Healthy Baked Meringues


I know. There hasn't really been a really awesome, blow-your-socks-off dinner recipe in a while. One (or two) are coming - promise. Your socks won't know what hit them!

Until then we'll have to fend off hunger with these Healthy Baked Meringues. Now some might get all righteous when they realize these are just whipped egg whites and nothing more and cry foul because they don't include anything else in a normal meringue. But to them I say "So?" Come on, we're trying to be healthy here! Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it too, but maybe this isn't one of those times for said foul-criers.

Oh, and use the egg yolks to make a decent little Healthy Zabaione. So please enjoy these little treats after the jump...if you dare.


1-2 egg whites


Whip the heck out of those egg whites. Seriously. Whip it. Whip it good. (I recommend an electric mixer because my arm was dying after only 5 minutes of frothing, and it took a good 20 or so to finish.)

Spoon out 1 or 2 on a lined baking sheet and bake for 5-10 minutes. I would watch them though as they will burn if left in there too long.

Enjoy immediately. Otherwise, they kinda deflate a tad. Tastes good, yet loses its coolness factor.
