Eggs In Prosciutto Cups

Eggs In Prosciutto Cups

Recipe by Dragon

I made these eggs as a treat for my lazy Sunday morning breakfast. I served them with some tomatoes, cucumbers, buttered multigrain toast and a frothy cappuccino. It was a delicious way to start the day! All though, I think this breakfast would be great as a quick brunch or lunch or snack or early dinner or late dinner or midnight snack. : ) Enjoy!

Makes: 2

4 slices Prosciutto
4 eggs
1 teaspoon oregano, finely chopped
1 teaspoon shallot, very finely chopped
1 teaspoon butter, cold and cut into 4 pieces
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 tablespoons Gruyere cheese, shredded

1. Preheat oven to 375.

2. Line two large muffin cups with 2 slices each of Prosciutto. Make sure that the sides and bottoms are covered. Let the excess Prosciutto hang over the sides.

3. In each cup, crack 2 eggs. Top each egg with 1/2 of the oregano, shallot and butter.

4. Add a little salt and pepper and then top each egg with 1/2 the shredded gruyere cheese.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set but still runny and the Prosciutto is crispy.

6. To remove each cup from the muffin tin, use a small spatula to loosen the Prosciutto and transfer to a plate.

Eggs in Prosciutto Cups is an okay name, but you know what would be much better?

Piggy-Cups! These would be Piggy-Cups with Egg, but you could also have Piggy-Cups with stuffing, Piggy-Cups with Spuds, or Piggy-Cups with Beans!

I could go for one of those for breakfast this morning!

This looks great, I happen to have a big package of prosciutto in the fridge, so I'll be trying this soon.

I love this! I think I'm a sucker for all edible plate type contraptions--ice cream cones, soup in bread bowls, etc--but a pig-based bowl? I'm a very happy camper

That pic looks awesome. I can see the crispiness of the prosciutto just creep in and out. I love how your lazy breakfast blows my 'nice' breakfast away :)

That really does sound like a fantastic Sunday breakfast.

And I love these little "all in one" breakfast ideas. They make for great take-alongs during the week!

We had these for brunch this morning, atop a bed of mache. Yum! I love it when I can put together something pretty without rushing to the grocery store. Thanks for sharing!

That was heaven - and so easy! I bought prosciutto yesterday, and wanted to use it for brunch today, but hadn't decided what to do with it. What I really wanted was to be able to wrap it around an egg - but I figured that wasn't possible. Wrong! Now I know how.
