Directions for: Paleo Prosciutto Egg Cups


⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil

6 large thin slices prosciutto (about 1/3 lb)

6 large eggs

½ medium tomato, cut into thin wedges

½ cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped

¼ cup toasted walnuts, chopped

¼ tsp red pepper flakes

1 small clove garlic, finely grated


1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400ºF.

2. Brush 6 standard muffin cups with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; the oil will pool on the bottom of the cups, but that's okay. Line each cup with a slice of prosciutto, folding and overlapping so that the entire surface of the cup is covered and no metal is peeking through. Crack 1 egg into each prosciutto cup and top each egg with a tomato wedge. Reserve the remaining tomato wedges for serving.

3. Bake until the egg whites are set and wobble only slightly, 8 to 10 minutes (the eggs will continue to cook after they come out). Let cool 5 minutes, then use an offset spatula to loosen the prosciutto from the edges of each cup and lift onto a plate for serving.

4. Mix the basil, walnuts, red pepper flakes and garlic with the remaining olive oil in a small bowl to combine. Serve over the egg cups and remaining tomato wedges.
