  • 4 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • Ground pepper to taste

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
  2. Separate egg whites from the yolks, placing each yolk in an individual small bowl. Beat all of the egg whites and salt in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Gently fold Parmesan and scallions into the beaten whites with a rubber spatula. Make 4 mounds (about ¾ cup each) of egg-cheese mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Make a well in the middle of each mound with the back of a spoon.
  3. Bake the egg whites until starting to lightly brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven. If the well has filled in during baking, use the spoon to recreate it. Gently slip a yolk into each well. Bake until the yolks are cooked but still runny, 3 to 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with pepper. Serve immediately.

Really simple and delicious. I didn't need to improve on eggs over easy, but this is great. I had to make it 2x to get the timing just right with the whites and the yolk. But once I turned the temp down on the oven to 400, it worked like a charm. Don't watch the yolks and expect them to change appearance much. Just cook them very swiftly and take them out. The yolk will be just right. Only cook the whites for a minute or two tops. The texture of the whites is nice, you can pick it up with your hands if you want and tear it apart.
