Fluffy Cloud Eggs


" It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die! " - Agnes (Despicable Me)


My feelings exactly. Cottony white cloud eggs are, I daresay, the stuff of foodie dreams from the enthusiasm I saw sweeping Facebook and Instagram a couple of months ago. I don't know if it's still a thing online but we love it here. My husband is an egg-loving person so it was something I had to try. Variety is the spice of life, right? Poached eggs, fried eggs, soft-boiled eggs, now cloud eggs.

Imagine biting into a savoury marshmallow - the best description I can come up with to give you an idea what this tastes like. Would you believe that it's easy to make?

Fluffy Cloud Egg

A hand mixer and an egg is all that is needed to create this. For taste, I top mine with cheese. It goes into the oven for awhile and voila! 

Cloud Eggs
Ingredients:
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp grated cheddar cheese and 1 tbsp grated Vergeer Old Holland cheese (or cheese of choice)
- 1 slice of tomato
- Some chopped spring onions
- A pinch of black pepper

Method:
1) Separate egg white from yolk.
2) Using a mixer, beat egg white until stiff and fluffy.
3) Pour the beaten egg onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Use a spoon to gently spread the top of the egg white to make a hole in the center, for the egg yolk to sit in.
4) Slide the yolk in. Sprinkle cheese over.
5) Bake in a pre-heated oven for about five to seven minutes until lightly browned.
6) Serve with a pinch of black pepper and the tomato. Garnish with chopped spring onions.

1) Cheese, Tomato, Egg Yolk, Spring Onions.
2) Beat egg white until stiff and fluffy.
3) Transfer egg white onto baking tray. 4) Make a hole in the center.
5) Slide egg yolk into the middle. 6) Sprinkle with cheese and bake!

There you go, a delicious cloud egg.
