They’re fluffy, puffy and look like they were made in breakfast heaven. No, we’re not talking about pancakes; we’re talking about eggs. Cloud eggs, to be exact. Here’s how to make these dreamy, delectable treats at home.
What You Need:
- Large eggs
- Electric mixer
- Parchment paper
- Baking sheet
Step 1: Separate the egg yolks and whites. Keep the yolks whole, but you can add all the whites to one large mixing bowl.
Step 2: Use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites until firm peaks start to form.
Step 3: Use a spoon to scoop the egg whites onto a lined baking sheet. (You should be able to form one cloud per egg used.) With the back of the spoon, carve out a small depression or nest in the middle of each cloud.
Step 4: Bake at 400°F for about 4 minutes. The edges of the clouds should just be starting to turn brown.
Step 5: Gently spoon one egg yolk into each of the cloud dents and return to the oven to bake for an additional 4 minutes. Serve warm.
