Oopsie Bread – Nearly NO Carb and Gluten Free!

Back in the day when I was a grizzled old vet of the low carb lifestyle…I would slice my hamburger patty horizontally and then put all the stuff inside my two “buns” that I had crafted from my patty. It was a little mind trick thing that made me miss eating a burger with a bun just a little less. But it just wasn’t the same. So…you can imagine how my head spun around when Lana Thompson Brown sent me a recipe for Oopsie Bread! I looked over the recipe and wondered how in the world does 3 eggs, 3 ounces of cream cheese and an 1/8th of a teaspoon of Cream of Tarter make ANYTHING…let alone some palatable bread.

Of course…I had to give it a whirl!! And you know what??? IT IS BETTER THAN FREAKING AWESOME!!!  I mean…LOOK AT THIS BURGER TOPPED WITH OOPSIE BREAD!!! And the best part???? Not only does it taste good….IT HAS NEXT TO NO CARBS!!!

So…here’s what ya do. Separate 3 eggs. Beat the egg whites with 1/8 teaspoon of cream of tarter until stiff peaks form.

Then you beat the COLD cream cheese into the egg yolks until somewhat smooth. As you can see…mine is a tad lumpy.

Then GENTLY fold the egg whites into the egg yolk/cream cheese mixture. GENTLY!!!

Now…you can either spoon mounds of the mixture onto a cookie sheet that has been lined with parchment or you can put the mixture in a zip lock bag and cut a corner off and pipe it on to the cookie sheet.

Leave a little space between them.

Pop them into a 350 oven for about 30 minutes or until they are brown.

And look at the other side of one…it even LOOKS like toasted bread!

AND WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS??? I AM EATING A BURGER!!! WITH BREAD!!! AND THE ENTIRE THING HAS LESS THAN 2 CARBS!! Had I done without the slice of onion…it would be less than 1 carb! And yeah…my burger is a little on the pink side…I WOULDN’T WAIT TO LET IT COOK SOME MORE!! I WAS HUNGRY!



3 eggs (.94 carbs or .38 carbs each)

3 ounces cream cheese, cold (1.5 carbs or .75 carbs per ounce)

1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tarter ( .23 carbs or 1.84 carbs per teaspoon)

Preheat oven to 350

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.

Separate eggs.

Beat egg whites and Cream of Tarter until stiff peaks form.

Beat egg yolks and cold cream cheese until semi-smooth.

Gently fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture.

Mound or pipe mixture onto cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until brown.

Total Servings 8 (1.67 carbs)

Carbs per serving .21

Now…you low carbers who have been jonesing for a REAL burger…let your hair down. DIG IN! It kinda reminds me of the burgers I had as a kid…you know…the kind your Momma made on plain white bread???

  • Ok, so I’m not low carbing bc I just don’t like meat enough for that life. But I want to try this “bread”!!!

    • This stuff was great. THE MOST EXCITING thing I have come across for low carb dieting. This changes EVERYTHING for me!!! You can use them as flour tortillas so you can have a taco when everyone else is. Or you can have a BLT when everyone else is. Or you can have a breakfast burrito when everyone else is!!!

  • Can Oopsie bread be made up, cooked and then frozen for future use?

    • I don’t know. A friend gave me the recipe. Tell you what…I will make up a batch…freeze it for a few days and report back to you.

  • I don’t think your math is accurate.
    - if an egg is .38 carbs, then 3 eggs = 1.14 carbs, not 0.94
    - if cream cheese is .75 carbs/oz, then 3 oz = 2.25 carbs, not 1.5

    Total carbs = 3.62 (including cream of tartar)
    If total servings = 8, then carbs/serving = 0.45

    • Ya know…I found that I could find different carb counts for eggs, cream cheese and cream of tartar all over the internet and in the book I was using. They were all different!

  • Where do I find this Cream of Tartar? And what exactly is it??

    • Cream of Tartar can be found in the spice aisle…as to what it is…Um…I really don’t know!!! But I use it in several recipes and meringues and such…

  • I’ve made two batches so far and both come out thing and flat. I’ve followed your directions to the T and the “batter” is just goopy. HELP! :(

    • Did the bread turn out goopy also??? Let me make another batch…haven’t made any in a while…refresh my memory and see if I can help yith your goopy batter…

  • I love this bread, but can i leave it out or does it need to be kept cool.

    • I have left it out…but it doesn’t last long when I am low carbing because it is like BREAD!!!

  • I can’t wait to try this wonderful looking bread! (Oopsie) I’ll let you know how it turned out!
