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)

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. I think they are gorgeous and I like that they are browned a bit.

    1. Thanks for hosting, Wendy. This was a fun recipe to make.

  2. I am SO making these this weekend! My son will love these. These are beautiful and I am so curious to see the texture of the "cloud" - so pretty!

    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. THAT sounds interesting, too. These were wonderful. Let me know if you try them.

  4. What a fabulous idea, Camilla! It's savory meringues which never occurred to me before. Pinning these on my Recipes to Try board!

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

  5. These are gorgeous, and they look so tasty. I love how unique they are. I am definitely trying these. I can't wait to see how the egg whites taste! Thanks for such a great recipe!

  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!

  8. What a yummy eggy idea! Looks like it would make a great breakfast.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
