Baked Eggs with Prosciutto and Gruyere

This is a great idea for breakfast (or brunch), easy and very tasty! Pictures and recipe are by: Two Tarts.

Prosciutto is draped over a ramekin, topped with an egg, drizzled with a few tablespoons of cream, and sprinkled with cheese. Bake for just 10 to 12 minutes and you have something so good, you can't believe you spent that little time preparing it.


Baked Eggs with Prosciutto and Gruyere

4 to 8 slices prosciutto
4 large eggs
4 tablespoons cream
1/4 cup grated gruyere
freshly ground back pepper

1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line 4 ramekins with prosciutto so the bottom and sides are almost completely covered. Crack an egg into each prepared ramekin. Drizzle 1 tablespoon cream on top of each egg and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cheese. Season with pepper.

2. Place ramekins into the center of oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolk is done to the desired firmness. (Sarah likes hers completely hard, so she let hers go a few minutes longer.) The eggs will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven, so underbake them slightly. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
