Cloud Eggs Breakfast Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup black truffle cheddar cheese
  • salt
  • sourdough sliced and toasted
  • basil

Method:

  1. Pre-heat oven 220°C (430°F). Line a baking sheet with non stick baking paper.
  2. Separate egg whites from egg yolks. Place egg whites in a medium bowl. Place egg yolks in individual smaller bowls.
  3. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until still peaks form. Then gently fold through the grated cheese.
  4. Place four even mounds of the egg white mixture on the lined baking tray. Bake for 3 minutes.
  5. After 3 minutes remove tray from oven and carefully place an egg yolk on top of each egg white mound. You may need to create a slight indent on top of the egg whites to stop the egg yolk sliding off.
  6. Place tray back in the oven for 3 minutes to finish cooking.
  7. Serve clouds immediately with toasted sourdough and basil leaves.

Please Note: Egg yolks are gooey when backed for 3 minutes. If you want runny yolks bake for 2 minutes, and for more solid cooked through egg bake for 4 minutes.
