Low-Carb Cheesy Cloud Buns

I made this low-carb bread replacement (often called “Oopsie Bread”) out of eggs and cream cheese from a recipe I’ve seen all over the internet. It turned out great. It smells like cheesy-bread while it’s cooking, and it’s very light, and well, bread-like. Often hot dogs are too much about the bun, so this turned out to be a perfect alternative housing for the Sonoran hot dogs in my Taste of Tucson cookbook.

Low-Carb Cheesy Cloud Buns

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs separated
  • 3 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • Put the egg yolks and the cream cheese in one bowl and the egg whites and cream of tartar in another bowl. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, about 3-5 minutes. Then, beat the egg yolks and cream cheese together until they are smooth, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Fold the yolk mixture into the fluffy whites with a rubber spatula, gently so that the whites don't deflate. Spoon the batter into 6 equally sized heaps onto a baking sheet covered with a silpat or parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes, turning the baking sheet half way though.
