Cream Cheese & Eggs = Low Carb Faux Bread

Minutes to Prepare: 20
Minutes to Cook: 30
Number of Servings: 6

3 eggs, separated
3 ounces cream cheese
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 pkt Stevia (optional)

1) Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2) Separate the eggs very carefully, there must be no yolk in the white.
3) In one bowl add Cream of Tartar to the egg whites and beat the whites on high speed until they are fluffy and form nice peaks.
4) In another bowl, mix together the egg yolks, cream cheese and the packet of Sweetener until smooth.
5) Very carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until mixed, but try and not break down the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
6) Spray two cookie sheets with Pam or other fat-free cooking spray.
7) With a large spoon, "scoop" the mixture into 6 even rounds on the sheets (roughly 3/4 inch thick and 4 to 5 inches across).
8) Bake on the middle rack. Here is when you have to watch them, because the cooking time the same on any two batches. It is somewhere around 1/2 hour, but it could be less or more. You just need to watch them until them become nice and golden brown.
9) Remove from the pans and cool on a rack or cutting board.

While warm they are crumbly and similar to cooked meringue - but don't let this fool you! Once completely cool, seal them in a Ziploc storage baggie or a Tupperware over night. They will totally change their consistency, to something much more like bread - a softer texture that is nice and chewy. If you do not like softer chewy bread, then eat them as they are, nice and crisp.
Since the sides that were facing the pan are perfectly flat, you use these to spread things on, or make sandwiches, or even as a burger bun! The choice is up to you, and you will be quite amazed at how much like a bun these really are!
