Eggs in A Cloud Recipe

Let me preface this by saying I am no whiz or genius in the kitchen. I can whip up a few things to save my life, but to be honest, I see a husband who will be cooking 99% of the meals in my future lol !

Most of the recipes on my blog took so many tries to get it right. For each recipe I get right, there are 6 more which bit the dust. Even though I find it difficult, I keep trying to gain some skills. Hopefully if I try enough, i’ll get it right at least once then muscle memory will take over.

I’ve seen this recipe all over Pinterest for the past few weeks! I looks so good in the pictures, and the tutorial videos make it look so easy. For me, it’s not. I guess you can tell by now that this did not turn out so well. To be honest, it’s not difficult, but I can be a little klutz sometimes ha.

Wednesday morning I finally decided to take the plunge and try out this recipe. I cracked, separated, whipped and lightly mixed as well as I could. Funny enough, my dad, grandma and I still ate it even though I left it in the oven too long – I was trying to get the yolks to the perfect hardness because I don’t like runny eggs – and it got dry and crispy.

I think I needed to whip up the egg whites into stiffer peaks than I did because as soon as I mixed in the shredded cheddar, it began to revert O.o . You can see the runny part all over the pan separated from the fluffy clouds. Maybe the salt had something to do with it. I also didn’t add as many ingredients as the original recipe because I didn’t have them on hand. When I tried using the bottle to separate the yolks, most burst so I could only top 2. We won’t talk about the one on the bottom left.
