No-Carb “Bread”

So “bread” is going out on a limb for these guys, but they *are* pretty good.  As someone who craves bread, I don’t think that they make a great substitute, but they were good as replacement flatbread for dipping, etc., and we also thought that a very flavorful burger would do well with them.  I think if you added some herbs or a little cheese, they make good snacks – they’re pretty tasty on their own.  They also could make a decent crepe substitute with some berries, etc.  This recipe is all over the interwebs, but I believe I got them from somewhere on All Recipes.

3 eggs
1/2 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 300° F.
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. Add the baking powder   Gently fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mix – try to keep the air in the egg whites.

Put 6 large ladlefuls on the baking sheet.  Bake in the middle of the oven at  300° F for about 25 minutes – until they turn golden.
