I had never heard of Oopsies, but it is quite a sensation with the low-carb crowd. Seems someone who goes by the user name of Carbarella was trying to follow an Atkin's Revolution recipe. The recipe calls for fat, but by mistake she used cream cheese. She ended up making some very good low carb hamburger buns. Because of her mistake, she calls them Oopsies.
Your Lighter Side...: Gluten-free, low-carb buns (aka Oopsie rolls)

Some people are making Mayo Oopsies by stubstituting mayo for the cream cheese.
Mayo Oopsie Roll Recipe

I haven't tried either of these recipes, but today I made something called Lauren's Fluffy Biscuits, only I call them hamburger buns. The recipe makes 4, they are thick enough that you can use a serrated knife to cut them in half. This recipe calls for almond flour, baking soda or powder, (I used soda) and 4 egg whites. I used 2 whole eggs and was very pleased with the results.
Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes

All 3 of these recipes can be made on a cookie sheet, but many people make them in a muffin top pan. When I saw how many low carb recipes people are coming up with for this pan, of course I had to have one. My local Walmart didn't have any, but I found them at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I used it for the buns, and think it is a great invention, and I know it will be getting a good workout.

I made the mayo oopsies today, we had chicken salad on them. They tasted fair, but the recipe that uses almond flour has a lot more body, is more like bread, and I think it tastes much better.

I'm thinking about monkeying around with the almond recipe to see if I can substitute another ingredient for half of the almond flour since almonds and almond flour seems kind of expensive to me right now. Maybe I will try substituting mayo.

Well, I tweaked the almond flour recipe. I like it as well, if not better than the original, it has less almond flour, so less carbs.

Hamburger Buns

1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup pork rinds, chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease 4 wells of a muffin top pan.
In a small bowl, stir together almond flour, rinds and soda. Stir in the butter.
In a seperate small bowl, beat the mayo and eggs with a fork until well blended.
Stir the egg mixture into the almond mixture.
Divide equally between the 4 wells.
Bake 12 min, remove from pan at once, let cool.

Here is another hamburger bun recipe. I like it a lot better in a lot of ways than the one I posted earlier on this thread. They are pretty thin so you can't slice them, which means it will take 2 to make a bun.

Hamburger Buns

4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon each garlic powder, baking powder, onion powder
2 eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup Carbquik

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
With an electric mixer, beat together all ingredients except the Carbquik until smooth. Stir in the Carbquik.
Divide between the 6 cells of an oiled muffin top pan and bake 12 to 15 minutes. Remove buns from pan at once to cool.
