A Delicious Bacon & Cheese Cloud Eggs Recipe
Have you seen Cloud Eggs on social media and wondered how to make these delicious fluffy breakfast treats?
This version is a delicious combo of bacon and cheese, but they are customizable based on your favorites!
What are Cloud Eggs?
Cloud eggs are an egg that has been separated, and the egg whites whipped until light and fluffy. The egg whites are scooped in mounds onto a baking tray, and then the egg yolk is gently replaced into the egg white “cloud”.
Then, the cloud eggs are baked until the whites are cooked and the egg yolks are soft and runny.
This recipe includes bacon and cheddar cheese, and are garnished with green onions. You could also use precooked breakfast sausage, or keep them vegetarian by omitting the meat or using chopped and cooked peppers or broccoli.
However you decide to flavor your cloud eggs, it’s a breakfast you’re sure to enjoy!
The light and fluffy whipped egg whites have an airy texture, and the addition of the cheese and bacon makes these an omelet-style meal. Kids and guests will love this simple egg dish!
I baked this Cloud Eggs recipe in my Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-In Wall Oven. This luxury oven bakes with a combination of superheated steam and convection, restaurant-quality results at home.
It’s easy to cook eggs for a crowd using the steam oven.

How to Make Cloud Eggs
Step 1: Separate the egg whites from the yolks, being careful to keep the egg yolks whole and in half a shell so you can easily use them later.
Step 2: Using a hand or stand mixer, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Step 3: Next, gently fold the shredded cheese and bacon into the egg whites, careful not to deflate the whites.
Step 4: Scoop the egg whites into fluffy mounds on a baking tray.
Step 5: Use a spoon to create a divot in each egg white “cloud” and then place an egg yolk in the center of each one.
Step 6: Bake the Cloud Eggs in the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-In Wall Oven for 8 minutes.
If you do not have a steam oven, preheat a regular oven to 425º F and bake for 10 minutes.
Variations on Cloud Eggs
If bacon and cheddar isn’t your thing, or you don’t have them on hand, try:
Plain Cloud Eggs: You can omit the mix ins, and just use the fluffy egg whites with the yolk centers. Season with salt and pepper, and garnish with fresh chopped herbs.
Vegetarian Cloud Eggs: Omit the bacon, and use sauteed onions, peppers, or broccoli in place of it. Use any type of shredded cheese you enjoy.
Mix up the Cheese: Try your favorite cheese here, or whatever you have on hand. Havarti, pepper jack, or Swiss are great options in eggs!
Try Different Breakfast Meats: If you don’t have bacon on hand, try chopped ham, Canadian bacon, or cooked breakfast sausage.
