Low Carb Bread

I’ve had a great summer so far. I’ve gotten to do a lot of fun stuff like the Perot Museum, George W Bush library, Arboretum, Katy Trail, Rangers Baseball Games, Swimming, Playing with the CUTEST two kids ever, and much more. All this activity has helped me to decide it’s time to go on a low carb diet.  I say I’m going to try to lose weight every week, but today I actually bough the food to do it.  I’m not really a bread person, but when I CAN’T have some type of food, that’s when I NEED it.  I found this recipe on facebook, so I don’t really know who to credit.

No carb bread
6–8 depending on size.

Ingredients

3 eggs
100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cream cheese
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder or cream of tarter (can be excluded)

Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.

Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you choose, 1tsp of cream of tarter or baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).20130825-211113.jpg

Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.20130825-211130.jpg

Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a baking tray.
Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.

  3. What did i do wrong, my is crumbling it would near hold up to cutting it in half.

    1. I started adding a table spoon of the baking powder and that helped. Are you whipping the eggs enough?
