I made these yesterday, didn't have any buttermilk so I used a small amount of sour cream and double cream. I cooked them in a frying pan using an egg ring (nice and round) and they were great, didn't stick to my fingers. I would use this recipe again!

Thanks

GwnStfni-

Thank you so much for telling us about the pancake maker! I searched all of the kitchen isles today at Kmart and was about to give up when I found it on a clearance shelf, just the one, and it was $15! I was so excited! This was the same price of the muffin top pans I found on Ebay.

I've made this many times with my belgian waffle maker and didn't like the holes it left. The pancake cooker took are of that! Yeah! I also substituted almond flour, since I didn't have any bake mix. They came out ok, a little grainy because of the almond bits not cooked all the way but certainly edible. I have wheat protein isolate coming, can't wait to use that.

Cheri Rocks!

I asked Cheri to make this a sticky for us, since it keeps getting buried on page 2,3,4 etc. I know a lot of us have tried this, but I want the newbies to see it too!

I'M NOT WORTHY



I made these waffles tonight and was sure that I would somehow mess it up, but once I tasted a piece they were absolutely great!!!!!!! My fiance tasted one (and he's not even doing atkins) and said that they were good

I think next time I will put less sugar or maybe I did goof and put a little to much suger but they are still great. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe.

Also btw my fiance just picked up my new waffle maker today and it was only a little over $6.00!!! At superwalmart, so if there's one in your area check it out. It's a Sunbeam waffle maker and works great.

Wafflemaker recipe book

I found the Toastmaster wafflemaker at K-Mart for $12.99 on the clearance shelf. It was not in a box and did not have a recipe book. It works just fine for the buns. Are there any really good recipes in the book that we can use legally? If so, I will try to get one from the manufacturer.

this may have been asked and answered....but can this be made with cream or half and half instead of buttermilk?

1/4 cup of half and half plus 1 teaspoon of vinegar and you have the same thing as buttermilk, as far as cooking goes.

The reason we cook with buttermilk is that buttermilk has acid in it. The acid reacts with the baking powder or baking soda and adds a little kick to it and helps things rise better. So the vinegar will take the place of the acid in the buttermilk when you add it to the half and half.

Re: Best Burger Bun Yet! Super Easy Too!

I made the recipe without the seasonings, 1/8 cup of half and half instead of 1/4 cup buttermilk and used 1/8 of a cup for each waffle. They are 88 calories each and 1 net carb. It will be fun to play with this recipe more like the rest of you did.
It is true that if you use a little less they do come out more round.
I really enjoyed them.
I sprayed it with Pam just before putting the first batch in and nothing stuck and was nothing to clean up but I did take the dish rag and go over it.
I got 14 out of the recipe and I can see where they are not only good waffles, and of course hamburger buns, sandwich bread, sweet treats with some sort of filling, and even for a hot dog roll and I'll probably come up with a ton more.
Thanks so much Sherrie for the recipe and for all of you who added your spin on it.
I ended up doing a search for all of your recipes Sherrie and saved them all.

ok, Im going against the norm here. I tried these the other nite. I made it with the half-half with vinegar...plus everything else.

First of all, they fell apart using my waffle maker. They were so sof it seemed...that they split in half...I put them in the center of my waffle maker . Where the middle seam is, the waffle/bread broke in two...which prevented me from using it as a bun of any type.

So then I tried putting them in the skillet. They held shape and did ok, cept they started to burn, even with the heat as low as it could go..

then came the test...eating them....i gave a piece to my family, to try...and took one too.....none of us could eat them. They were sooooo sweet...we even tried putting something on them...didnt work. I had to ultimately throw the whole batch in the trash



maybe they would have been better without the splenda....i dont know. I dont think I will try these again tho. I will have to find another 'bread' recipe.

Tried these and neither I or my 11yo son can believe them! They're GREAT!

I made them with shredded cheddar cheese. My son kept stealing them!

I must say I was VERY SKEPTICAL, but now I'm a true believer! Thanks for this awesome recipe!

These "Buns" ROCK

These are so versatile. I also use them as waffles. Toast them and put butter and sugar free syrup on them. UUMMM......

I tried these this evening. They are wonderful and so easy. I just dumped everything in the food processer, used 1/8th cup of batter for each one and got 18 waffles.

I made my own baking mix with soy flour and whey protein.

Had one warm with almond butter.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Okay, the biggest problem I'm having now is how to HIDE THEM from my son! He likes this recipe better than anything I've ever made for him!

He eats them as burger buns, with cheese melted on them or just with butter. This morning he checked the refrigerator and announced "No more WAFFLES???"

Great stuff!!

I don't have a waffle maker and can't afford one right now so I baked mine in the oven on 350 degrees until golden brown. I love them....been eating on them every since I made them about 5 days ago...THANK YOU FOR THE RECIPE. It has kept me from cheating...big time.

How did you bake them, MelodyVAKS? Did you just drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet? How long did you bake them?

I sprayed a cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray and yes, I dropped them by spoonfulls onto the pan. As for how long...I'm not really sure, I just waited until they were golden brown, probably about 15-20 minutes. Next time I bake them...which will probably be this weekend cuz I'm out and miss them lol..I will keep up with the time and post it here next week.

Between those and the crepe/tortilla recipe I feel like a free woman lol...I can actually eat sandwiches again and love the tortilla wraps...all of this is saving me much $$$$


thankyou

These "buns" which look more like bread in my belgian waffle maker have been a real godsend for me. I use them for sandwiches and waffles - excellent with butter and sugar free syrup. Made a fresh batch tonight and threw in approx 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar and broken up pieces of deli sliced ham.....came out great! Someone on another board was looking for "commuter food". This would definitely fit the bill.

Read thru all this info a couple weeks back &
had to wait for a break in my super busy schedule
to get my chance to make them. Was happy to
see they are as good as folks said. Did the first
batch in my waffle iron, but did the next batch
in my muffin top pan. That was the best! Perfect
nice round shape. Mom gave me the pan a long
time ago & I had never used it. Glad I hadn't
given it away! Am going to try freezing some out
of this batch & see how that works. I cook ahead
alot & that sure would help me out. Tomorrow dh
& I are both off for Labor Day weekend & I'm going
to try one of the cinnamon versions as pancakes.
DH has missed them & I found the Log Cabin SF
syrup. The DiVinci syrups I found were way too
expensive.
Thanks for all the good tips everyone!

I've been playing with this recipe over the weekend.

I found that it's really important to make sure the batter has a slightly thick quality to it. TIn my area, I can only find the 1% buttermilk, so I added more Atkins mix that way, i so t keeps the waffles from coming out too limp. It makes them more substantive and more like bread.

I also tried the recipe with my pizzelle maker.

So far, I seem to like them very thin or very thick!

I haven't tried any sweet recipes yet, but it occurred to me that a low carb cannoli recipe could be easily be created .

Thanks Sherri barefoot

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

These are wonderful. After reading through all the thread I just finished making these this morning. The only change I made was to add a couple of teaspoons vital wheat gluten. Novice at this way of cooking but thought the addition might "bread" it up a bit. They are delicious.

I got 19 out of mine instead of 18 so that means the extra one has no carbs or calories right?

Had it hot from the waffle maker with a bit of butter.

Yummmmmmmmmmm!

They are great, aren't they, Kathy? I now make them for "special occasions", my son could eat them ALL in one sitting!

I tried them with the cheese, a favorite and then with the cinnamon for a sweet treat. Both were a hit!

I'll have to try them those ways too. I put them up in the freezer, 2 in each baggie. I'm really looking forward to sandwiches in my future.
