Oopsies straight out of the oven
So, you're missing bread.  It's understandable.  If you've been browsing low carb forums and blogs you're almost bound to have heard of the oopsie.  You can do many things with oopsies, use them as a pizza base, as a hamburger bun, you can even use them as part of a dessert by making one large one and using it as a base for a swiss roll.  Really, they are THAT versatile. 

Whilst some may argue that the oopsie roll is the answer to all, that it is not.  However, it does make eating low carb easier.

The following is the oopsie recipe that I found on the Diet Doctor's Website (it's found closer towards the bottom of the page).  The only change that I made to it was add Cream of Tartar, an ingredient that you can't find here in Sweden, but helps when you're whipping egg whites.  I've seen it in other oopsie recipes so decided to add it to mine.  The results were great.  I used it instead of an english muffin to my eggs flourentine today.  They're fairly easy to make and are very low carb.  I think the next time I make them, they'll be in swiss roll form.  Perhaps this evening haha!  I'll put a little stevia in it and some shredded coconut, then make some coconut whipped cream and add in some raspberries...yep, I may just have to make that tonight!

6-8 depending on size

3 eggs
100g cream cheese
a pinch of salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tbsp fiberhusk/psyllium husk (can be excluded)
1/2 tsp baking powder (can be excluded)

1.  Separate the eggs, egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another.
2.  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.
3.  Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well.  Add fiber husk and baking powder if you want (will make the oopsie more like bread).
4.  Very gently put the egg whites into the yolk mix - try to keep the air in the egg whites. 
5.  Put 6 large or 8 smalle oopsies on a baking try.
6.  Bake in the middle of the oven at 150 C (300F) for about 25 minutes - until they turn golden.
Can be eaten as bread or used as a hotdog- or hamburger bun.  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.
