Sour Cream and Chive Egg Clouds

    makes 8 egg clouds (2 per serving) · prep time: 10 minutes cook time: 6 minutes

    These egg clouds are one of my favorite ways to jazz up my morning breakfast routine and get new flavors and textures from my eggs. They are also a great way to get kids excited about eating eggs for breakfast.


    • 8 large eggs
    • ¼ cup shredded sharp white cheddar cheese
    • ¼ cup full-fat sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 2 fresh chives, sliced, divided
    • 2 teaspoons salted butter


    1.Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    2.Separate the eggs, pouring the whites into a large mixing bowl and each yolk into a small ramekin or bowl.
    3.Using an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer, whip the egg whites until they are fluffy and stiff peaks start to form.
    4.Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, and half of the chives into the whipped egg whites.
    5.Spoon the mixture into 8 separate mounds on the prepared baking sheet. Use a large spoon to make a well in the center of each cloud. Gently pour an egg yolk into each well.
    6.Bake for 6 minutes, or until the egg clouds are golden brown on top and the yolks are set.
    7.Place ¼ teaspoon of butter on top of each yolk, then garnish with the remaining chives.

    tip: Try mixing things up a bit and adding some chopped bacon or crumbled sausage to the egg white mixture.
