A friend introduced cloud bread to me many years ago and I have found ways to introduce it to my guests for brunch.

What is cloud bread and how do you make it?
In a nutshell, cloud bread is a type of “bread” that’s made strictly from eggs. First, whisk the egg whites with vinegar until stiff form.
Whisk together the egg yolks and cream cheese.
Scoop a couple spoonful of the egg mixture unto a baking dish. Bake for 12 minutes. Serve as a side for breakfast, brunch/lunch, and even dinner.
Quick tip: Once the mixture is complete, do not let the egg mixture sit, scoop it right away as it will become runny if it is left out too long. When I was first introduced to this bread I had no idea what I was doing, so it took me a few tries to get it correctly. After going through the process for the millionth time, I finally had success!
Despite not being head over heels with my first few attempts, I did tweak it along the way over the years. For example, instead of using cream cheese, I switched to something easier such as cream cheese spread because it helps enhance the flavor and texture. In my opinion, it is less heavy. The final texture of the cloud bread has a lighter consistency.
I also added a pinch of salt to balance out the flavor.
I used distilled white vinegar because it helps keep the eggs together.
It is paired perfectly with any main dish such as the Mixed Vegetable Mushroom Soup or the Healthy Butternut Squash Soup.
Savory Thoughts: Focus on the good. Start your day with a smile!
