Magnificent Egg Clouds

I dumped meat years ago, though some of my treasured summer moments have involved shashlyki (skewered meat cooked on a grill next to the lake or forest in a company of friends or family).  Nonetheless it was relatively easy breakup for me – for one thing sure, I couldn’t go completely vegan as eggs & dairy, especially cheese, kept me tight.

I love eggs too.  For their simplicity and yet limitless possibilities with egg-based dishes. Like this dreamy delicious egg-treat with whole creamy yolks and a cloud of egg whites baked to perfection. If you keep a good relationship with meat – you can also mix in some cooked breakfast sausage or bacon, for the rest of us – sautéed onion & fresh herbs will make an excellent choice.

Magnificent Egg Clouds

Preparation + cooking time: 15 min / Serves 2

We would need:

  • 2 free-ranged eggs
  • a good pinch of  grated parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • some freshly chopped chives

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to Gas mark 8/ 450°F/ 230 °C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Separate eggs, putting whites in one large bowl and yolks in a separate little cups.
  3. Whip the whites until stiff peaks form, for about 2 minutes.
  4. Gently stir in the cheese (bacon bits or sautéed onion), then divide the whites into 2 “cloud” shapes and place them on the baking sheet. Create a deep well in a the center or each cloud.
  5. Bake for 3 minutes, then add yolk to each well and bake for another 2 to 3 minutes or until yolks are just set.
  6. Season with salt & pepper , garnish with and serve hot! Bon app!

With love,
Marie
