Magical Carb-Free “Cloud Bread” Is The Star Of The Season


Carb-free bread, is it really possible? This has to be an internet hoax, right? Ok, but the “cloud bread” you might’ve heard about lately is for real.  They are gluten-free and can emulate the look of hamburger buns without loading on the extra carbs. Are you intrigued….I was…..still sound too good to be true?  Ok, so, it’s not actual bread, but it might be the next best substitute when you’re craving a burger, avocado sandwich, or basically anything you enjoy eating that might include the use of bread.







Here’s what you’ll need:


* 3 eggs, separated

* ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar

* 3 tablespoons softened cream cheese or Greek yogurt


Here’s What you’ll do:

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C.
  2. Separate the eggs into two bowls.
  3. Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and whip into stiff peaks.
  4. Add the cream cheese or yogurt into the yolks and mix until combined.
  5. Fold half of the egg whites into the yolks until just combined. Add the rest and fold again until incorporated.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place six dollops of the mixture on the tray (about ½ cup each).
  7. Spread out the circles with a spatula to about ½ inch thick.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
  9. Allow to cool for at least 1 hour.
  10. Enjoy with your favorite toppings!




Are we talking the next big thing in IT, no – in fact we are talking about a fancy puffy food that involves an egg white, with the yolk served in the center.  In fact, it’s essentially taken from a dish called “Eggs in Snow,” which the French have been making for centuries, as a matter of fact since 1651. The dish has also become popular with health fanatics, as it only counts as approximately 161 calories.  Instagram has become a breeding ground for brightly-colored and often questionable food trends like Unicorn Toast, but this one seems less picturesque and more based in tradition.







Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 large eggs
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 lb. deli ham, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. finely chopped fresh chives, for garnish

Here’s What you’ll do:

  1. Preheat oven to 450° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Separate egg whites and egg yolks, placing the egg whites in a large bowl and the yolks in a small bowl.
  3. Season the egg whites with salt and pepper. Using a whisk or a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in Parmesan, ham, and chives. Create 4 mounds of egg whites on the prepared baking sheet and indent the centers of each to look like nests. Bake until slightly golden, about 3 minutes.
  4. Carefully add an egg yolk to the center of each egg white cloud. Season yolk with salt and pepper. Bake until the yolks are just set, about 3 minutes more.
  5. When cooked, the eggs should look like clouds with a sunny center.
