Cloud Eggs are the New Fluffy Breakfast Trend

Avocado toast is so yesterday. See how people are making their eggs lighter and fluffier than ever!

We never thought a meringue could be made savory, but cloud eggs are proving us wrong. This trendy food, also known as eggs in a cloud, is joining the extensive list of ways to scramble, boil, or fry your morning eggs. Foodies everywhere are loving it for the delicious taste and the gorgeous plating potential.

What looks like an egg yolk placed delicately in a bed of fluffy meringue, is actually a cloud of egg whites. The dish is make by whipping the egg whites until they're a light and airy consistency (much like a meringue). The whites are then formed into clouds, baked slightly golden, and removed from the oven. From there, egg yolks are added to the middle and popped back in the oven to finish cooking. The result is a savory, light breakfast that is almost too pretty to eat. Take a look at how fans of cloud eggs are making the dish their own.
