The EGG-cellent offerings this month...

And My Offering...
I probably saw a photo of this recipe on Pinterest - or in a magazine. But I didn't tag it or file it anywhere, so I decided to wing it. It's pretty basic...but really flexible. Use whatever cheese and whatever herbs you have on hand.

Ingredients makes 2
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 T grated cheese (I used a mixture of parmesan, asiago, and mozzarella)
  • 2 t chopped herbs (I used a mixture of dill, fennel greens, oregano and basil)

Procedure
Separate eggs, placing the whites together in a small mixing bowl and the yolks in separate small dishes.


Beat the whites until stiff peaks form. Fold in cheese and herbs.


Spoon into 2 mounds on parchment-lined baking sheet. Make a deep well in center of each. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.


Bake for 3 to 4 minutes. Then gently add 1 yolk to each well. Bake until yolks are set, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. My clouds were a little bit "sunburnt"; bake yours for less time if you want fluffy white clouds.


My taste-testers were so intrigued. They gushed, "Why haven't you ever made this before, Mommy?" And they requested, "Can we have it again tomorrow?!?" Who knew this would be such a hit?

    1. They are soft, like clouds. They didn't get crisp like a meringue would.

  3. Yum! What an interesting idea. I was thinking you had eggs dropped in biscuits or something, I would have never thought of whipping the whites. They look wonderful! We will have to try this!

    1. Yes! Savory meringues...you're right. But they never got crisp like a meringue does. Now I'm going to have to play, Stacy.

  6. These look heavenly. Now I have a weekend breakfast project. Except I can never get "stiff peaks" in my whites...

  7. I actually thought your clouds were biscuits. Reminded me of a recipe that I've been hearing to try. Love your sunburnt clouds!
