Who Wants A Burger?
Not really even a question – everyone does!
As I’ve been making so many over the years, I keep looking for unique ways to enjoy one – and this time I “Oopsied!”
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 the “In-n-Out” burger you see above, as well as incredibly inventive burgers like this one, with the cheese on the outside!

Some of you like to experiment with burgers just like I do – remember when I had a burger with a ramen noodle bun?
It was delicious and you can see where I got it by clicking on my story here:

What I love about your posts and cooking is that your joy of food and the cooking shines through… I eat a burger very rarely but love seeing yours, John… 😀
Thank you Carol, your comment means a lot to me…
All true, John and you are welcome 🙂
I had never heard of ‘Oopsie Bread’, John. But you did a great job, and I would certainly eat that burger!
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks for the comment Pete!
I can imagine, John, that this did taste very good. Cheese, egg, and hamburger go together very well.
Yes it sure did! thanks for commenting!
