Prosciutto-Wrapped Baked Eggs With Asparagus

Prosciutto-Wrapped Baked Eggs With Asparagus

Baked eggs recipe provided by Ryan Carter, Live Vitae

I enjoy bacon and eggs, but some days, I like to take my breakfast up a notch. This creative take on classic bacon and eggs turns them into delicate and elegant nests, baked together in a muffin tin. It’s an easy egg recipe that looks more complicated than it really is.

The prosciutto creates a lovely salty and sophisticated crispness to the eggs. When baking eggs in the oven, keep a close eye on them as they can quickly overcook. You want them just set to keep all the nutrition intact.

These baked eggs can also be made in batches and used when short on time in the morning, or as a protein and fat snack. I enjoy them with asparagus, which is my favorite vegetable with eggs. They are lightly steamed and glazed with butter.
