I'm wondering if these would work in a stuffing.
I may make a small batch and try it

I bet they would. My mom would dry her bread in a low oven before making her stuffing.

Love these buns, just had a tuna sandwich, yum. I have found adding things like tom, lettuce etc. they end up crumbling all over the place. so now I eat my burgers with just meat, cheese and maybe a slice of onion.

Question, do you guys really trust counting these and the cakes as zero? also does your blood sugars rise?

TY Debbie....

I've been wondering the same thing - I've been pondering ordering more, and I don't eat them often, but I'd still like to know!

I think everyone should test themselves. I've had no meaningful BS rise.

Nope.
The texture was all wrong; it didn't absorb the moisture or flavor right; and it was just wrong lol.

Yeah, I have had that crumbling problem too, so I put the burger and cheese on the thinner top bun and the veggies on the fat bottom bun. It stays together a bit better that way.

I always cut the buns in thirds and toast them. Stays together for me no matter what I'm using it for.

I think I read that the buns are now being mechanically cut? This may make it harder to get three slices.

just used these as a bagel sub. Of course they are not that fantastic chewy bagely texture, but still a wonderful carrier for cream cheese and smoked salmon. Yum.

hi ouizoid,
Not the change the subject but the Low Carb Bread Company has some pretty good bagels, in my opinion.
http://www2.netrition.com/glc_bread_company_bagels.html

I tried the plain and the cinnamon ones. They both are good when toasted, but the cinnamon ones really don't have much cinnamon flavor, so they work good with s/f jam.

This seems silly but how are you all getting the smart bun to toast? In the toaster mine starts smoking and burning around the edges but the bun itself remains soft.

Yeah, same problem...I've started cutting mine in half both ways, which is fine for toast...perhaps not so fine if you're using it as a burger bun! Does slightly better when I've heated it for a few seconds beforehand in the microwave...

I haven't tried toasting them yet. I always cook them on the grill. They come out good on the grill.

Well, I bit the bullet about a month ago and ordered these. Not easy to impress me w/ lc breads but..........omg, I was shocked at how good. I actually had them for 2 wks before trying but hubby was going by McD's to pick himself up some supper, so I had him to get me a double ch. burger. I of course put the meat on the Smart bun. A extremely acceptable lc bun. Mine did come split thru the middle, I actually find it to be just a tad bit too much bread, so the 2nd time, I just sliced some off of the bottom pc and threw the other pc bk into the freezer. Love, that they come individually wrapped. Expensive but nice to have in the freezer.

The cinnamon flavor is indeed slight. But, I put some Kerrygold on it, a sprinkle of cinnamon/Swerve mix, and then broiled it in the toaster oven. Oh yum!

Toasted Smart Bun

Vanille Latte ~ that's a great idea. Thank you.

I finally toasted a smart bun last night. I tried toasting it on the lowest setting and I had to do that 3 times until it got toasted. It was toasted somewhat on top, but the bun was still pretty soft on the bottom. I used it for an open faced sloppy joey type thing so it worked okay for that.

To get crunchy low carb bread to toast. Butter it well.
Place more butter in small non-stick skillet and fry it.
Yes it gets crispy.

P.S. I think when feeling better, I am going to try making Smart Bun dumplings.
BTW Quizoid, I still owe you a thankful heart for sharing this bun with us.

Thanks for this Barbo. I appreciate your help. I'll try the skillet method next time.

I used to love to toast regular hamburger buns that way. Funny, I had forgotten about that...guess its been that long since I ate a real bun. lol
Or else its sometimers....I get accused of having that a lot or selective memory. (my bad)

Have a recipe all worked out the make Smart Bun Dumplings.
All I need now is energy to do so. Cannot wait.. Have a great feeling about them.
The dumplings made with glucomannan (sp) have a slick mouth feel to me that is
unpleasant, so I'm a hoping and a praying these will be good.

I have that lack of energy and I also lack motivation when it comes to trying something new. I'm a work in progress. lol

I hope you get some energy soon, Barbo. I know you are a great cook. I love all your recipes and I'm not skeered of making them.

Abigale, you will get energy if you just keep practicing.... that's what I'm doing...practicing.

Smart Cakes

Has anyone tried this same company's Smart Cakes? 38 calories a cake and zero carbs if you count the erythritol in the math. Otherwise 4 net carbs.
These are delicious small snack cakes. I made a berry short cake with mine. I will definitely be ordering more.

I have tried all three flavors. Especially liked the coconut and the cinnamon ones. A berry shortcake sounds delicious!
