Cream Cheese & Eggs = Bread? 

Getting ready for a summer full of bbqs and burgers? Try this oopsie bread as your newest bun for burgers or serve with breakfast, or lather PB2 on top, regardless, its delicious, easy to make and only 60 calories per piece!

Preheat oven to 300' and follow instructions below. 


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 packet of splenda 
  • 1 dash of salt
  • 1/3 of the container of Philadelphia low fat cream cheese 
  • Cream of tartar (I have made them with and without, but with is better)


Separate the eggs and whip the egg whites. I of course don't have a food processor so had to this by hand. My arm workout for the day is now complete. I added a little bit of white vinegar to ensure the egg whites were stiff (cream of tartar works as well). 

 In separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese, splenda and eggs until smooth. Fold this mixture into the egg white mixture with a spatula. Don't over stir, just fold until its all blended. 

Spoon the mixture onto a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. and press down lightly to flatten. I sprinkled some salt on them at this point. You could also use cinnamon or some smoked paprika depending on your desired end result. 

I checked on them after 20 minutes and this is what they looked like. I decided browner was better so put back in for another 10 minutes. 

End result, they are soft and chewy and really good. I am taking to my moms tonight to serve with her lasagna dinner she is cooking.

This is totally yummy. A word or 2 of caution - make sure you whip the whites enough to peak or the mixture won't set up correctly, and don't use a tin foil liner, too sticky!

Thanks Sue! I didn't whip the egg whites enough the first time and they didn't turn out. I have also heard that using cream of tartar instead of vinegar makes the bread "lighter".

I've made these 3 times, and cream of tartar to make the egg whites super stiff and drizzling the cream cheese/yolk over the whites and folding seems to be my best trick. Just had burgers last night, I just love oopsie bread! :) I have to eat my burgers quick b/c it gets a little soggy, but i love this oopsie bread!

Thanks for the tips. Agree that you have to eat quicker than a regular bun but eating fast has never been a problem with me.

How much cream of tartar should be used?

Erinn Pinky said...

A pinch or 1/8 of a teaspoon of cream of tartar should be used.
