Traditionally, the rolls are made in pairs, so that you have two to make a sandwich. I made a a few of them just to test the recipe, and they are actually quite good. I used a pair to make a sandwich one day, and enjoyed another pair with some hummus the next day. Very simple, and quite tasty. A bit crunchy and crumbly.
I used a very low fat cottage cheese in my rolls, only .04%, so that is what I used for the Nutritional Information in my recipe.
I am about to make up another, larger batch today, and those I don’t eat today, I will freeze… I know that meringues freeze well so I am sure these rolls will too.
You can make as many at a time as you like. Just multiply the ingredients by the number of rolls you want to make and then alter the instructions accordingly.
Makes 1 2-piece roll
- 1 fresh egg
- 1 Tbs cottage cheese
- 1/8 tsp cream of tartar
- Preheat the oven to 300°F.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Crack the egg and separate the white from the yolk in 2 different medium size bowls.
- Add the cream of tartar to the egg white and beat until stiff peaks form.
- Add the cottage cheese to the egg yolk and beat until well blended.
- Carefully fold the yolk-cheese mixture into the stiff egg whites, taking care not to break them down. They do not have to be well-blended.
- With a 1/4 cup measure, scoop out the batter and make a mound on the parchment sheet.
- Repeat with rest of the batter.
- Bake for one hour.
- Remove to wire rack and let cool before using.

Two pieces go very nicely together to make a sandwich!
