Egg is probably one staple ingredient is use for breakfast, it is so versatile you can have it hard boiled, scrambled, over easy, fried, poach and baked. It is easy to prepare regardless of how you want it cool, plus it is affordable breakfast that most people love it, me included. So what’s in a egg? Let’s go check!
What’s In an Egg?
Yolk is the yellow portion of the egg and this is full of nutrients, vitamins and fats. Those who are watching their diet normally avoid the egg yolk because of the fat content. Then we have the White which is packed with protein and water, the healthy part of the egg. Have you noticed, there is a white strand floating somewhere in the mix? I thought before this is part of the egg white, but it seems this is actually part of what makes up the egg. This is called the chalazae. It anchors the yolk to the white and to the inside of the shell, keeping the yolk suspended.
How to Store Egg
- Always keep eggs in the carton. the carton protects the eggs and prevents them from absorbing strong odors and flavors of other foods in your fridge through the thousands of tiny pores in the egg shell. Secondly, the Best Before Date is always visible to you so you can guarantee freshness. Lastly, eggs should always be stored with the large end up, the same way they are packaged in the carton. This helps the yolk remain centered.
- Eggs should not be stored on the refrigerator door, but in the main body of the refrigerator to ensure that they keep a consistent and cool temperature.
- Leftover raw egg whites and yolks should be put in airtight containers and stored in the refrigerator immediately. To prevent yolks from drying out, cover them with a little cold water. Drain the water before using.
- When storing hard boiled eggs, you may notice a “gassy” odor in your refrigerator. The odor is caused by hydrogen sulphide, which forms when eggs are cooked. It’s harmless and usually dissipates in a few hours.
There are quite a lot of variations of this egg in a hole. The traditional is just bread and egg. And there’s also a sandwich variation, 2 slices o bread not 1. My version is a slight variation of the traditional one, but with a slight twist. I’ve added some cheddar cheese on top to give the bread a nice cheesy crunch on the outside, plus cheese on bread makes this extra special and delicious. So why not?
What is Cloud Egg?
Imagine it as like an egg sitting in a soft, thick, fluffy cloud but something that you could actually touch and eat. Kidding aside, it is basically a simple egg prepared in a different interesting way. The egg white is whisked until thick and fluffy (like a cloud) and then baked until the exterior is lightly toasted and then the egg yolk is added in the center and baked again. The egg white portion resembles like a thick cloud (hence the name Cloud Egg). It is so soft, reminds me of a fluffy airy cotton candy but maybe think of it as a softer meringue. This is a great way to serve egg, exciting and fun. You can easily make a large batch of this and bake them one time and served fresh out of the oven.
What are the Ingredients for Cloud Egg
- Egg – 1 egg for each slice of bread. This is a single serving recipe, so only 1 egg. Simply multiply the ingredients for a larger batch.
- Sandwich Bread – You can use white or whole wheat sliced sandwich bread.
- Cheese – Totally optional, but breakfast with and egg cheese, nobody will complain with that. Cheddar cheese is best so it cooks up nicely and will leave a crunchy texture. Do not add too much as it could deflate the egg white with its weight.
- Salt & Peppers – A little goes a long way, so make sure to season it
- Dried or Fresh Herbs – totally optional but if you have any, use it as it adds nice extra flavor. I used dried Parsley.
- 1 Slice Bread
- 1 Egg
- 3 tablespoon grated Cheddar Cheese
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon Dried Parsley
- Whisk the Egg White. Separate the egg white and egg yolk. Whisk the egg white until fluffy. Add salt, dried parsley, black pepper and grated cheddar cheese. Gently fold careful not to deflate the egg white.
- Transfer in a parchment lined baking sheet. Transfer the egg white in a parchment paper. Create a acvity in the center deep enough to hold the egg yolk.
- Bake the whisked egg white at 450F for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and put the yolk in the center. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes.
