Frolls - Fake Rolls

I found this recipe on Facebook. You can also find them online as oopsie rolls. This recipe a good replacement for buns or other baked goods when you're cutting out starch and sugar. This is good for all phases of the South Beach Diet. I wanted to use the recipe to try and make something sweet so I changed it up a bit. I also used 2/3 of the original recipe because I only had 2oz of cream cheese left. I put some Cool Whip on them and they were good. Next time I'll make them savoury and use them as burger buns.

6 servings

2oz cream cheese
2 eggs divided
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 packets of Splenda
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch chili powder
pinch salt

Seperate the eggs into 2 seperate bowls. Make sure the bowl with the whites is either metal, glass or ceramic and free of any oils. Let both sit for about 20 minutes to come to room temperature.

To the yolks, add all other ingredients except cream of tartar. Beat with a fork and set aside.

With an electric mixer, whip the egg whites with cream of tartar for several minutes until stiff meringue peaks form. This will take awhile, don't give up, just keep beating.

With the same mixer, give the egg yolk mixture a beat until very well combined. Don't worry about cream cheese lumps.

Put one spatula full of beaten egg whites into yolks and gently fold until combined. Add yolk mixture to whites and fold gently with a spatula just until combined.

Place 6 dollops of the mix onto a parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 30 minutes. They should still be a bit soft. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Tip: You could serve these warm with butter and jam (sugar free or regular depending) for breakfast. If you're making savoury Frolls, try using different cheeses and spices. How about ham and cheddar? Yum! Sundried tomato? You could spread on some cream cheese. Use these as buns for burgers or sandwiches.

Added Note - February 23rd, 2011: I just found out these are also called Atkins Revolution Rolls. Here's a video on YouTube of a guy making them. His look nice and puffy. I think I'll make it for breakfast tomorrow with ham and cheddar (no splenda).
