A few years ago I was looking to cut carbs from my diet and came across something called cloud bread. At the time we didn’t have chickens and I quickly faded away from the cloud bread and back to my delicious homemade bread. Now due to dietary issues in the family, I have started to make it again and I’m enjoying it more now. We all are.

What you need:

  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning – optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder – optional

How to Make Cloud Bread

You can make this with a hand mixer. BUT, it is hard on the hands. I completely recommend using a stand mixer if you have one. Beating those egg whites until they form stiff peaks is not for the weak. A stand mixer makes it so that you can easily make this cloud bread and not dread doing it.

Make sure to preheat your oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper to have it ready to go.

Separate your egg whites and yolks into separate bowls, placing the egg whites into your stand mixer bowl with the whisk attachment. Add cream of tartar and beat on high until it turns into a firm meringue. You can stop whipping it when you can form peaks.

Move into a new bowl.

In your mixer bowl beat the cream cheese until it has softened. Then add your egg yolks one at a time mixing them well before adding the nest. Scrape the sides down.

Add in seasonings. These are completely optional. I love them for egg sandwiches, but my girls prefer them without seasonings.

Gently fold the meringue into your yolk and cream cheese mixture trying not to deflate the meringue as much as possible. You want them to stay light and fluffy.

Scoop 1/4 cup portions onto the parchment paper.

Bake for 20-30 minutes. They will be golden and firm in the center.

Can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container, though they are best on the day they are made.
