Cloud Eggs – And I thought Sunday mornings were for a lie-in. Aston had other ideas and woke me with a bowl of meringue he was whipping. Time to get up then Nannie!
2 egg whites
1 egg yolk
half a small onion chopped finely
100 gm pork mince
A tiny bit of black soy sauce
Half tbsp oyster sauce
Salt and black pepper to taste
Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl season with salt and black pepper, whisk until soft peaks.
Spoon onto a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray and make a hollow in the middle with a spoon.
Drop the egg yolk in the hollow.
Cook at 100C degrees for 7 mins.
Meanwhile, chop your onion finely and start to cook in a little olive oil add your minced pork and cook for about 3 mins or until cooked.
Add a little dark soy and your oyster sauce.
Taste and season with salt and black pepper.
Put on a plate and top with your cloud egg.
This was Aston’s recipe as he loves his meat so thought he would just do some mince and onions to go with the cloud egg, an experiment really as he is already thinking he will make some additions that next time, by adding Chilli and some green beans.
He has some imagination when it comes to food, but he is a 12-year-old with a passion to cook.
