These cute little crispy prosciutto cups make for an impressive and compact breakfast presentation.
Underneath the egg, you can place any filling you would like, or none at all. I’ve given you several examples of things you might like to add to your cups; such as roasted veggies, pesto, salsa, purchased or homemade giardinera, or simple tomato slices.
You’ll need two muffin tins of the exact same size. The reason you need two tins is so that one can sit directly on top of the other once it is lined with the prosciutto. Doing so, prevents the prosciutto from curling up and shrinking while it is baking in the oven.
The cup in the photo above was done correctly, the cups in the photo below were not. See the difference? Since the curled up prosciutto cups were too small to hold an egg, I piled one scrambled egg into two cups that I had lined with tomato slices.
This recipe makes six, but can easily be doubled if you have a crowd to feed and happen to have two matching 12-cup muffin tins.
