Glasgow food blog Cloud Egg Recipe Instructions Step 8

How do you like your eggs in the morning?

The latest Instagram food trend is for cloud eggs – no more smashed avocado and poached eggs or a fried egg placed neatly on a plate.  The cloud egg has arrived to Instagram and if you want to make them yourself here is how.

Cloud eggs were made for Instagram, dainty looking and they go with so many different foods – toast, muffins or just on their own with a bit of salad.  Tailor the eggs to your own taste, have them natural or with ham, cheese or for oomph add some chilli to your egg white.

Fancy trying the new craze at home? Follow this step-by-step guide to creating the perfect fluffy, cloud eggs.

1) Get your two eggs and two bowls.
