About a year ago, I created a post called, “The Easiest Low Calorie Meal Plan for Weight Loss“. In it, I posted 30 days of ideas for each meal. Except, they were just ideas. I didn’t really have a “recipe” for everything on the list.

As a result, I get emailed from time to time from readers looking to find the recipes for the 30 days of meals. Which is why this Tasty Egg Cloud had to become an official recipe, despite it really only being one ingredient! haha!

70 calorie Tasty Egg Cloud Recipe!

What a great breakfast this was! These are whipped egg whites that are baked with a yolk on top. I also added some chopped ham, Parmesan, and cooked mushrooms, and it was so tasty!

It might seem complicated, but once you do it the first time, it’s super easy.

I did eat this on toast, but you don’t have to if you just need 70 calories and 5 grams of delicious protein!

To make tasty egg clouds:

I didn’t just make one egg cloud. I whipped up 6 egg whites because it seemed easier to whip when there is more in the bowl and it actually made 12 “clouds”. But since I only had 6 yolks, I just cooked and ate the rest of the clouds with the egg white only!! Such a QUICK and EASY “protein on the go” idea!

You can use a variety of toppings, but for the egg cloud in this photo, I used

  • ✔️6 egg whites
  • ✔️6 egg yolks
  • ✔️1/2 slice of ham, chopped
  • ✔️3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • ✔️3 tablespoons chopped and
  • ✔️sautéed mushrooms (I Sautee in cooking spray)
  • ✔️salt

I whipped the egg whites till stiff peaks formed. This is almost impossible with liquid egg whites! The kind in the carton takes me 15-20 minutes to get stiff peaks, but fresh eggs only 3 minutes! Use fresh eggs for this, because you need the yolks anyway.

Then, I spooned the stiff egg whites onto a baking sheet into circles, with a nest in the center for the yolk.

Then, add your toppings! I sprinkled chopped ham, cheese, and chopped mushrooms on top of clouds (or fold the toppings into the whites before scooping).

Then, I sprinkled with salt and baked them at 450, just for about 3-4 minutes.

I took the egg whites out of the oven, and added a yolk to the top of the cloud and sprinkled with a little more salt. And I returned them to the oven and cooked for about 5-6 more minutes.

Easy enough?? Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
