First things first, I just have the state the obvious. These eggs are SO. PRETTY. That alone is a great reason to make them IMHO. It’s one of those recipes that looks like some major cooking skills are required, but in reality these are soooo easy. This is perfect for a relaxing weekend brunch. And from personal experience I know they pair well with mimosas. 😉👯😉👯
The lightness of the egg white with the salty bacon and parm and the creamy egg yolk is so good on its own, but you could probably serve with buttered toast if you wanted. We ate these without toast, and used the egg white to soak up the yolk. Holy yum.
With a total cooking time of six minutes, once you have the prep done this recipe is a breeze. And you can probably get this whole recipe prepped while the oven preheats. I think the most intimidating part of this recipe is getting the egg white fluffy – and that’s not hard at all, you’ll probably just have to pull out the hand mixer. Also, my eggs stuck to the wax paper a baby bit, but only because I’m a dummy and didn’t spray the paper with cooking spray beforehand. Even with a little sticking they still turned out pretty!
We had these on a sunny wintery Saturday morning, and I felt like we were on a European countryside somewhere eating a rustic, beautiful breakfast.
This is a great recipe if you’re into low carb/high protein eating. I feel like eggs are back after years of being told they were unhealthy – and I’m so happy about it. There are a lot of variations you could do with this recipe/concept as well as eggs in general. I’m definitely going to be exploring more fun things to do with eggs and egg whites.
