Cloud Eggs…Aston Style

And I thought Sunday mornings were for a lie in…Aston had other ideas and woke me with a bowl of meringue he was whipping… Time to get up then Nannie!

Cloud Eggs Aston style.

 

Serves One.

2 egg whites
1 egg yolk

half a small onion chopped finely
100 gm pork mince
A tiny bit of black soy sauce
Half tbsp oyster sauce
Salt and black pepper to taste
Let’s Cook!
Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl season with salt and black pepper..whisk until soft peaks.
Spoon onto a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray and make a hollow in the middle with a spoon. Drop the egg yolk in the hollow. Cook on 100 degrees for 7 mins.
Meanwhile, chop your onion finely and start to cook in a little olive oil add your minced pork and cook for about 3 mins or until cooked ..add a little dark soy and your oyster sauce…Taste and season with salt and black pepper.
Put on a plate and top with your cloud egg…

This was Aston’s recipe as he loves his meat so thought he would just do some mince and onions to go with the cloud egg..an experiment really as he is already thinking he will make some additions that next time…Chilli and some green beans…You could add some parmesan cheese to the egg whites or some finely chopped spring( green) onions and serve with bacon…

He has some imagination when it comes to food…But he is a 12-year-old with a passion to cook…

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

More and more of my blogging friends have joined me on MeWe…A social media site which is fairly new and which promises much without the restrictions some other social media sites are choosing to impose on many of us…Join me if you will on  mewe.com/i/caroltaylor3

The Culinary Alphabet …Letter C and not a chilli or a square of chocolate in sight!

Carol Cooks Letter C

The letter C in my journey through the culinary alphabet…I do hope you enjoy it I certainly am it is quite interesting especially now I know that Pork crackling something most of us love is number 6 in the top 100 of foods which are beneficial to your health…Lots of fat but good fat and plenty of vitamins ..so fill your boots… well not quite …Moderation is best but no need to go on a guilt trip it is ok to enjoy it now and again.
