  • 12 slices Prosciutto di Parma
  • 1 cup grated cheese of choice
  • 6 large eggs
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Lightly grease a 9-serving cupcake pan and place 1-2 slices of Prosciutto di Parma in each ‘cup’ to make sure the bottom is covered.

Fill the Prosciutto di Parma cup with grated cheese. Crack one egg in each cup on top of cheese. Add freshly cracked black pepper, to taste and bake until eggs are cooked and prosciutto becomes slightly crisp on edges.
