Oriana Romero I love fried eggs, but I’ve never been of fan of the egg white when it comes out too soft. Searching for alternatives, I discovered a different way of cooking eggs and it has since become one of my favorite methods. They’re also made in the oven, not fried, so they’re the perfect option when you’re trying to cut calories. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with Jalapenos
  • Black pepper, to taste (optional)

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place rack right in the middle. Line a baking dish in parchment paper.
  • 2
    Separate the yolk from the egg white. Set the yolk aside.
  • 3
    Place the whites in a bowl and whip with a hand mixer at high speed until peaks begin to form. Add the salt and mix until combines.
  • 4
    Use a spatula to mix in the whites with the cheese. Use folding motions to prevent the whites from losing volume.
  • 5
    Place the whites in the baking dish. Carefully carve out a space in the center where you’ll place the yolk. Bake for 3 minutes. Open the oven and carefully place the yolk in the middle and bake for 3 more minutes.
  • 6
    Season with salt and pepper, if you like, and serve immediately.
