Prosciutto Egg Cups

 

 

I am always in search of new & creative breakfast ideas.  Sometimes you can just get so burnt out on the typical cold cereal or bacon & eggs kinda breakfast.  Last week, I was scouring the fridge for something to make for our ever so important first meal of the day, and all the usuals just didn’t seem so appetizing.
 
That’s when I saw it. The pack of prosciutto that I had reserved in the fridge for making Prosciutto & Caramelized Onion Pizza. Could I do something with prosciutto for breakfast?  
 
 

 

Light bulb moment!
 
I tucked the prosciutto inside of a muffin cup, & stuffed it with cheese & an egg.  It was such a hit! My husband quickly informed me that this one was definitely a ‘make again’.
