Egg Nests Recipe

- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cook time: 10 minutes
- Yield: Serves 2.

*1* Preheat the oven to 450°F with a rack in the middle. Line a roasting
pan, or baking sheet that can take high temperatures without warping, with
parchment paper or Silpat.

*2* Separate the egg yolks from the
Make sure there are no little pieces of egg yolk in the whites or you will
have difficulty getting the whites to beat properly. It helps if you are
making more than one egg nest to keep each egg yolk in a separate prep bowl.

*3* Place the egg whites in a very clean mixer bowl (any residual oil in
the mixer bowl will keep the egg whites from whipping up properly). Add an
eighth of a teaspoon of salt to the egg whites. Beat the egg whites with a
whisk attachment in a mixer (or using a hand mixer), starting on low speed
and then slowly increasing to high speed, until stiff peaks form.

*4* Gently fold in the grated Gruyere cheese, taking care not to deflate
the egg whites.

*5* Create two mounds of the egg white mixture on the lined baking sheet.
Form the mounds so they look like nests, with indentations in the centers.

*6* Place in the oven for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, open the oven, pull
out the rack with the egg white nests, and gently add an egg yolk to the
center of each nest. Return the baking sheet to the oven and cook for 3
more minutes.

Serve immediately.
