Egg On A Cloud
As featured in "Chef Magazine"

6 eggs - carefully separated
6 rounds of 7 grain bread
hollandaise sauce

Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut 4 rounds from bread and place on non-stick baking sheet. Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Divide egg whites over rounds in mounds, and with the back of a spoon, form a hollow in the center (top) of each. Place yolk of egg in the hollow. Bake in oven, being careful not to over cook, until yolk is set and white is lightly browned (about 10 to15 minutes). Yolk needs to be firm enough to be easily removed if requested by guest. This is part of the uniqueness of this dish. Remove from oven and place on serving dish. Drizzle Hollandaise sauce over the top and add a dash of paprika and chopped parsley.

We often serve this elegant egg dish with a breakfast or vegetarian meat. Serves 6. (When I prepare the hollandaise sauce, I use orange juice instead of lemon juice.) And garnish the dish with orange slices.

9 large eggs, separated
9 tablespoons sugar
9 egg yolks
1/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup orange juice

2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons sugar

In a 10 to 12-inch oval baking dish melt 6 tablespoons of butter. Add 1/2 cup of orange juice and 2 tablespoons of sugar, remove from heat when bubbly. Gently slide large spoonfuls of egg mixture into the hot sauce. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 13 to 15 minutes, until the center jiggles only slightly.

Nutty Orange Easter Souffle

6 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) sugar
3/4 cup (180 ml) ground cashews
Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
1 1/2 cups (375 ml) walnuts, chopped
Oil and flour* for the cake pan

* Matzo meal may be substituted for a kosher Passover version

Combine the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and beat until fluffy and pale yellow. Add the cashews, orange zest and juice, and walnuts, mixing until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks and fold into the nut mixture. Oil a 9 inch (23 cm) spring form pan (non-stick if possible) and dust with flour. Pour in the batter and bake in a preheated 350F (180C) oven for 1+1/2 hours, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Strawberries Souffle

1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
4 drops vanilla extract
2 cups milk
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 egg whites
1 pinch salt
1 cup cubed sponge cake
6 fresh strawberries
6 mint leaves

Place the frozen strawberries in a pot with the water, 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 drops of vanilla extract. Bring to a high boil. Turn off heat and cover with a lid. In the meantime, bring the milk to a simmer with 2 drops of vanilla extract. Place the egg yolks in a bowl, add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and whisk well until it becomes pale in color, then add the sifted flour and cornstarch. Pour the hot milk over the egg mixture slowly to temper, then place everything back in the pot. Cook on medium heat while mixing until it thickens. Transfer to another bowl and cover with a plastic film, let cool.

When the strawberries are thawed and slightly melted, remove the lid from the pot, put the flame on high and cook off the water until it becomes a thick puree, reserve and let cool.
When they are both cooled, mix the pastry cream and the strawberry puree together.

Prepare the souffle mold by buttering the inside and then coating with sugar. Make sure not to touch the inside once it's coated with sugar or the souffle batter will stick. Set aside until needed.

Place the egg whites in a bowl, add a small pinch of salt and beat up until it gets fluffy and white, add half the sugar. Whisk until it becomes very stiff but not too stiff and grainy. Add the remaining sugar and mix well. Fold the egg whites in a white pastry cream mixture delicately until well incorporated.

Place half the souffle batter in the buttered/sugared oven-proof dish, then the cubed sponge cakes and finish with the remaining souffle batter on top. Place the whole dish in another oven-proof pan filled with hot water (this is called the bain-marie cooking method).

Place in a preheated 400 degree oven and cook until the souffle rises and its top becomes slightly brown (approximately 10 to 15 minutes. The inside should still be slightly undercooked.) Remove and serve immediately. Decorate with fresh strawberries and a mint leaf. It is a good idea to serve with a strawberry or a vanilla sauce.
