Cloud Eggs (eggs in clouds)


Cloud Eggs (aka. eggs in clouds) are the instagrammable breakfast dish you know you’ve been curious to try – an easy to make savouriy meringue breakfast that’s sure to impress.


  • 8 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup parmesan, grated
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare a large baking tray by greasing it with cooking spray, or by using a baking sheet.
  2. Using an electric mixer, whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form (about 5 minutes). Gently fold in parmesan.
  3. Spoon 8 mounds of the whipped egg whites on to the baking sheet, and use a spoon to create a small indent in the centre (think: a nest for your yolks). Bake until cooked through, and the edges begin to brown; 3 minutes.
  4. Carefully spoon one yolk into each of the prepared ‘nests’. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bake for about 3 minutes, until the yolks are just set.
  5. Serve on toast for a little extra bite, and some great photos at the breakfast table.


Remember: You want stiff peaks. Stiff peaks = beautiful cloud eggs. (…soft peaks = sad puddles that once aspired to be cloud eggs)

Be careful when separating your eggs. Meringues can be a bit snobby, and they don’t play nice if a little yolk tries to get mixed in.
