Eggs in a Cloud

 Eggs are wonderfully versatile and this recipe just proves the fact that it doesn't have to be difficult to be stunning (not to mention delicious). Ideal for those special mornings or a brunch with friends, it won't fail to impress.

Ingredients:4 eggs (room temperature)
                 4 pieces of whole grain toast
                 Sliced cheese
                 Chives to taste
                 Salt and pepper to taste
                 Pinch of cream of tartar

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Separate egg whites and cream of tartar until firm peaks are formed. Gently stir chives into the egg white mixture. Layer cheese onto toast. Spoon egg whites onto toast and form a hollow in the centre of each. Add egg yolk to the hollow. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve with favourite sauces and season with salt and pepper.

Note: Cream of tartar assists in forming stable egg whites, it isn't necessary so don't stress if you don't have any at hand.
