Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat with cooking spray.

  • 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 3/4 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.

  • 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.

These are wonderful! One yolk stuck to the bowl and broke when I was transferring to the cloud so will either make sure there is always a bit of white OR very slightly grease the bowl before cracking the egg...otherwise perfect...follwed advice to cook at 400 for 2 minutes for the cloud and a bit more for the yolks (and sprinkled extra Parmesan on the yolks). These will be a regular for us now...heavenly! Read More

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. Read More

I might have done something clouds fell completely. Maybe I should have beat them a little longer? They started deflating as I scooped them onto the baking sheet. The flavor of the Parmesan and scallions was fantastic so I will try it again sometime soon. Read More
