This recipe has been going around on Facebook and they looked delicious, so we decided to give them a try.  They are super simple and quick to make, and they don't taste bad.  Problem is that they really don't taste that good.  They are like eating air.  I could probably eat about ten and not even realize that I had eaten any.  The recipe on Facebook said that you could use them for hamburger buns, but they were much too delicate to hold up to a hamburger.  Here's the recipe, if you are interested.

6–8 depending on size.

3 eggs
100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cream cheese
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder or cream of tarter (can be excluded)

Separate the eggs, with the egg whites in one bowl and the egg yolks in another.
Whip the egg whites together with the salt until very stiff. You should be able to turn the bowl over without the egg whites moving.

Mix the egg yolks and the cream cheese well. If you choose, 1tsp of cream of tarter or baking powder (this makes the Oopsie more bread-like).

Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.

Put 6 large or 8 smaller oopsies on a baking tray.
Bake in the middle of the oven at 150° C (300° F) for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.

You can eat Oopsies as bread or use them 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.

  1. They taste just like German pancakes when topped with powdered sugar and lemon juice :)
