Ok, who's going to make this first?  I'll try to do it tomorrow.  Isn't it amazing what imagination can do? yeah   Thanks, Chris.

OK I tried it. Not exactly bread but close ... more like a very light & airy muffin.

BTW, don't be afraid of over-baking -- I found that when they looked right in the oven, they were actually kind of undercooked in the middle (a little custardy).

I left out the garlic powder just to see if they would be good for breakfast ... I think they would be with some fruit.

According to another poster further down the link, each muffin/bun is about .74 carbs so there's a lot of possibilities here.

(2 muffin/buns = a sandwich?) :)

(Hmmm ... pizza ... make one big muffin, spread it thin on a pan ... who knows?) :)

P.S. Yes Lanie, 'imagination' -- what a great word!

yeah   :-) tongue smurf cool wink    I made them too!  And that's funny, Chris, because I didn't put garlic powder in there either.  Also, I made 14 and they were fairly large (round).  I baked them on parchment on a baking sheet and it was way longer than 25/30 minutes.  Right away, people in my house said:  What if.....    What if we mixed cheese with the "batter".  Well, maybe the parmesan cheese that comes already grated in the green container.  I think other additions might be too heavy for the batter because after all it's basically eggs.  But this is really a meringue with yolks and without the sugar, so it's very light and airy but with little taste of its own which is why the cheddar on top is very good.  We all agreed next time to put more cheddar on.  For me I was especially happy because it will indeed be a "bread" or a "roll" with a meal and can be used as a sandwich bread, too.  I easily sliced through it horizontally.  I realized tonight that what I miss most while eating dinner is having that piece of bread in one hand. So, thanks, Chris, this is a great addition to what we can eat without guilt and without driving the blood sugar up.   smilewinkgrin  
 
Another thought:  add some powdered Equal or Splenda (not the half sugar kind - just the artificial sweetener) and make smaller rounds.  They would be cream puffs.  You could fill them with whipped cream cheese.

Yes! That's what it reminded me of. I'm not much of a formal cook (more of a Mad Scientist in the kitchen -- wonder what this THIS would taste like with THAT!) but I know I've had this before. Kind of like Yorkshire pudding?

Even though I've adjusted to this new way of eating, there are still times when I miss certain textures -- especially when it comes time to sop up the gravy or egg yolks :)

It's funny - I spent most of my time growing up being a skinny, pain-in-the-*** picky eater. Then I grew up, gave in to social pressures, got fat and diabetic.

As it turns out, I was right in the first place ;-)
