Ingredients

  • 4 British Lion Eggs separated
  • 25 g Parmesan finely grated, plus extra for garnish
  • 100 g Wafer thin ham finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp Chives plus extra to garnish
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 100 g Baby spinach slightly wilted
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC/Gas Mark 7. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.

  2. Whisk the egg whites with an electric whisk in a large, clean bowl with some seasoning until stiff.

  3. Using a large metal spoon, fold in the Parmesan, ham and chives. Place four mounds of egg whites onto the prepared baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon, create a slight dip in the middle of each.

  4. Bake for 3-4 minutes, then slide the egg yolk on top and bake for a further 3-4 minutes, until the egg whites are golden.

  5. While the eggs are baking, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat, then add the baby spinach and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until just starting to wilt.

  6. Serve the cloud eggs, scattered with extra chives and Parmesan cheese, with the wilted spinach
