Baked Egg With Prosciutto, Asparagus and Tomato

This baked egg recipe was so enjoyable and really easy to make. What’s great about this recipe is that you can change it up. I’ve made it with spinach, chopped ham and small diced potatoes before and it was equally delicious. It takes a few minutes to put it together and only about 12 minutes to cook. The eggs come out perfect and are always good served with a sprinkle of parmesan and two Vita Vigor breadsticks.

     These are the layers of this easy and delicious dish

Cooking spray

1 slice tomato

1 generous slice prosciutto

1 small stalk asparagus, cooked

1 egg

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pasmesan cheese

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Coat the ramekin with cooking spray; line with asparagus stalk, tomato and prosciutto. Break egg into ramekin, then put on a baking sheet.

2. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until egg is set and white has solidified. Because the cup retains heat, egg will continue to cook after you remove it from the oven, so it is best to undercook it slightly. Precise time, in a good oven on a middle rack, is 12 minutes. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, Parmesan and serve. Yield: 1 serving.

Bon Appetit!
