Why you might ask…because you can switch that oven off and head to bed is the answer! The next morning you’ll awake to the foundation for whatever you might be intending to use your whipped and baked egg whites with and in today’s case, roasted strawberries are the answer!

Roasted strawberries have been a mainstay in my kitchen for over a decade and most often people I spoke to hadn’t even heard of roasting them…trust me…not only do they work incredibly well here, but they are such a fantastic way to prolong the life of these early summer fruit that you’ll wish you knew this trick earlier.

This summer it seems roasted strawberries are a way more popular option so if you have a surplus of them sitting in your fridge, well this is a great way to serve roasted strawberries.

How to prepare Meringues with Roasted Strawberries

  • Strawbs: Combine the ingredients for the strawberries, cover with aluminum foil and bake until fragrant.
  • Cool: Set the strawberries aside to cool fully (or even make ahead by a day).
  • Whip it: Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Sugar: Slowly add in the sugar and incorporate, repeating until all the sugar has been combined.
  • Shape: Place a quarter of the meringue onto a baking tray and shape. Continue with the remaining meringue.
  • Bake: Place in the oven and bake, ensuring the meringues don’t begin to color.
  • Oven off: Turn the oven off and leave the meringues inside until the oven has cooled completely.
  • Serve: Plate up the meringues, top with whipped cream and spoonfuls of the roasted strawberries and a little syrup. Dig in!

Tips for the best Meringues with Roasted Strawberries

Orange peel in the roasted strawberries: The acidity in oranges lends a perfect balance through the strawberries that can’t be found without a little peel. If you hate citrus you could absolutely leave it out, but maybe add 1/4 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar and stir through to cut through the sweetness of the strawberries.

Roasted strawberries: Roasted strawberries can be made ahead and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days, in fact, these are great served chilled on top of the meringues.

Meringues can be made ahead: Meringues can be made up to 3 days ahead and kept covered in a container.

Best served: Meringue, doesn’t have anything to keep that exterior firm once the topping is put on top so these are best served within 30 minutes of plating.
