What Are Cloud Eggs?
Separate the whites from the yolk and whip the egg whites to look like fluffy clouds. Use the special cooking technique to create a great tasting healthy egg!!
Griddle Temp for Eggs
When making cloud eggs use the lowest setting on your gas griddle. Preheat the griddle for 3-5 minutes before cooking your eggs.
Don’t use any wind guards when cooking these griddle cloud eggs because the flat top will get too hot. If cooking other types of eggs on the griddle then set the burners to the medium setting.
How To Cook Eggs On A Blackstone Griddle
Three differences when cooking cloud eggs and regular eggs on a Blackstone Griddle.
- Use parchment paper when cooking the egg clouds. This helps prevent sticking and over cooking the bottoms of the fluffy egg whites.
- Another difference is the cooking temperature of a cloud egg and regular eggs. Regular eggs need to be cooked on medium temperature where egg clouds get cooked on low temperature but is covered with a dome to create on oven effect.
- When cooking regular eggs on a griddle, you want to use some sort of fat such as oil or butter on the flat top, but fluffy eggs should be cooked on parchment paper with no oil or butter.
How To Make Cloud Eggs
Gather your ingredients. Preheat the griddle on the lowest setting.
Separate the egg white from the yolk.
With a hand whip, beat the egg white for about 90 seconds to a stiff peak. Do not over mix!
On a preheated griddle place a sheet of parchment paper to flat top. Scoop all the fluffy egg white onto the parchment paper in a mound.
Next, make a slight hole in the center of the whites to make a nest shape.
Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and seasoning to the top of the white.
Cover with a dome and cook for 2 minutes.
Uncover and place the egg yolk into the center of the fluffy egg white. Replace the dome cover and cook for 2 more minutes.
