If you’ve visited the internet any time within the last few months, you might have noticed a new breakfast trend gaining traction: Cloud eggs. What are cloud eggs? In a nutshell, Cloud Eggs are basically fluffier takes on your typical egg.
They are achieved by separating the whites and the yolk, beating the whites until they achieve a foam-like consistency, and seasoning as you choose. Then, you spoon the foam onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, scoop out the center, drop the egg yolk in, and bake for a few minutes. It’s that easy!

- Scoop the egg white mixture onto baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, create a small well in the center of each mound. Carefully place an egg yolk in each well. Season with pepper.
