Ingredients

Cloud bread
  • 3 3 eggeggs
  • 4¼ oz. 120 g cream cheese
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tbsp ½ tbsp (4 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp (2.5 g) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp cream of tartar (optional)
Toppings
  • 8 tbsp 8 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 5 oz. 150 g bacon
  • 2 oz. 50 g lettuce
  • 1 1 tomato, thinly slicedtomatoes, thinly sliced
  • fresh basil (optional)

Instructions

Cloud bread

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C).
  2. Separate the eggs. Put the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
  3. Whip egg whites together with salt (and cream of tartar, if you are using any) until very stiff. Preferably using a hand held electric mixer. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.
  4. Add cream cheese to the egg yolks and mix well. To make the oopsie more bread-like, add in the optional psyllium seed husk and baking powder.
  5. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture — try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  6. Put 8 cloud bread pieces on a paper-lined baking tray.
  7. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes, until they turn golden.

Building the BLT

  1. Fry the bacon in a skillet on medium high heat until crispy.
  2. Place the cloud bread pieces top-side down.
  3. Spread 1–2 tablespoon of mayonnaise on each.
  4. Place lettuce, tomato, some finely chopped fresh basil and fried bacon in layers between the bread halves.
  5. Serve immediately.

Meal prep

Feel free to make large batches of Cloud bread ahead of time so you can make this delicious sandwich in no time. You can also prepare bacon in large batches and keep ready made in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to a week (as if bacon ever lasted that long, huh?). Perfect for a snack or to use as a salad topping, to your morning eggs or in a sandwich like this one.

How to store cloud bread

The bread keeps in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Put a layer of parchment paper between each bread so they don't stick together. That way you can easily grab as many as you need.

You can thaw frozen cloud bread at room temperature or in the fridge. They taste their very best if you toast them once thawed but you can also reheat them in the oven. Preheat to 300°F (150°C) and place them on the rack for about five minutes.

Tomato tip

Some of the best slicing heirloom tomatoes are Beefsteak, Brandywine, Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, and Black Krim. Watch for these at your local farmers' market for a BLT upgrade!

How about mayo?

We think homemade mayo beats store bought versions any day but sometimes you just don't have the time, energy or ingredients to make it yourself. The ones you buy in the supermarkets can vary in quality. Read the labels and try to steer clear of brands using sugar and soybean oil.

    I've been making about 2 batches of oopsie bread a week for my wife and I, two double recipes, 12 eggs each time. This week, in a hurry, I made the Pizza dough with egg and shredded cheese. Tried adding some psylium husk and baking powder and salt to see if texture would work. First try, worked out nice. Made BLT's, burgers, so far with it and, although not as light and fluffy as oopsie, not a bad substitute at all and so much quicker. Each bun, or slice worked out to the equivalent of one egg.

    another: https://snapguide.com/guides/make-lchf-oopsie-bread/ although I don't make those personalized paper pans, just ladle right onto baking sheet covered with parchment. Some times they run together but easy to split apart after cooking.

    I don't like cream cheese, or feta cheese, can I change for regular while cheese or swiss or pepper jack cheese
  10. Judith
    I have to be careful about making bread substitutes because bread is a "trigger" food for me. I've made oopsie bread twice in the past 5 months. It works great for a sandwich but I have trouble getting past the "egg smell" when I'm eating it. I sprinkle garlic powder and a little parmesan on before baking and it helps.

    When folding the egg whites into yolks mixture, do I have to mix it?
  12. Amanda
    Can I use carb quick instead of husk powder?
  13. Lynn Donahue
    I made the Oopsie bread on the weekend so this was a super fast, easy, delicious dinner.
  14. Pauline
    I turned this into a Chicken BLT wrap...i made a cream cheese pancake to wrap this in instead of the oopsie bread (similar ingredients, easier method), added some chicken and avocado and it was delicious! ?
  15. Light
    Just done oopsie bread myself and BLT. Delicious! I guess I can use this recipe to make pizza dough as well.

    i don't have access to fresh basil, what can i sub?
  20. Tony
    I've tried making these exactly per the recipe but mine turn out very flat (less than 1/16" thick). I was careful to whip the egg whites to firm peaks and turned the whites into the egg/cream cheese mixture carefully and slowly just until combined. Does anyone have any ideas why mine could be turning out so thin? Thanks!

