Low-Carb ‘Oopsie’ Mania Is Running Wild!

Filed under: Low-carb Recipes — @ March 20, 2008

Nope, this ain’t no Egg McMuffin. It’s an Oopsie–seriously!

Some of the best food creations to come out of my kitchen have happened almost by accident. Just when you think you’ve totally messed up the perfect recipe and you’re kicking yourself for not following it by the letter, along comes a pleasant surprise to totally blow you away. Of course, you really MEANT to do that, right? *wink wink*

Remember this low-carb “magic shell” recipe that sorta fell in my lap last Fall. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it because all I was trying to do was come up with a nice chocolate syrup sauce for my low-carb ice cream. But lo and behold, looky what happened when I poured it on top of my ice cream–a sweet, delicious hardened topping just like that magic shell stuff. OH MY GOSH!!! What an amazing find that was–despite it being an “oops.”

Well, today I have another “oops” recipe for you from a wonderful low-carb blogger I told you about on Monday (see #12 under this post) named Cleochatra who runs the fantabulous blog called “The Lighter Side Of Low-Carb.” If you haven’t already bookmarked this blog, then DO IT NOW! She is one incredibly funny and entertaining writer and a pretty awesome low-carb cook, too, if you like recipes (and who doesn’t?!).

But even the best sometimes experience the trials and tribulations that hit our inner Paula Deen where we’re a whole lot close to Paula Abdul instead! Ah, but never fear because fate always has a way of turning that lemon into lemonade and the birth of a new and exciting recipe awaits. Or, something like that.

In the case of Cleochatra, that lemon would be the appropriately named “Oopsie Rolls.” It’s obvious why she named them this because they were supposed to be one thing and ended up another. But the flexibility of these oh-so-yummy low-carb bread roll thingys is quite evident in a series of recipes I’ll share in just a moment. First, let me show you this neat little recipe compliments of Cleochatra.


3 large eggs
1 packet of Splenda
A dash of salt
A pinch of cream of tartar
3 ounces cream cheese (not Tbsp!) Do not soften!
