mixture into the egg whites VERY SLOWLY .. like a snails pace .. so you don't break down the whites .. and make sure your whites are whipped to be STIFF before you begin folding in the egg mixture...

You could probably make it sans sweetener if you wanted to. I haven't tried it. Good to see you, BTW!

Yeah, no do not do that. Well, unless you want an upper arm workout. I have some new muscles popping from scrape scrape scrape. I did still bake it after I made the mess. I was hoping some magic genie fairy would save them in the oven. AH, no that did not happen, twice.

Here's a tip for stiff egg whites. When I beat egg whites I put a glass bowl and my beaters in the freezer for a while. Not long enough for the bowl to get frosty (you don't want any moisture inside the bowl), but long enough to get really cold. And I try to get my eggs to room temp. before beating. The egg whites are stiff and fluffy in no time.

What does the cream of tartar do? My Grandma always said it was "food bleach" so I never ever bought or used in 17yrs of marriage and I cook/bake a lot. I just always left it out if it called for it. Grandma WUZ crazy tho

The KEY to whipping egg whites is to making sure you get NO yolk in them..otherwise forget about whipping them..

Many peeps break the eggs and one at a time put the whites in a custard cup in case some yolk falls in by accident..(then you can save that white for an omelette later). Do one egg at a time.in the custard cup..then drop in the large bowl.

The whites have to be so stiff that you can hold the bowl upside down and they won't move..

Cream of tartar helps them "hold up"

It's a stabilizer for the egg whites-helps them hold their peaks. You can also use white vinegar. I've never used either-never had a problem whipping them.

An easy way to separate eggs is to crack the egg and let it drop into your clean hand, letting the white slide into the bowl from between slightly spready fingers...messy, but works well and keeps the yolk from breaking.

You'll get better volume if the eggs are at room temperature, and make sure the bowl is completely dry. A copper bowl will produce the best volume.

If there's even the slightest bit of oil or grease or fat of any sort in the bowl the whites will break down and won't get very stiff. They can also break down if you overbeat them, making them runny.

my mom and i have been making the rolls this way for about two years now, though we never use sweetener.

i'm with carolyn...you can't beat the muffin top pan for perfect "bun size" and it's fun to experiment with different seasonings etc.

for example, it really takes on a "hamburger bun" taste & texture when you add sesame seeds to the batter.

Sour cream has more carbs in it, so adjust for that in your carb numbers!

It's fun hearing how people are tweaking the recipe!

You guys separate the eggs with your hands? Eeeeeww....lol.. All you have to do is gently crack the egg in half, then dump the white out of the half that doesnt have the yolk.. then dump the yolk into the empty half...and repeat until all the white is in the bowl...

I made some with mayo.. I still consider them more of 'oopsie' rolls than traditional revolution rolls because I used alot more mayo than recomended, about 5-6 tbsp probably.



They were pretty good, but unfortunantly, I ate all but one tonight :blush: So I might have to take out the sweetener..or just not make them.
