What the heck does keto mean?

Explaining the entire ketogenic diet in a paragraph is a tough one, but in a nutshell, it is a high-fat, low-carb eating plan that is designed to force the body into a state of ketosis. When in ketosis the body is in a metabolic state that burns fat for energy which is great for helping the body to heal.

Last June, when I unexpectedly had a seizure for the first time in 16 years my doctor suggested that I take a serious look into the keto diet. Ketosis has been used since the 1920’s as a technique to treat seizures and aids in helping the body and brain during the healing process. Admittedly, I struggled eating 100% keto during my healing journey, but I did start planning my daily meals around incorporating as many keto-friendly ingredients as I could. 

Bacon and eggs, one of my favorite flavor combinations on the planet, just happen to be keto-friendly so naturally there were a lot of meals that revolved around these two ingredients being on the plate. Sometimes, I ate them straight up as they are, sometimes I topped them with avocado, and when I was getting a bit bored of the traditional preparations I would break out my hand mixer and whip up a batch of fluffy cloud eggs! 

A baking sheet lined with parchment has 2 cloud eggs on it, one has a spatula underneath it. There are 2 glasses of juice on the table, a cream colored plate with bacon on it and a white plate sitting on top of a cloth napkin has a cloud egg on it as well.

What are cloud eggs?

“Cloud eggs” really is a great descriptive name for this recipe because the egg whites are whipped to stiff peaks before being folded with bacon pieces, lots of Parmesan cheese, and scallions. Once flavored to perfection the egg whites are mounded on to a sheet pan that has been lined with parchment and lightly sprayed with Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray. The whites bake by themselves for a few minutes until they start to turn golden around the edges then the yolks are carefully placed into the middle of the whites for the remainder of the cook time resulting in an egg dish that has fluffy tender whites and perfectly runny yolks. 

Whether you are in search of a new keto-friendly recipe to add to your arsenal or you’re just looking for one heck of a delicious way to serve breakfast I can guarantee you that these cloud eggs are for you!

Scale

Ingredients

Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray

4 large eggs, yolks and whites separated

1/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

1 scallion finely chopped

1 piece crispy bacon, chopped into small pieces

1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

ground black pepper to taste


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat with Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray.
  2. Separate the egg whites from the yolks, placing each yolk in an individual small bowl. Beat all of the egg whites and salt in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Gently fold Parmesan, scallions, and bacon pieces into the beaten whites with a rubber spatula. Make 4 mounds  of the egg mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Make a well in the middle of each mound with the back of a spoon.
  3. Bake the egg whites until they start to turn golden, about 3 minutes. Remove from the oven. If the well has filled in during baking, use the spoon to recreate it. Gently slip a yolk into each well. Bake until the yolks are cooked but still runny, 3 to 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with thyme and pepper. Season with salt to taste and serve immediately.
