The latest breakfast egg trend! Cloud eggs or eggs in clouds are super customizable and so easy to make! Perfect for brunch for one, a couple or many!

YUP. That’s me. Trend follower caught red-handed beating egg whites on a Saturday morning after news broke that Cloud Eggs were the latest foodie thing. Not to mention further bona fided by articles written by Bon Appetit, Refinery 29 and even Mashable! ALL stating that they will be the latest instagrammable breakfast.

So are they a new thing? NOPE.

Rachael Ray posted a Eggs in Clouds recipe way back in 2012, and videos have been floating around youtube for a while – so what gives? Well, to be honest, they’re INTRIGUING! As you make them, you feel as though you’re making meringues and you keep thinking to yourself: “Will my eggs get meringue-y? Will they taste like puffs of air? Will I succeed?”

Answers: Nope, not really and yes. You don’t bake the eggs long enough to get that hard texture on the outside like a meringue, they don’t quite taste like puffs of air but more like a really puffy yorkshire, and you definitely will because the recipe is super simple!

Not to mention, the recipe is super customizable because you can add anything to your egg clouds – some cheese, chives and bacon! BRING IT ON!

Also, not really about cloud eggs…

I am loving these new plates I found at the dollar store! Not to smack down those millennial pink lovers, but as a millennial, I think we should have a millennial grey-blue (grlue? should we make it a thing? LOL!).

Hope you enjoy!
