The recipe title Egg-in-a-Cloud rings true—the texture of the baked egg whites mixed with Parmesan cheese creates a wonderfully airy, cloud-like texture. This texture allows the egg yolk to nestle perfectly inside, creating that egg-in-a-hole type of dish we all love so much.
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 1/8 cup fresh (or dried) chives
Essential Kitchen Tools:
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- stand or hand mixer
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 450° and separate the egg whites from yolks, placing the egg whites in a mixing bowl. Place each remaining yolk in its own individual ramekin or bowl. Set the yolks in the refrigerator while you work with the whites.
Step 2: Using either a stand or hand mixer, whip the egg whites until stiff, about 5 minutes.
Step 3: Once the egg whites are stiff, gently fold in the cheese and chives.
Step 4: Scoop egg white mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, create a small dent in each cloud, and bake for 5 minutes. (I coated the parchment paper with cooking spray, but it isn’t necessary.)
Step 5: Gently place a yolk in the dent of each cloud, and bake for another 2 minutes.
