Prosciutto Egg Cups


Proscuitto Egg Cups by myheartbeets.comThese prosciutto egg cups are not only adorable and portable… they’re also practical. They take minutes to prepare and after a short time in the oven, you end up with a dozen egg cups. I eat 2-3 for breakfast along with a cup of masala chai so for me, this is about 4-6 days worth of breakfast.

In addition to running this blog, I also have a full-time marketing job. I’m always looking for breakfast-on-the-go and these salty, crispy prosciutto bowls do the trick. I love filling them with a spicy egg mixture and topping them with creamy goat cheese (chèvre), but if you’re pressed for time, you can always just break an egg into the prosciutto-lined muffin well. These little breakfast cups reheat beautifully.

These hand-held egg cups are also perfect for a weekend brunch. They taste as good as they look and you can make them the night before. I also suggest making these spaghetti squash breakfast cups and serving them both for some variety.
