Prosciutto Egg Cups

Prosciutto Egg Cups

This easy low-carb dish is perfect for breakfast or lunch, picnics, holiday brunch and the school/ work lunch box.  Carb lovers can accompany with some crusty bread.

Prosciutto egg cups


 ½ teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

12 slices (2 x 100g packs) thinly sliced prosciutto

2 egg tomatoes, sliced thickly

12 large eggs

1 cup (100g) grated cheese e.g. Swiss, Gruyere

Salt flakes & freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley


Preheat oven to 180’C.

Oil a 12 cup muffin pan, then ease a slice of prosciutto into each one, leaving 2cm above the pan edge. Ensure there are no holes where egg could seep through.

Place a slice of tomato inside the prosciutto, then a spoonful of shredded cheese into each cup, then crack an egg into each on top of the cheese. Season with salt and pepper, and then sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked as desired. Serve hot or cold.
