FRI-YAY 🙌. Who's tried a cloud egg before? ☁️ It requires a little more effort but is totally worth a try. I served mine on a crumpet stack with smoked salmon & avocado 😍. Recipe: ☁️ Preheat the oven to 180C. ☁️ Separate an egg, leaving the yolk to one side. Whisk the egg whites until light & fluffy (as if you were making meringue). ☁️ Spoon the egg white onto a lined baking tray and create a well in the centre. ☁️ Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then add the yolk to the centre and bake for another 3 mins. ☁️ Carefully remove from the baking tray and serve. .

Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 eggs, separated
- 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan
- 1 teaspoon of chopped chives
Here’s what you do:
1. First, begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. When that’s done, line a baking sheet with some parchment paper and set it aside.
2. After separating your eggs out, beat the egg whites along with salt and pepper in a bowl with an electric mixer. Keep beating it until stiff peaks start to form before folding in your Parmesan cheese as well.
3. Next, take your resulting egg whites and form two molds of them onto your baking sheet. Make a little indent in the center of each little mound using a wooden spoon.
4. At this stage, you can pop your egg whites in the oven to bake until they turn slightly brown—this should take about two to three minutes. After that, take your eggs out of the oven and carefully put your yolk back in the center of each one. Put it back in the oven and cook until the yolks set, or for about three more minutes.
5. When the time’s up, your cloud eggs should be finished! Slide them off the baking sheet with a spatula and serve them on plates alongside any other of your favorite breakfast items. Add chives!
As you can see, the process of making these eggs couldn’t be easier. Although it may seem a little unusual, cloud eggs are deliciously light with a little bit of crunch and should add some variety to your breakfast. Even if you don’t want to switch from the tried and true scrambled or over easy varieties of these recipes, at least you’ll know what the newest internet food craze is all about!
