Prosciutto Egg Cups Recipe

Bake eggs with ham and cheese for a superior start

I understand the appeal of something like eggs benedict. It's composed of delicious, individually portioned and aesthetically pleasing eggs on English muffins with cheese and sauce and ham. What could go wrong? But transforming prosciutto or any other sliced pig you have handy into your own personal egg-holders is far more special than yolk getting into the nooks and crannies.

Add a dollop of pesto or some super-easy homemade roasted red pepper strips for an impressive presentation, and prepare to have one of the most attractive brunches of your life. Cook up some home fries as a side, and you're about to kick this day's ass.
