Cloud Eggs – An Eventful Mothers Day Breakfast Even a Kid Could Make! 

Cloud Eggs- A culinary staple in egg cookery but are all the rage right now. So fun to make, and eat! Perfect for a surprise breakfast treat! 

Ingredients:

4 large eggs

Pink Himalayan or Kosher salt

Fresh ground black pepper

1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese.( Fine grate )

3 tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives, for garnish

Method:

Preheat oven to 450° and line a large high sided baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. 

Separate egg whites and egg yolks, placing the egg whites in a large bowl and the yolks in a small bowl. Careful not to break the yolk. Set yolks aside. 

Season the egg whites with salt and pepper. 

Using a whisk or a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. 

Gently fold in Parmesan, and chives. 

Create 4 mounds of egg whites on the prepared baking sheet and indent the centers of each to look like nests. Bake until slightly golden, about 3 minutes.

After three minutes, and whites are sturdy-carefully add an egg yolk to the center of each egg white cloud. 

Season yolk with salt and pepper. Bake until the yolks are just set, about 3 additional minutes.
Enjoy!

Variations

Add chopped cooked pancetta, crumbled bacon, diced ham, small chipped red bell peppers , scallions–or any of your favorite breakfast foods to the egg whites after they have stiff peaks. Be extra careful not to deflate the whites when folding in. Serve with a classic Bloody Mary. On or off toast.
