Prosciutto Cups

By Gabby

The crunch of the prosciutto and buttery yolk of the eggs make this a great Sunday morning brunch item.

Prosciutto Cups
  • Olive oil cooking spray

  • 6 thin slices prosciutto cut in half (or thin slices of bacon)

  • 12 large eggs at room temperature

  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12 cup non-stick muffin tin generously with cooking spray. Not just in the cup, but up the sides and over the edge a little.

  2. Lay 1 slice of prosciutto or bacon around the edge of 6 muffin tins. It can hang over the edges a little. Take each egg and gently crack it into the prosciutto lined bowl. Sprinkle with a dash of pepper on top.

  3. Bake in your hot oven, rotating the pan half way though cooking until your eggs are cooked to a desired set. For a soft yolk, 10-15 minutes. For a hard yolk, 15-18 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing with a butter knife. Serve warm with your choice of garnish.

I made them again this morning. The family really likes them. I had some left over (very long ago left over) waffle fries in the freezer. I used those, chopped them up and they worked great as well.

The nutrition numbers don't show sodium content. Using prosciutto, the sodium level has to be enormous. Flavor of these "bowls" is probably pretty good. I love prosciutto, but if you have a heart condition, you may want to use something with less salt. Plus salt just make you retain water thus increasing your weight.

These also reheat quite nicely. I made only 6 for the family and had two left over. They were so yummy, even the day after. If you don't use prosciutto often, just buy 6 slices from your deli. It's much cheaper than purchasing a package of it.
