Really, though. It sounds like a small, toasted pizza. Cheese with something that has some acidity to it. It sounds like it could be pretty good! I wonder what adding a little chopped artichoke heart to it might taste like?

Mine too I mean, it is pretty weird....it even surprises me but I just plain don't like it.

I like tomato BISQUE-- nice and thick and chunky...or tomato parmesan...but plain tomato out of a can -or anywhere I guess- is just not for me-- all thin and yucky...nope!

haystar and cutie, I hate tomato soup, too, but like tomatoes and ketchup and tomato sauce, etc...just can't stand plain ole yukky tomato soup!

Well, cleochatra...the rev rolls were delicious with a slice of bacon on each, along with a slice of tomato, LF Feta and a bit of Mexican cheese mix. I put them into the toaster oven and broiled for about 2 minutes...DH says do more and I agree.

I want to try adding 2 or 3 tbsp of golden flaxseed meal and a dab of melted butter to the yolk part before folding it into the whites...what do you think? I'm thinking that would take these off the list of induction foods though?

I know, I know...if it works, leave it alone!

That sounds good. I used the original recipe, but in the last few minutes of baking, sprinkled just a tiny bit of grated cheddar on top of each one. Yum.

I ate a Wendy's baconator on these Friday night (got the idea from Cleo). Yesterday for lunch, I had a Junior Whopper from Burger King on it. I took my rolls with me when DH said we were going to go through the drive-thru and get a quick burger to eat before hitting Home Depot. When I pulled the Revoloopsie rolls out of my purse, he looked at me like I was from outer space. lol

Have any of you tried tomato soup with fresh homemade blue cheese dressing swirled into it? It is a whole 'nother creature entirely. After that I can't eat plain tomato soup any more, It was too awesome.

Ketchup on grilled cheese, scrambled eggs, on almost everything. I love the stuff so much that as a lifelong republican, I voted for John Kerry because I didn't want his wife to stop making low carb ketchup.

I'm making a double batch this afternoon..OKAY..those with muffin top pans..you have to spray the pans like crazy with Pam..(voice of experience)..

I love this tomato soup recipe:

1 can Hunt's tomato sauce
1/2 can of water
2 tsp. of Splenda

Heat this in a small saucepan until combined and hot..Turn off stove then add
cream to taste..or half/half..

nommie..Hunt's has the lowest carb count.

Yes, yes, yes! I am making a double bacth of savory rolls today on my muffin top pan. I sprayed it pretty well when I made my first batch but still had a little "stickage" LOL! This time I will double the spray. I love that they come out perfectly round and all the same size but then I am a little crazy like that. :blush:

If you don't have a muffin top pan use Reynolds non-stick aluminum foil on your baking sheet.

Now why didn't I read this before I just put another batch in the oven? I used parchment paper yesterday, and they stuck a bit, so today I sprayed the parchment, but I the nonstick foil. It's pricy, so I only use it for things that are likely to stick. I'll remember next time!

I had a burger on one today for lunch, and it was surprisingly bread-like. It provides a great vehicle to transport the burger and it's toppings to your mouth! I've tried many bread substitutes using LC flour replacements, and they all have a certain funky taste. I'm just amazed that something that uses readily available ingredients can work so well as a roll sub, (or even a sub roll!)

I made a batch of these a couple of hours ago. Then I put them to the ultimate test. The leftover meatloaf sandwich. Oh yeah, they passed with flying colors!!

Also held up to:
Scrambled egg sandwich
Hot Dog with Sauerkraut

Sometimes you just want to stuff your food between two slices of bread before you eat it. A hot dog cut up on a plate just isn't a hot dog!

Yuck!! it smells and taste like egg, I can't trick myself into thinking it's bread lol I think I made them right? I couldn't get them to set individually so I made it like a cake, and it has the consistency of sponge cake, the edges where very flaky/dusty almost bread like, but even then i could tell the difference and didn't like what i tasted I guess If my idea of bread was something rubbery, spongy and very eggy smelling, they would be perfect it certainly looked like bread but didn't taste like bread, maybe if i could have gotten them to set individually they might have tasted better, less sponge cake like and less eggy smelling/tasting

Wax paper & parchment paper are two different things. You can bake w/parchment paper.

You can cook with wax paper as long as the paper isn't exposed. For instance, many bakers grease their pans and then cut a piece of wax paper to line the bottom of the pan with. They pour the batter over it and then bake the cake. This makes the cake easier to get out of the pan. For this use, the paper is safe in the oven because it is covered by the batter.

When the wax paper is exposed, it dries out and then burns.

Parchment paper will also burn in the oven if the piece is to big for the pan and hangs over the edges. (Ask me how I know this)

Probably, if you cut your wax paper into small round pieces just slightly bigger than your rolls, you could use the wax paper to bake them on, but it would be a lot of work!!!!

Hope that helps.

Haystar - The foil is called Reynolds Release. I used it to make mine and they did not stick at all.
