Cloud Eggs: This impressive dish is easier than it looks!
Prep Time: 15 mins Total Time: 20 mins Yields: 4
8 large eggs
1 c. freshly grated Parmesan
1/2 lb. deli ham, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
Freshly chopped chives, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 450° and grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Separate egg whites and yolks, placing egg whites in a large bowl and yolks in a small bowl. Using a whisk or hand mixer, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, 3 minutes. Gently fold in Parmesan and ham and season with salt and pepper.
- Spoon 8 mounds of egg whites onto prepared baking sheet and indent centers to form nests. Bake until lightly golden, about 3 minutes.
- Carefully spoon an egg yolk into center of each nest and season with salt and pepper. Bake until yolks are just set, about 3 minutes more.
- Garnish with chives before serving.
