LCHF – Oopsies

Eating low carb means a change in the way you think about the structure of your meals.  But sometimes you need a bun or a bread so you can enjoy thinhs like burgers.   Dianne made a batch of Oopsies as a holder for some delish pulled pork and it worked really well.

This recipe is part of a collection of LCHF (Low Carb High Fat) recipes that I have been experimenting with.  These are not neccessarily original although may have been adapted and blended from recipes readily available online.  This collection is some that I have tried and enjoyed, collated here for my convenience and yours.  Where the recipe is a LCHF adaptation of another recipe that I have already shared, I shall link them…because I can.

I am not a Doctor, nor am I a nutritionist.  Fat:Carb:Protein content will depend on what variations you use.  Read more about LCHF eating here and always seek professional advice that is specific to your circumstances.

LCHF Oopsies
LCHF Oopsies
Makes 6-8 depending on size.
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cream cheese
  • a pinch of salt
  • ½ tablespoon almond meal or psyllium seed husks or coconut flour 
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  1. Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
  2. Whip egg whites together with salt until very stiff.
  3. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  4. Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well.
  5. Add the psyllium seed husk, coconut flour or almond meal and baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).
  6. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  7. Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a baking tray.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.
Variations
  • Cook in well greased egg rings or ramekins for shape
  • Cook in a greased pan or on BBQ over a low heat
  • Have an Oopsie as a sandwich or use it as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger.
  • Put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, for instance poppy, sesame or sunflower seeds.
  • Can be used for sweet or savoury toppings
