Ingredients for Cloud Eggs
Directions for Cloud eggs and Mermaid toast
first… Could Eggs!
Preheat oven to 350 F. Separate white and yolk of eggs and place each yolk into a separate glass or bowl. Place all whites into a large bowl with some salt and whip with a cake beater until stiff peaks form. Place bu spoonfuls on cookie sheet prepared with parchment and sprayed with cooking spray. (number of lumps of egg white should equal number of eggs used) and place a well in the middle. Bake 6 minutes and remove from oven. Place a yolk in each well and put back in the oven for 4 minutes. Et Voila – could eggs.
My son Leo said it was like eating a marshmallow but not sweet. Good but weird really.

Directions for Mermaid Toast
This one is easy. Make toast. Smear with cream cheese. Sprinkle with spirulina and chlorophyll and swirl around so it looks pretty – then eat – On one of mine pictured I added a drop of blue food colouring for fun for Leo – yep, Leo ate it and he actually liked it!
Give it a shot – it does require a shopping trip to a health food store or Whole Foods…
Hope you have as much fun with this as I am having!
