How to Make "Cloud Eggs"—the New Instagram 'It' Food
Your breakfast is about to get a whole lot dreamier.
Gone are the days when some avocado smeared on toast would be considered a photo op. The Instagram foods of 2017 are mythical, ethereal, and downright otherworldly. We've seen unicorn lattes and mermaid toast-now everyone is buzzing about "cloud eggs." This airy twist on traditional baked eggs looks pretty much like you'd imagine:
So how does one make their breakfast look like a puffy mass that descended from the sky? The process is surprisingly simple. We asked Kelly Senyei, a trained chef and food blogger based in Newport Beach, CA, and founder of Just a Taste, to share how it's done. (Psst: Here's How to Make Sheet Pan Eggs-and Why You Should.)
Serve on toast or eat them on their own. For flavor variations, you could also fold in grated cheese, herbs, or ham into the egg whites before baking.
As Hoda Kotb noted on the Today Show, the "clouds" offer a fluffy texture akin to bread, so you may not even miss the carbs when eaten a la carte. There you have it-a nutritional excuse to get on the #cloudeggs bandwagon. Enjoy!
