I came across an article recently about the new phenomenon of ‘cloud eggs’. I was intrigued…cloud eggs?! The accompanying photo was a fascinating white, rock-like mound with an egg yolk on top. I was without a doubt going to try out the recipe given in the article. I thought I would make a mess but my cloud eggs turned out pretty good! Here’s my recipe 🙂
Makes 4 Cloud Eggs | Preparation Time: 10 mins | Cooking Time: 6 mins
- 4 Medium Free-Range Eggs
- 2 tablespoons Fresh Chives (chopped)
- 3 tablespoons sliced Turkey Rashers
- 1/2 cup Grated Cheddar Cheese
- Salt and pepper for flavour
- Preheat oven to 425F/220C/200C Fan/Gas Mark 7. Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.
- Separate the egg white from the yolk. Add the egg whites to a large bowl, and carefully place the egg yolks into a small bowl. Add salt and pepper (to taste) to the egg whites.
- Using a hand whisk or electric whisk, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
- Add in the cheese, chives and turkey rashers, and fold into the egg whites carefully.
- Place four mounds of the egg white mixture onto the baking tray. Create a nest in the centre of each mound and place the tray in the oven for 3 minutes.
- Place an egg yolk in the nest, season with salt and pepper, and return to the oven for a further 2-3 minutes.
