  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  4. Turn on the mixer to medium to high speed and mix until stiff peaks form. 
  5. Add in the black pepper. 
  6. Once mixed, add in the chopped ham, mozzarella, and chives. 
  7. Lightly fold the mixture until combined. 
  8. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop some mixture onto the cookie sheet. 
  9. Using the back of a spoon, make a small cavity in the middle for the yolk. 
  10. Place into the oven for 3 minutes. 
  11. Pull out and lightly place a yolk into each of the egg clouds. 
  12. Place back into the oven for 2 minutes. Once done, pull out and serve as soon as possible.
