If you were waiting in bed for the kids (or your spouse) (or Johnny Depp speaking with his pirate accent) to deliver a delicious (read: edible) tray of food for Mother’s Day, you might have been fantasizing about this dish while politely sipping on a homemade, improvised protein shake (mmm! capers and chocolate! Whodathunk).It doesn’t get much easier than this, so cook, enjoy, and leave major hints that this is on your must-have list. On a tray, in your bra, with green eggs and ham… I draw the line at stapling this recipe to your kids’ or husband’s underwear, especially while they’re wearing them.
Notes (there won’t be a test, save for a taste test): this recipe is not gluten free. I use 4 carb-per slice bread Carb Helper Bread so adjust for your brand if you use something else. I also used Ideal No Calorie Sweetener, which accounts for 1.3 net carbs per Tbsp, but use what you have available that you can’t live without. Be sure to adjust for your sweetener.
Edited to add: If you don’t have coconut milk, you can use heavy white cream, and blueberries could be swapped out for 4 Tbsp (more or less) of unsweetened fruit jam. I have not made this with my oopsie rolls, so I’m not sure how they’d turn out.
OK. I think that’s it. Now on to the chow…
Get stuffed French toast
8 slices low carb bread with the edges removed
2 extra large eggs
4 Tbsp coconut milk
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup blueberries
1-2 Tbsp sugar equivalent (to taste)
2 Tbp butter
In pan over medium heat, melt butter.
In a container large enough to accommodate a bread slice (for dredging), combine coconut milk and eggs. Stir with a fork. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, blueberries and sweetener. Set aside.
Remove crusts from low carb bread (save for breadcrumbs for other dishes). In the center of a slice of bread, distribute cream cheese/fruit mixture. Top with bread and gently press edges together to form a closed pocket.
Dredge in egg/milk mixture. Cook on stove 2-4 minutes per side. Serve warm.
Makes 4 servings.
