  • 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
  • Separate whites and yolks, placing yolks in individual small mixing bowls
  • In a clean bowl beat egg whites and salt on low until they start to form and then increase speed until peaks are stiff
  • Fold in the shredded coconut (or cheese) gently mixing by hand
  • Shape the egg whites into egg nests on your lined baking sheet
  • Sprinkle with any seasonings you would like
  • Place the egg nests in the oven for 3 minutes, pull them out and then add a yolk into the center of each egg nest
  • Place back in the oven and bake for 3-5 more minutes or until the yolk is cooked to your liking
  • Serve and enjoy


Make sure your bowl is clean, any oil or residue in your bowl will stop your egg whites from forming like you need
