Egg Clouds

Wake up to happy clouds of light, fluffy egg whites filled with a perfectly runny yolk center.


  • 4 large eggs
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced chives
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked until crisp
  • Sliced bread, toasted and buttered


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed sheet tray with parchment paper.
  2. Separate egg yolks from whites. Add whites to a large bowl and yolks to individual ramekins.
  3. Season whites with a pinch of salt then whip with an electric mixer until stiff peaks appear. Plop 4 small piles of egg whites onto the prepared parchment paper. Use a spoon to make a small nest for each yolk. Bake for 3 minutes, until edges are slightly golden. Remove from oven and plop a yolk into each nest. Season each with a pinch of salt.
  4. Return to oven and bake about 3 minutes, until the edges of the yolks just start to set but the center is still runny. Sprinkle with chives. Serve with buttered toast and crisp bacon.
