Max Whitlock's cloud eggs

Cloud eggs
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 10mins

Ingredients

  • 4 British Lion Eggs, separated
  • 25g parmesan, finely grated, plus extra for garnish
  • 100g wafer thin ham, finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp. chives, plus extra to garnish
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 100g baby spinach, slightly wilted

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200Fan/Gas Mark 7. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Whisk the egg whites with an electric hand whisk in a large, clean bowl with some seasoning until stiff.
  3. Using a large metal spoon fold in the parmesan, ham and chives. Place four mounds of egg whites onto the prepared baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon create a slight dip in the middle of each.
  4. Bake for 3-4 minutes, then slide the egg yolk on top and bake for a further 3-4 minutes, until the egg whites are golden.
  5. While the eggs bake heat the olive oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat and add the baby spinach with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until just starting to wilt.
  6. Serve the cloud eggs, scattered with extra chives and parmesan cheese, with the wilted spinach.
