If you have never heard of, or tried Cloud Eggs, then today you are in for a real treat! Also known as Egg Nests, these cute-looking egg whites look like fluffy clouds, hence their name. They are fun to make and great to photograph, so check out how to make them below and have a go yourself.
- 4 eggs
- 4 slices of bread
- Additional ingredients to suit, such as grated cheese, chopped ham or chopped onion
- Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper
- Turn the oven on to 200C (450F)
- Carefully separate the whites and egg yolks. This is best done in separate containers so as to not have any shell or yolk in the whites.
- Choose a very clean glass bowl and thoroughly clean the electric mix beaters/whisk attachment to ensure any other residue has been removed. The cleaner you can get them, the better
- Add the 4 egg whites to the bowl with a pinch of salt and start beating the until you have stiff peaks
- Add in any other ingredients of your choice and very gently fold them into the egg whites
- Scoop the meringue-type mixture onto the baking paper in 4 separate mounds and use a small spoon to press down the centre of each creating a 'nest' into which the yolk can later be placed (not yet though)
- Pop the baking tray into the oven and cook for around 3 minutes until the mounds are firm enough to add the yolk - be careful not overcook
- Remove the baking tray and quickly but carefully add the unbroken yolks into the prepared nest on top of the mounds
- Return the tray to the oven and cook for a further 3-5 minutes until the egg whites are browned and the yolk has just set
- While they are in the oven, toast the bread and place on plates ready to receive the eggs (butter if preferred)
- Remove from the oven and carefully scoop the cooked eggs onto each slice of toast
- Salt and pepper to taste and serve hot
- The whites should still be fluffy and the yolks should spill over the whites as soon as they are cut.
