Prosciutto Egg Drops

Santana made these when we watched the Formula 1 race at their house a few weeks back and Ben got the recipe from her since we both enjoyed them so much.

They’re super easy to make and so far everyone I know who’s tried them can’t get enough.

We had leftover thyme from when we had Sierra and her family over for a BBQ so I decided to make a quick lunch/snack for Ben and I on Sunday.

You’ll need:

  • Olive oil to grease the pan
  • Muffin pan to cook in
  • Prosciutto (12 slices or ~6oz.)
  • Eggs (12 count)
  • Gruyère cheese (1 cup grated)
  • Heavy whipping cream (1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 365(F) degrees. Then start by lining the muffin pan with olive oil. For this batch I used half the amount of prosciutto (not as recommended because they don’t keep their shape as well nor have the eye appeal) to line the pan like a cupcake wrapper.

Then grab a tablespoon heaped with Gruyère cheese and drop into each cup. Crack an egg into each (without breaking the yolk) and then drizzle with roughly a tablespoon of heavy whipping cream. Top each cup with a sprinkle of thyme as well as salt and pepper.

Pop them into the oven for ~15 min or until set (adjust time depending on how you want the yolk cooked). Then take them out and let them cool. I haven’t had an issue letting them cool in the muffin pan but I’m sure a wire rack is optimal.

…super easy!

Imola GP 2022

Watching the formula 1 race while Tove takes her morning nap.

The rain is fitting as we had storms last night as well. Luckily no tornados 🌪 even though we bunkered down in the laundry room for a bit while we were under a watch warning.

What a frustrating season for Mercedes and Hamilton. Looks like it’s gonna be a seasonal fight between Leclerc and Verstappen…?
