Recipe For The Perfect Fluffy Eggs

Head straight on to the recipe for Fluffy Eggs ♥

Fluffy eggs is what I called these eggs in meringue clouds as the whites were all fluffed up. I like my egg yolks to be runny but if you prefer yours hard then keep them in the oven a little longer. Enjoy on the weekend when you have time to bake.

Do you ever have one of those days when you sit down at your desk, ready to start your work and one thing goes wrong? And with that, your routine flies out of the window and you just cannot get into the swing of things? This happens to me on a regular basis. I am not sure what it is about routine that works for me but I just seem to be a happier person when my day starts off and continues in the way I am used to. My week day mornings begin with coffee in bed while I read blogs, followed by getting ready for work and then getting to work. At the office I start off with clearing my emails and then replying to blog comments. This should all be done by 8am and then I get stuck into the things that pay the bills. I get the driver sorted out and ready for his day, make sure the sales side of the business is running smoothly and then I get to the papers on my desk. Once this is done I can write a blog post, edit photographs and see what is happening on Facebook. It was while reading a blog post one morning that I saw a recipe for eggs in meringue clouds on We Are Not Martha, and decided to break with my weekend breakfast routine and make these for myself while Dave was away. It is quite strange taking eggs apart and putting them back together, but really fun to do. I posted a photograph on Instagram and only then remembered I had not typed the recipe up, or taken camera pictures. So, I made them again for both of us one weekend and Dave really enjoyed them. Do you have a routine you like to stick to?

  1. These look like fun. I would never have thought of them. We are sticklers for routine during the week because me work for someone else. Weekends are a more relaxed affair with Saturday mornings spent doing a bit of this and that and typically, ‘jobs’ on Sat afternoon. I really depends on what’s in the calendar. Roll on the time when we are ‘working for ourselves’!

  2. I love fluffy eggs and your breakfast looks smashing for a weekend! You’re right, I love taking my time on weekends and delivering a really scrumptious meal. And eggs are huuuuggge at our house. Not to mention bacon which makes the world go round. Excited about this! Have a great week!

  3. I am very much a routine person when it comes to work and home. However, I love to be spontaneous when all the work is done. The fluffy eggs look pretty & yummy.

  4. I am also a creature of routine- if things don’t go as planned I just don’t seem to feel as good the rest of the day. These eggs look absolutely scrumptious!
