Another great recipe from ye old low carb mailing list.
Dinner or sandwich Rolls (substitute for sandwich buns)
makes 6 rolls.
3 large eggs (1.8 )
1 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened (1.5)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder (0.7)*
1 pinch salt (0)
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar (0.3)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with either wax paper or cooking parchment paper. If using wax paper, butter or oil it. Set aside
Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. To the egg yolks add the cream cheese and onion powder. Mix well and set aside.
To the egg whites, add the cream of tartar and salt. Beat the egg whites until it forms very stiff peaks.
Fold the egg yolks into the egg whites. Do not overmix because the egg whites will provide the “leavening” for the rolls.
Using two tablespoons, drop the the mixture into 6 equal mounds onto your prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes in the middle rack of your oven. Cool completely. Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
*May replace the onion powder with 1 packet of Splenda. The carb count remains roughly the same per roll.
Per 1 serving( 1 roll)
Total carbs: 0.8 grams
Fiber: 0 grams
Net Carbs: 0.8grams
Cheese allowance: .25 oz
Note: The original recipe calls for 1 packet of Splenda. This is completely unnecessary. The addition of 1/2 teaspoon onion powder gives the Rolls more flavor (no onion taste) than the Splenda does. You can also add 1 tablespoon of a fiber supplement to the egg yolks if desired.
Adjust your carb count if you do.
