Cloud Eggs Served over Sautéed Greens and Drizzled with Hot Honey

One of our favorite ways to begin the day is with Cloud Eggs. These delicate, airy creations look like something you’d find at a fancy brunch spot, yet they’re surprisingly easy to make. Imagine breaking into the soft, cloud-like egg white to reveal the rich, golden yolk, perfectly paired with sautéed greens, as I’ll show you in this recipe. Or perhaps you’d prefer them served with silky lox and a smear of cream cheese, or nestled atop a comforting bed of grits. The variations are endless!

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs, separating the whites from the yolks
  • Seasoning to your liking: garlic powder, salt and pepper
  • Hot honey, like this one
  • Whatever you choose to serve the eggs over (unless you choose to eat them a la carte!) See note below

 

 

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a stand mixer, add the egg whites and seasoning to taste. Whip until stiff peaks have formed.
  • On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper dollop 6 small mounts of egg whites, spooning them into little round clouds. Add a small crater in the center of the mound, then gently place an egg yolk into it.
  • Sprinkle a little salt over the egg yolk before putting in the oven to bake for 11-12 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool for a minute before transferring to a plate. Drizzle with hot honey, maybe a grating of parmesan cheese to your liking.

Note:

  • You can eat this as is, or you can jazz it up by serving it alongside some avocado and lox, over a bowl of grits, or over a bed of sautéed greens like I did. To make the sautéed greens: in a small plan, sauté a little garlic in butter, then add in whatever chopped up greens you have available (I used the tops of beetroot and watercress. Any bitter green like turnip greens or even kale will work well too). Once wilty, add a tiny splash of soy sauce and the juice of 1/2 a lemon or lime. Plate and serve your cloud eggs over top. Don’t skimp on the hot honey! The salty bitter greens, the gooey egg yolk, and the hot honey are a real winning combination.
