Egg in a Cloud

Makes 2 servings

Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 3 min


slices whole wheat bread
eggs, separated
Pinch pepper Pinch
2 tbsp shredded Cheddar or Swiss cheese 30 ml


Step 1
Toast bread. Place on baking sheet.

Step 2
Beat egg whites and pepper in medium bowl with electric mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread half of beaten egg whites on each slice of toast. Make indentation in middle of egg whites with back of spoon. Broil about 5 inches (12 cm) from heating element until egg whites are golden coloured, about 1 minute.

Step 3
Remove from oven and carefully drop one egg yolk in each indentation. Sprinkle cheese over top. Place under broiler until cheese melts and yolks are slightly set, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.


If desired, gently fold in a pinch of Italian seasoning or other dried herbs to stiffly beaten egg whites.
It is easier to separate the egg white from the yolk when the egg is cold. A small funnel is handy for separating egg whites from yolks. Place the funnel over a measuring cup. Crack the egg over the funnel. The white will run through and the yolk will remain in the funnel. 
Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl; plastic bowls can have a greasy film which can prevent foaming.
