Very Low-Carb Floppy Puffs

Not a bread roll by any stretch of the imagination! But some time ago a dietician wrote down a similar recipe for a friend on a weight-loss diet, and I tweaked it. It's one of those strange, clever ideas, ideal as a pretend-bun for those who should stay away from bread, such as diabetics. I have discovered since that several fairly similar (not exactly the same) recipes are floating round the Internet. This is not bread, it does not puff up enormously, and, eaten as is, it is quite bland. But it can be dressed up with low-carb savoury toppings -- and you could even put a beef pattie between two of these puffs! I experimented a little with these floppies, and found that at room temperature, in a plastic bag, they last for days. I kept some out to see what would happen if they dried out a little, and I liked their texture better after a day or two! Keep in mind that these are especially handy to use with bacon, eggs and a side of sliced tomato! Or to use with any egg dish which needs a "receptacle", such as scrambled eggs or an omelette. By the way, you can toast them too! The nutrition table will show how low-carb they are!!
