Eggs in a Cloud

Eggs in a Cloud

Many of you may have seen the concept of this breakfast novelty called Eggs in a Cloud. I have featured Eggs in a Basket in a prior post which you can see here, but this variation of an egg and toast combination is slightly different. And I love a good egg, don’t you? What am I saying…I love breakfast for dinner!

Just between you and me (don’t tell anyone), I have decided the older I get the more I think I am losing it! On the drive home from work (unless I still have an important project weighing on my mind), I am thinking about what I have to do once I get home and one of the things is dinner. As I was zipping down the road, I could envision the inside of my pantry and was 100% positive that there was a loaf of bread inside.

Guess what? Once I finally got around to checking the pantry I realized that my memory was not as sharp as I thought…there was NO bread! Oh no! What now? One of the best things for dinner is breakfast, especially on a night when you need a little comforting, whether the need is due to the weather or just plain having a bad day at work.

Well, as it turned out, I needed to make a quick trip to my mother’s house for a different reason, so I stopped in at the local family grocery store. It is a little mom and pop shop that is quaint and convenient.

A novel way to serve eggs for dinner.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Yield: 1-2 servings
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices pre-cooked ham
  • 2 slices Baby Swiss cheese
  • 2 large eggs, separated
Preparation Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Lightly toast bread slices and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites in a mixing bowl until fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. Mound egg whites on top of each slice of bread, forming a well in the center. Slide an egg yolk into the center of each egg white well.
  4. Place sheet pan in the center of the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the egg whites are lightly golden and egg yolks are just set.
  5. Remove sheet pan from oven and serve warm.
Depending on how you like your eggs, the yolks will be over-easy to over-medium. I baked them for 15 minutes and the yolks were perfectly over-medium.

Even though I was a bit under the weather, I was confident that a satisfying dinner would help the cause! And I was right, by the time I went to bed I was feeling a bit better.

The next time you think you might want breakfast food for dinner, I encourage you to try Eggs in a Cloud paired with bacon and orange juice. Yum!

Happy cooking!
