This is what you need:
1 Slice of Prosciutto per Egg
1 Egg per Slice of Prosciutto
1/2 tbsp or 1/2 oz of any Cheese (goat or Parmesan is my favorite but cheese is optional)
This is what you do:
Coat a muffin tin with cooking spray and heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line each muffin tin with a slice of prosciutto and add a little cheese of your choice to bottom, if desired. Crack an egg in each cup and top with some pepper and chives. Cook for 13-15 minutes to get a soft, gooey yolk.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 13-15 minutes
1-2 Eggs per Serving
Now, take a slice of prosciutto and kind of fold it into each cup so it covers the whole cup. It does not have to be perfect. Make sure the little strip of fat on each prosciutto slice is on the top, not in the actual cup. This will allow the fat to cook off and become crispy.
Fat at the top.
Just line the cup as best as you can and press against the muffin tin to create the cup for the cheese and egg.
If you choose to add cheese or veggies or avocado, do so now. You really do not need to add a lot, so about a 1/2 tbsp is plenty. If I am having a Paleo day, I just do the prosciutto and the egg and it is delicious.
I did half goat cheese and half Parmesan today.
Next comes the egg. I crack it straight into the cup. If a yolk breaks, it is OK, it just won't be as runny. If you do not like runny eggs at all, you can crack all the eggs in a bowl and whisk together then fill each cup almost to the top. I then top with cracked pepper and chives. Salt is not needed because the prosciutto is salty enough on its own.
What broken yolk right in the middle cup?
Ready for the oven.
Cook for 13-15 minutes, depending on how runny you like your eggs and how hot your oven runs. Pull them out and right away take a butter knife around the outside of the prosciutto on each cup to loosen them. Then I use a fork and the knife to carefully remove them.
Serve immediately or place on platter so guests can help themselves. They are so simple, yet elegant and taste incredible. A perfect breakfast or brunch for one or for a big crowd with a big fruit salad or toast. You cannot go wrong with these.
Is this not the most perfect egg you have ever seen? Hope you enjoy them!