    I am using the app carb manager to track my macros. When I copied the url for one of the recipes I’ve used, the %’s were way off. It was saying there was 1 gram of fat, no carbs, 7 calories, etc. what am I doing wrong? Anyone familiar with this?
  22. Kathy
    I just used my wish attachments for my hand mixer and whipped them for about 5 minutes. It definitely works

    I have noticed my Bread with Psyllium Husk, I can taste like sand in my Bread, What am I doing wrong? Is there any solution?

    Can you freeze oopsie bread
  31. Karen Baker
    Yes, I'm also wondering about how long the oopsie bread will last when put in the fridge?

    Hi which do people prefer the version with the ground psyllium husk or the one without? Can you taste it or is it added just for flavor?

    It was delicious! The way it turned out I mean - I had some troubles with the patties. The egg whites didn't want to turn solid, they were still a bit watery after long time mixing them, so I gave up and just continued with the next step. Then in the oven, 5 minutes in and the patties turned into one pig patty! :D I had to cut the patties out. But they tasted awesome anyway. The cream cheese was recognizable and they didn't taste like ordinary egg patties. Yum.
  34. Wendy
    I don't think you could taste the psyllium husk, it's added for better consistency, not to add flavor. I made this with psyllium and all and the only thing I tasted except the eggs was the cream cheese :)

    I wonder if you could use goat cheese instead of cream cheese to get away from the lactose?
  36. Dawn
    This is an awesome quick meal. The Oopsie bread really helps when you're missing the convenience of sandwiches. I made 4 batches of the bread and froze it. I cut little squares of parchment paper to place between each slice since it is delicate and it worked great.
  37. Rosie Duran
    I dont have alot of baking materials, what do i need to make this bread.
  38. Julie
    These were so good! Very excited about this recipe!

    Made the oopsie bread tonight and it turned out great! I used it for the BLT sandwich. Delicious!

    For the novice "baker" , these instructions could use more detail. Firstly, this is much like making meringues... to get nice stiff peaks in your egg whites, use only room temperature eggs, only add your salt once you have soft peaks in your egg whites. I use 2 baking sheets per batch of these, 4 oopsies per sheet, so they can Puff up nicely... I like my Oopsie sandwiches to look as big as possible. I add garlic salt in place of regular salt, along with some onion powder and dried oregano to eliminate some of the egg flavour... they come out perfectly every time.
  41. Sammie
    Oh, and as an add on... ensure there is noooo trace of yolk in your egg whites, or they will NOT foam into the stiff peaks required for this recipe.
  42. Michelle Rao
    I HAVE trouble getting photos of your creations....I like to put them on your recipes that I save on fbk in notes...can you help by making them jpg instead of web complete...or all files?
    thanks

    OMG. I've been making those keto pizzas never crispy, but now my go to is BLT. Just make the buns and add anything you want. AMAZING
  45. Leslie
    I am gob smacked! I added 1/2 tbsp of wasabi paste to Hellmann’s Mayo and this just made the sandwich pop. Fresh tomato from my garden that is candy sweet gave this just the right balance of sweet/salty/hot. After 20 months of low carb I started snacking on chips and other junk food as the summer family came to visit. A great mistake! I felt terrible, started to bloat, and could not get satisfied and not to forget to mention my weight increased by 5 lbs. I had worked hard to lose 50lbs and the weight gain was the killer. I am now back in ketosis and cravings for junkfood and and sweets are gone. I’ ve dodged a bullet. Thanks to diet doctor and these great recipes and meal plans I am back on track.
  46. Tammy
    Yum - love this!
  47. Lorraine
    This is by far the absolute best alternative for low carb bread. I’m so happy to have discovered this as I was getting fed up having to think of easy eats for lunch
