Meal Type: / Low Carb High Fat
Source: www.Food24.com

Ingredients:

3 eggs
100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cream cheese
a pinch of salt
½ tablespoon fiberhusk / psyllium seed husks (can be excluded)
½ teaspoon baking powder (can be excluded)

Instructions:

• Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
• Whip the egg whites together with the salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
• Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you choose, add the psyllium seed husk and baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).
• Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
• 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.
• You can eat Oopsies as bread or use them as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger. You can also put different kinds of seeds on them before baking them, for instance poppy, sesame or sunflower seeds. One big Oopsie can be used for a swiss roll: Add a generous layer of whipped cream and some berries. Enjoy.
