October 20, 2016  Online Recipe Guide Avatar
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4-cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2-tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh or freeze-dried chives
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 2 to 4 tbsp peanut or corn oil
  • 1/2-cup sour cream
  • Black olive paste or salsa
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, flour, baking powder, and salt until well blended. Stir in scallions, chives, and Cheddar cheese.
  2. In a medium skillet, heat 1 1/2 tbsp oil over medium heat. Drop tablespoons of batter into hot oil without crowding and cook, turning once or twice, until both sides are golden brown, about 3 minutes total.
  3. Remove with a spatula and continue cooking tablespoons of remaining egg mixture, adding more oil as necessary. (If made in advance, refrigerate up to 2 days and reheat for 5 minutes in a 400 ºF oven).
  4. To serve, top each Cheddar Cloud with 1/2 tsp sour cream and a dab of black olive paste or salsa. Serve hot or at room temperature.
