Cloud Breakfast Eggs

Cloud Breakfast Eggs are the perfect way to start the weekend. Soft fluffy whites with a runny yolk in the center, ready in 10 minutes

My Mum always taught me the importance of a good breakfast, infact she’s been known to make it a multiple course affair. An extra special effort was always made before a big school day, like an exam or school trip, just to make sure we were on top form.
One breakfast I remember in particular was before I left on a school trip to a residential activity centre. It was going to be the longest I’d spent away from my family and I was a bundle of nervous excitement. With my bags packed, my Mum made sure I had eaten a really good breakfast before I left on the adventure. I guess it was the last thing she could do for me before I got on the bus.
That’s what this recipe is made for really, to feed your kids up on those very important days and send them away with a breakfast they’ll love. Plus it only takes ten minutes.
