Cloud Eggs

Whipped egg whites coddling a yolk. A different approach to traditional bacon and egg breakfast.

Ingredients

Eggs

Directions

Heat oven to 350º F    Foil cover baking sheet

In small bowl separate white from yolk. Place yolk in small bowl. I used the hand method of separating the two.

Whip the egg white until firm peaks form. Butter the foil. Place whipped whites on baking sheet and tease hole in middle to hold the egg yolk. Bake the white for 5-10 minutes, Add yolk carefully not to break it and cook about 5 minutes. Serve.

Note: 

Changes I would make: add herbs or other seasoning to white while whipping.

I opt out of cloud eggs for a traditional recipe. I would not try this again. Pretty presentation though.
