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.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
