Well speaking of the great firmament, these little clouds of creation are truly heavenly.
Light and airy meringue clouds filled with the ooey gooey delicious sunshine orange of the yolks.
And it’s so very easy.
Eggs in Clouds
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, shredded (totally optional)
Florida Sunshine sea salt (of course, we are talking SUNSHINE eggs in clouds here)**
**really, any seasoning will do
Preheat oven to 45o degrees.
Separate egg yolks and whites, putting the whites in one large metal bowl and the yolks in the broken shells or 4 separate bowls.
In a metal mixing bowl, whip the whites until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold in the cheese (if desired), and seasoning.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon 4 mounds of whipped egg whites. Make a deep well in the center of each with the back of a spoon.
Bake at 450 degrees F for 3 minutes and remove from oven.
Add one yolk to each well and return to oven and bake until yolks set, about 2-3 minutes for a soft, gooey egg yolk.
You’re now living on Cloud Nine AND walking on sunshine!
