Remember the Atkins revolution rolls? A popular low carb bread roll recipe in the old Atkins books. Now we have Oopsie Bread Rolls and tons of variations from savoury to sweet, making them even more popular! Less then 1g carbs per roll!
An online friend of mine was making the revolution rolls one day and stuffed up on the recipe by accidentally adding too much cream cheese resulting in Oopsie Rolls, luckily they were even better! So much so, they're currently a big hit amongst US low carbers. She has totally revolutionalised the revolution rolls and people are coming up with all sorts of recipes that they can use these rolls for, from savoury to sweet it is not funny!
Here's some pics she sent me of her oopsie bread, after I started harassing her about them:
This is her base recipe for the rolls:
Cleochatra's Best Ever Revol-Oopsie Rolls
3 large eggs
1 pkg Splenda
dash of salt
pinch of cream of tartar
3 ounces cream cheese (not Tbsp!) Do not soften!
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. [edit: 300 deg F or 150 deg C]
Separate the eggs and add Splenda, salt, and cream cheese to the yolks. Use a mixer to combine the ingredients together. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (if you're using the same mixer, mix the whites first and then the yolk mixture). Using a spatula, gradually fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. Flatten each mound slightly.
Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store them in a bread sack or a ziplock bag to keep them from drying out.

Cleo, sent me some info on how she stores her oopsie rolls:
More Variations:As for storage and freezing:
I store them in a zip lock bag with the bag open partially (this way they breathe and don't go over moist and keep them in the fridge. Then, when you want to use them, take them out and set them on the counter for 15-30 minutes or until they are room temperature. This makes them more 'dry' and less sticky.
As for freezing, I tried freezing and they do freeze. This time you want to close the ziplock when storing (I only store two per bag). To thaw, let them rest on the counter until room temperature in the bag with the bag open. When they're close to room temperature, set them outside of the bag so that they can 'dry' out slightly for use.
