6 servingservings
  • 3 3 eggeggs
  • 4¼ oz. 120 g cream cheese
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tablespoon ½ tablespoon ground psyllium husk powder
  • ½ teaspoon ½ teaspoon baking powder


Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
  2. Whip egg whites together with 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. If you want, add the psyllium seed husk and baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.
  5. Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a paper-lined baking tray.
  6. Bake in the middle of the oven at 300° F (150° C) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.


You can have an Oopsie as a sandwich or use it as a bun for a hotdog or hamburger. 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 to make a swiss roll: Add a generous layer of whipped cream and some berries. Enjoy.

    I have a couple questions about this bread.
    1. If I use 2 servings measurements and get 4 breads, is 2 breads a single serving?
    2. When putting all ingredients into myfitnesspal, 2 breads come out to 3g carbs, yet the nutrition panel says 0g carbs. Why the difference?

    It's a great recipe, the breads are a very suitable replacement in my opinion.

    Just made my first batch of oopsie bread. I haven't tried it yet but they look awesome! Can anyone tell me how they should be stored? Fridge, freezer???

    I think she was looking at the difficulty level, which is medium. Somebody make sure this woman knows these are the lowest of low carb breads!!! Lol.

    Leann, I have been storing these in a container in the fridge so far for up to 4 days (they don't last much longer as I love them) and they are still perfect. They get a little bit moist and sticky but I pop them into the toaster for a short time to warm and crisp up. Perfect with crispy bacon for breakfast. I am not sure about serving size but I have two for brekkie daily. I make six in a batch, secret is to not mix the egg white and yolk/cheese mixtures too much - a bit of white foam here and there is fine. It is a very forgiving recipe. I also add about a tbsp. of psyllium husk powder and half tsp baking powder to the egg yoke mixture right before folding this into the whites. Don't put this stuff in too early or the egg mix will go solid !

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally I can make my low carb diet a little more versatile! Can I share this recipe on my blog, giving you the credit, of course?

    There are virtually no carbs in these buns. The 2 main ingredients are egg and cream cheese and the small amount of psyllium husk powder also comes out to zero carbs because of the high fibre content. Remember to subtract the carbs listed from the fibre to get the true 'net' carbs--enjoy!

    Most people that I've heard mention the eggy-ness were surprised to see how different they tasted once they put their sandwich fillings in! It covers up the taste. I love these as a BLT with cheese and mayo--yum!
  8. Theresa
    Try using cream of tartar in the egg whites, Amy. It keeps the buns from deflating once out of the oven. An 1/8 of a tsp. will do the trick and whip the egg whites till 'very' stiff--all the best. :)
  9. Theresa
    Use cream of tartar instead of the baking powder and whip egg whites till very stiff. Be very gentle when folding them into other ingredients..As for the eggy taste, this is diminished once your fillings are in or add spices and flaked onion, etc. Really makes a difference.

    Cant seem to get these right! Have been experimenting, and have got the mixture turning out great, they puff up wonderfully in the oven... but as soon as i pull them out they collapse and just look like little flat omelettes! Definately dont look like the ones in the picture :( they taste ok though, just eggy more than bread-like

    Actually, I shouldn't have said "instead of baking powder", but in addition to it. I add 1/8 tsp. cream of tartar to the egg whites, then proceed as normal with the recipe..

    Can I use almond flour or coconut flour?

    Is there a replacement for Pissilium Husk?

    I made a double batch of these and I put 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar in the whites as I mixed them and I added 2 Tablespoons of Coconut flour. I whipped the egg whites very stiff and whisked all other ingredients in another bowl then I scraped them on top of the very stiff whites and folded it all together. It really make puffy bread!

    How come oopsie bread has so much chlolesterol in it ? I have high cholesterol and dont need to eat something thats has it. T. Thanks!
  15. Timea
    Made these today....actually they are right now in the oven.....well I've already tried another oopsie recipe and in comparison the other one looks better....BUT I had 3 children running around in the kitchen and nagging me, so I might not have been gentle enough with my folding the whites in and the psyllium husk made the yolks a bit hardish....I guess I waited too much with it....and 1/2 ts salt is a bit too much for me....I'm going to try it again....child free and with less salt :D
  16. Timea
    you just leave it out...there are recipes floating around the net without....

    For a mock rye bread add caraway seeds into batter and bake as suggested. I also turn them over after baking time and leave in my hot but turned off oven. Check after 10 min. may go longer to suit your doneness..
  18. Bonnie Fuhr
    If you are using psyllium husk powder, I suggest putting it in small strainer and shaking in small amounts as you beat the yolks, the first time I made them they went lumpy, but now they are perfect!!
  19. Patricia
    I made my first batch today. They don't look exactly like the picture but that doesn't matter since they taste good. I will try adding cream of tartar in the next batch, as suggested.
