This recipe is posted as a courtesy to those following a variety of low-carb and ketogenic diets (not necessarily Meal Plans designed by me). This recipe may or may not be appropriate for you.
As mentioned in an earlier post, sometimes my recipes are developed out of my own need for a low carb product, and sometimes are initiated at a client’s request. The creation of a larger-size Kaiser bun which could also be used as a hamburger bun came at the request of someone that follows me on Facebook, and is a modification of the recipe I posted yesterday for Keto Yeast Rolls .
This recipe produces an ever-so-slightly denser bun that will hold up to even the juiciest burgers and wettest sandwich toppings. They have a wonderful authentic bread-like texture and the yeasty smell when baking makes the process of making them just delightful.
There is no “eggie” taste to these because they’re made with egg white and only painted with the yolks as a wash and unlike most keto bread fare, there is no cheese in this recipe so they are suitable for those that can’t tolerate dairy.
While instant yeast doesn’t require “proofing” (activation in water), it is dissolved in lukewarm water before being added to the dry ingredients in this recipe in order to impart their hallmark yeast-taste but the bulk of the leavening action comes from the beaten egg white and vinegar.
As Kaiser Rolls or Hamburger Buns these low carb buns are delicious
These buns make lunchtime a breeze because delicious, authentic sandwiches are possible and at only 10 g net carbs and almost 10 g of protein each, these rolls can fit into most a Meal Plans.
Below is the recipe with some pictures of the process.
2 tbsp sesame seeds
2– Dissolve the instant yeast and few grains of sugar in the 1/2 cup of lukewarm water, and allow it to proof. It will get foamy, which is what you want. (Note: The yeast feed on the sugar so it doesn’t add carbs to the rolls but feel free to leave it out if you can’t have it for whatever reason).
12 – Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and either use or pack into a large heavy weight zippered bag, remove the air with a straw, and refrigerate or freeze for later use.
