Eggs In Crispy Prosciutto Cups… what a scrumptious, easy and impressive breakfast!
This great breakfast recipe has become a quick favorite at StoneGable. Great for brunch and dinner too! 
I served this for company a couple of weeks ago and it was a huge hit!

Eggs In Crispy Prosciutto Cups
Makes 8 cups~ 4 servings
8 baguette rounds, toasted and lightly buttered
16 prosciutto rounds
8 large eggs
cracked pepper
1 cup extra sharp shredded cheese
roasted vegetables, chopped OR topping of choice
snipped chives for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Line regular muffin tin with 2 slices of prosciutto, making a cup.
Bake for 8 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and crack one raw egg into each cup. 
Pepper liberally.
Bake for 10 minutes, NO LONGER, until the white of the egg is firm  (egg will continue to cook when removed from the oven).

Top with 2 TBS cheese and let the egg rest for a 2 minutes.
Meanwhile put two toasted and buttered baguettes on each plate.
Run a knife around the inside of the muffin cup and gently lift out the prosciutto cup with a fork. Put a  prosciutto cup on each baguette.

I had leftover grilled vegetables from the dinner the night before, so I chopped them up and topped my eggs with them. A great sauce like hollandaise can be used as well. Get creative!
Garnish with snipped chives.

Eat at once!

    Your cups brought back memories of a favorite my mother used to make..Creamed tuna cups. She would take that super soft bread and put it in muffin tins to toast then the creamed tuna would go in and back in the oven..yum!

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway – If I win, perhaps some of your wonderful tablescape skills will rub off on me :)

    Now, on to your wonderful post – I’ve done prosciutto cups for a different recipe, and I baked them on the outside of an upside down muffin tin, which was kind of fun. I know the family would love your crispy egg cups!

    Those look delicious! I think I will have to try your recipe. I cook it with little difference. Added dairy milk chocolate and creams in middle after 30% baking. So delicious and testy dish.
