Diana’s been rolling out the oopsie roll revolution (so many puns, so little time) in her own kitchen (see this beautimous cake), and her latest, mouth-watering offering is no exception.
Showcasing even more of her mad cooking skills, you can bring the magic of the oopsie roll to your favorite casseroles, too. Diana’s Mexican Oopsie Bake is proof that even if your normal oopsie rolls fall short, nothing about this recipe will.
Thoughts and recipe ruminations:
- This recipe makes enough to fill 2-8″x8″ pans, but you could combine into a larger casserole dish.
- For a down-home feel and presentation, bake in a large cast iron skillet.
- This dish would be great for dutch oven camping cooking. Just make sure to keep a consistent heat to prevent the oopsie topping from over browning.
- This dish is gluten free and induction friendly, ringing in at only 2 net carbs per serving. Cha-ching! Nosh it down you hotties, and bring your finicky kids along for the ride.
Diana’s Mexican Oopsie Bake
1lb ground beef
1/4 cup enchilada sauce (Diana used El Paso brand)
1/4 cup salsa (Diana used Herdez brand)
1 tbsp onion powder, or 1/3 cup onion, diced
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
1 small can chopped green chilis, divided
1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 cup cheese, divided
Oopsie bread batter:
3 oz cream cheese
1/8 tsp Cream of Tartar
2 to 3 Tbsp Flaxseed meal (or unflavored whey protein powder)
2 tsp sugar equivalent substitute
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cook ground beef. Add seasonings, enchilada sauce, salsa, half a can of green chili, and 1/2 cup cheese. Set aside.
Make Oopsie bread by separating the egg yolks from the whites. Whip the whites with the tartar until stiff peaks form. Combine the yolks with the cream cheese, flaxseed meal/protein powder, sweetener and the rest of the green chili’s and cheese.
Slowly fold the yolk mixture with the whites. Take the ground beef mixture and add to a 8×8 baking dish. Pour the Oopsie batter on top, spreading evenly. You can even add more cheese, chilis and some black olives on top of the batter.
Bake at 300 for 30 to 40 minutes. The top will be slightly brown.
Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Serving size: 2 8X8″ bakes or 1 bake and a small pan of bread. Just divide the batter in half. Makes 12 servings.
