Best Low Carb Burger Buns!

Hands down, these are the best hamburger buns I’ve tasted! They also would be fantastic for any other bread purpose. I toasted one and smeared on peanut butter. I toasted another and topped it with butter, equal, and cinnamon. It’s excellent!!

I got the recipe here at low carb friends, an older post back from 2003.

I ordered the Atkins mix and a muffin pan for about $10 each on Amazon. This is the link for the muffin pan I bought: OvenStuff Non-Stick 6-Cup Muffin Caps Pan And this was the Atkins mix I bought: Atkins All Purpose Bake Mix, 2-Pound Bag I ordered them on Thursday and they came Saturday! That was super fast and I couldn’t wait to try.

Here are the ingredients:
1 8oz Pkg cream cheese
2 T olive oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup Atkins Bake Mix
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 tbsp lemon juice

1) first thing is to put the lemon juice in the heavy cream to ‘sour’ as you get the other things ready

2) soften the cream cheese in the microwave about 30 seconds

3) mix all the ingredients with a blender until smooth

4) spoon in 2 Tablespoons mix for each muffin onto pan sprayed with Pam

5) bake at 350 for 12-15 mins

These were perfect!

And as I said, the possibilities are endless. ¬†Add or top with sweetners like butter, cinnamon, and equal. Or add some garlic powder and top with butter and cheese. Or make a sandwich! It’s bread without the carbs.

Using a measured 2T per muffin, I made 18 muffins with one mix. That’s less than 1 carb per muffin and it was the perfect size to hold a hamburger as well as tasting exactly like a bun.

One of these days I’m going to try to make my own almond flour mix… but for now, this is awesome!

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~

Low Carb Hamburger Bun / Bread

Since hamburgers are allowed on the low carb lifestyle — but the bun is not — I have been looking for a way to eat the burger besides with a knife and fork. I tried the Oopsie/Revolution bread and wasn’t able to get it right. I found the Atkins mix kind and ordered the Atkins mix and a muffin pan, but it’s not here yet. So, yesterday I got the bright idea to try the egg/cheese pizza crust as my hamburger bun. It was delicious! And super easy. I think it might be my new lunchtime favorite.

1) Stir one egg and add in a handful of cheese. So far I’ve used cheddar, mozzarella, and a bagged mix. All worked. I added sea salt, garlic powder, and ground pepper as well.

This is what it looked like.

2) I divided it into two lumps on my cast iron skillet. The skillet didn’t even need greasing, because it’s already well oiled.

I cooked them while my hamburger cooked. I love low carb because I was free to add mayo and I added a slice of American cheese.

Doesn’t this look yummy?!
It was! It is kind of like a pancake consistency, but it holds all of it together so I can eat it in my hands. It’s quite filling.

I was so excited about them that I made them for dinner last night too. Same amount made into smaller rolls for the family. I added a bit of cheese and more garlic.

SO, so easy!!!

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~

Mock Danish

My new favorite low carb breakfast each morning is “mock danish.” I read about it in some forum and tried it out. Linda has it on her site and just now I did a search and see someone even did a youtube video for it.

Here’s my recipe ~ I make it and eat it in one microwaveable bowl:

1) gather eggs, sweetener substitute, cinnamon, butter, and cream cheese.

2) melt 1 tsp butter and 1 oz cream cheese in a bowl for about 20 seconds.

3) stir in 2 eggs, some cinnamon, and 1 pack equal.

4) microwave for 30 seconds, repeating till done (until the center isn’t jiggly)

5) I top with another tsp of butter, a dash of cinnamon, and a spoon of whipped cream.

It may look funny, but it’s quite yummy!

I count it as 5 carbs. 1 for the cream cheese, 2 for the cinnamon, and 2 for the whipped cream.

It is very filling and satisfying! And very quick and easy as well.

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~
