Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese 8g
  • Salt and pepper To taste

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (360 Fahrenheit).
  • Crack and separate the eggs, You can do this using any egg separating method you prefer, when I'm cooking with kids I show them how to carefully use their hands to scoop out the egg yolk, this means less chance of eggshell getting in my eggs!
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Add the parmesan (or other seasoning) you can either fold or beat the seasoning in to the egg whites.
  • Line a baking tray with baking paper, Scoop the beaten egg whites into cloud shapes on the lined tray. Using a spoon create an indentation in the centre of each one (this is where the yolk will go). Bake in your preheated oven for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the baked egg whites from the oven, carefully place the egg yolks into the indentations and return to the oven for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • Once the egg yolk is cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and enjoy!
