Normally, you’d hear that word uttered when something goes very, very wrong when cooking, but in this case, it was my goal!
It all began when my wife Alex sent me this recipe for “Oopsie Bread” – a very healthy Keto recipe for a flourless bread…which I will say looked incredible – bravo to Wholesome Yum for this….so I thought to myself: why don’t I make it into a hamburger bun?
Let’s Get Baking!
I gathered the very few ingredients needed for the “Oopsie” bread – minus the cream of tartare which I didn’t have – and followed this very easy and fun recipe!
First, I separated my egg whites and yolk…I crack the egg and then let the whites slip between my fingers into a bowl…easy!
Next, I blended my egg whites into a frothy foam….well, probably no where near as frothy as they’d like, but once that was done I put my Mascarpone cheese into a bowl with the gg yolks and some salt and blended that as well:
And what does it sound like when you blend it?
Well, I’ve got a short and sweet answer here!
Next up, you combine the white frothy egg whites and the yolk/cheese mix to create your batter:
At this point, the recipe calls for you to turn the mixture into discs that you bake on parchment paper at 300 degree for a half hour….but that’s not how it turned out for me:
I immediately realized my batter was far too thin to shape it, so I put a thin layer in a pan as you can see and baked it – and guess what? It turned out perfectly for me to cut these two “buns” out – although mine were square!
Time To Cook Up Our Burger!
With my square “oopsie bun” ready to go, it was time to cook the burger!
I use 80/20 ground beef, but you can do 90/10 if you want less fat…I add salt and pepper, and sometimes I use Worcestershire as well, but with the egg bun I decided not to…
I formed my patty and cooked it for about 4 minutes on each side before adding slices of my favorite cheese – that’s right, it’s Tillamook’s Sharp Cheddar!
Now, I have a short video of the burger cooking in the pan, because it always sounds so enticing!
I let the cheese melt a bit more than this picture shows, then I dressed my “oopsie” bun with my favorites: dill pickle chips, a slice of tomato and of course, mayonnaise!
So there you have it: all of the elements are in place for my “oopsie burger” – so let’s reveal it now!
OK, I admit that an “oopsie burger” looks a bit different but guess what?
It tasted delicious!
The creamy marscapone flavor inside this eggy bun made the “oopsie bun” a hit – and of course, any burger with mayo, pickle and tomato under a Tillamook hood is a winner!
I got us started off with a look at some of my favorite burgers of all time – like thw “In-n-Out” burger you see above, as well as incredibly inventive burgers like the “The Chompstack” shown here:

You don’t have to stack a burger a mile high to get something unique – how about this “cheese-dipped” burger?
