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.
I probably should have taken them out 2 minutes after this, but that didn’t happen.
I didn’t take a photo of the final product. Trust me you aren’t missing out.
Anyhoo … here’s the original article from Buzzfeed:
The instructions in the article are as follows:
“Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 eggs, yolks separated
- Salt, to taste
- Pepper, to taste
- ⅓ cup shredded parmesan cheese
- ⅓ cup bacon, crumbled
- ¼ cup chives, chopped
- Two mixing bowls
- Electric mixer or whisk
- Baking tray
Here’s what you’ll do:
1) Preheat oven to 450°F/230°C.
2) Separate the eggs: egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks each into their own bowls.
3) Using an electric mixer or whisk, mix the egg whites until thick and fluffy.
4) Fold in bacon, parmesan cheese, and chives. Do not overfold.
5) Scoop onto baking tray and make an indent in the middle using the back of a spoon.
6) Bake for 5-8 minutes or until egg whites start to brown.
7) Place the egg yolks into center of the egg whites. Bake for 3 more minutes.
8) Enjoy! “
I had big hopes for this one because it was such an interesting take on eggs. With more practice, I’ll master this cloud business!!
Will you try it? If you do, let me know! Tried any interesting recipes lately?
Be happy, healthy and a cooking!!
P.S. I’m particularly proud of this recipe: Banana Bread with Cream Cheese Filling ! I worked so hard on this one lol Go check it out!
