Cloud Eggs & Ham

Cloud Eggs & Ham

The cloud-like egg whites are light and airy, while the ham is more substantial and slightly crispy around the edges, providing a textural contrast. It is a balance of flavors, with the eggs contributing a mild and airy quality, while the ham adds a savory, salty note, making it a delightful and satisfying breakfast or brunch option. 

Great for leftovers from a whole ham, or deli ham that you need to quick use! Cut up and use as you see fit.

8-10 large
Grated parmesan
1 cup
Kosher salt and cracked pepper
Chopped chives for garnish


  • Large baking sheet
  • Cooking spray
  • Whisk or hand mixer or fork


Start by preheating your oven to 450 F degrees and preparing your large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Crack eggs and separate the eggs whites from the yolk into two separate bowls. Use a whisk, hand mixer, or fork to beat eggs until stiff peaks form, around 3 to 5 minutes.

Fold in parmesan cheese and ham, seasoning with salt and pepper. 

Spoon egg whites on to the greased baking sheet and indent the centers to form a ‘nest’ like shape.

Bake until the nests are lightly golden, around 3 to 5 minutes. 

Carefully spoon the egg yolk into the center of each “nests", and season again with salt and pepper.

Baking until yolks are just set, around 3 to 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped chives or fresh herbs and enjoy!
