It is not often that Victor sees something and immediately says “OMG! I have to have this!”  so when he does say it, I tend to listen.

His cousin Kate had posted a picture of a prosciutto egg cup and he started drooling the moment he saw it. Time to get ::egg:: cracking!

The concept is actually very simple. It’s prosciutto, cheese, and an egg in a muffin tin and baked in the oven. Simple concept but extraordinary flavor!

Prosciutto Egg Cups

for each one you will need:

  • prosciutto
  • cheese
  • egg
  • salt and pepper
  • buttered toast slice
  • parsley, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Line each section with 1 slice prosciutto, making sure there are no holes. Add about 2 tbsp shredded cheese and then crack one egg atop.

Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, if desired, and place in oven about 12 minutes – and then rest for a couple more to allow them to set.

Place cooked egg cup atop buttered toast slice and sprinkle with parsley.


These really did rock the Casbah. And it’s the sort of dish you could easily make for a crowd. I used a pepper jack cheese this morning but absolutely anything would work – from ricotta to cream cheese, cheddar to mozzarella, or bits and pieces of whatever you have in the ‘fridge.

And considering the mess I usually make cooking breakfast, clean-up was a snap!

I see a lot more of these in our future…
