How To Make Prosciutto Egg Cups

Add prosciutto to nonstick muffin baking pan (you can also give a quick blast with some nonstick cooking spray).

If you want extra crispy prosciutto, and a runny egg, you can pre-bake the prosciutto for 5-10 minutes before adding egg.

You can also pick other toppings to make your egg cups even more delicious:

  • Diced onions
  • Jalapenos
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Shredded cheese
  • Kale
  • Avocado
  • Sliced olives
  • Red pepper strips
  • Green chile

Mix and match different toppings – we love a little cheese on top, or some diced peppers!

Just be sure to watch the carb count for any toppings you might add.

How To Bake Prosciutto Egg Cups

Baking your egg cups is really as easy as adding eggs and vegetables into the folded prosciutto and popping into the oven.

To get a perfect egg, use our handy table to find the cook time best for you:

  • 8 minutes for a runny yolk
  • 12 minutes for a firmer yolk
  • 15+ minutes for a firm yolk

Once your eggs have baked, you can top them with cilantro, dill, chives, parsley, or other fresh diced herbs!

  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh diced dill to garnish


  • Lay prosciutto in lightly greased muffin tin, forming a cup like a muffin liner.
  • Add a few leaves of spinach into the bottom of the inside of the prosciutto cup.
  • Add one egg to each cup.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 375 for 8 minutes.
  • Check yolk – at 8 minutes the egg white should have set and the yolk should be still a little runny. Remove from oven to serve, or cook until yolk is set if you prefer it harder.
  • Garnish with fresh dill.
