Cloud eggs is the new kale/black or whatever the new trend is. So I had to try it. Normally I'm not a big fa of baked eggs. The rubbery texture of baked eggs do not agree with me. So the fluffiness of the cloud eggs could be the solution for a baked egg in my world. Plus adding cheese and ham to the egg, makes it a home run in my book.
- 4 eggs, divided in yolks and whites
- ½ cup (1 dl) grated parmesan
- 4 thinly slices of ham, diced
- salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 450℉ (230℃) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
When I divide the eggs, I place each yolk in its own little prep bowl, making it easier to place the yolks on their own little cloud.
Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks. Gently fold in cheese, ham, and season with a little bit salt and pepper.
Place the 4 mounds of the egg whites, making the mounds so they look like little nests (clouds), with an indentation in the center.
Bake for 3 minutes, and remove from oven.
Carefully place a yolk in each cloud, sprinkle with a little pepper. Bake for another 3 minutes, until the yolks are just about to set.
Serve immediately with a sprinkle of chives on top.
