Foodie Friday Yeast Oopsie Rolls…

I am a little behind on posting this week. So, you get two recipes today! Whoop! Whoop!

First up Yeast Oopsie Rolls – I tweaked the original recipe from Your Lighter Side to be a little more flavorful, a little less calorie bound, and, frankly, a little more easy to make. I added Nutritional Yeast Flakes to get the bread like flavor I want since the texture is very egg whitey. If you have never used/had Nutritional Yeast Flakes, you can find information here on the benefits of supplementing them in your diet. I have read many articles on nutritional yeast but I like Kimberly Snyder’s sum up.

Yeast Oopsie Rolls

12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 5 large eggs – whites and yolks separated
  • 1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese (I used Daisy 4% Milk Fat Small Curd)
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Salt
  • 4 Tbs Nutritional Yeast Flakes (I used Now Foods – link included)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. In one mixing bowl, separate eggs for egg whites – add yolks to a medium size bowl
  3. Add Cottage Cheese, salt, and Nutritional Yeast Flakes to the egg yolks
  4. Mix thoroughly
  5. In bowl with egg whites add Cream of Tartar (optional)
  6. Whip/whisk until stiff peaks form (I have my grandmother’s old KitchenAid Stand Mixer and do not need the CoT to make perfectly whipped egg whites – so I do not use it)
  7. Once the egg whites are whisked firm (could turn the bowl upside down and they do not move), gently pour your egg yolk mixture in
  8. Gently fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites
  9. On 2 prepared baking sheets (prepared with either parchment paper or sprayed), place 6 mounds of Oopsie Roll dough onto each baking sheet
  10. Flatten mounds a little
  11. Place in oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown (I rotated the pans top to bottom – bottom to top after 12 minutes to ensure even browning)
  12. Check again at 22 minutes, when ready take out of the oven
  13. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling wrack
  14. These can be stored in a storage bag on the counter for a couple of days or in the fridge for a week
