Food and Home

This is the perfect breakfast in bed spoil, or a tasty brunch over a lazy weekend.

Parmesan baked eggs with crispy prosciutto.


250ml (1 cup) fresh cream
50g Parmesan, finely grated
2,5ml (½ tsp) salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4 – 8 eggs
8 slices prosciutto
Toast, to serve
Micro herbs, to garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and grease 4 ramekins with butter.

2. Whisk together the cream, Parmesan, salt and pepper in a measuring jug.

3. Break the eggs into the ramekins (you can use 1 or 2 eggs, depending on the size of your ramekins). Pour over a little of the cream mixture.

4. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven until the eggs are cooked and golden brown, 7 – 10 minutes.

5. Place the prosciutto on a non-stick baking sheet and cook in the oven until crisp.

6. Remove the eggs from the oven and serve with the crispy prosciutto and toast, garnished with micro herbs.
