Prosciutto Egg Boat; rock your morning breakfast with this quick and easy prosciutto egg boat, bursting in flavor, deliciously warming and crowd impressing!
Are you a Breakfast person? Like the kind who goes to bed dreaming of waking up to a delicious breakfast ? You know that famous quote by >the one and only< Julia Child; “People who love to eat are always the best people” ? I super agree with Julia, however I will refine the grains by affirming that breakfast people are even nicer!
No, seriously… I have’n met one dark soul that cheers for a warming breakfast. Those two definitely don’t go together! What I am saying is that, if you meet someone who looooooves breakfast as much as you do, STICK WITH HIM(her), as there is a 99% chance that things will go really well… blame the baker if it doesn’t whoooaa 🙂
Until then, you can stick with me! I am nice. Kind. Funny at times (although my kinds never laugh at my jokes, what-is-it-with-them??!!), and I can bake! well, except last week’s batch of apple cider donuts which went straight to my parents chickens… and I am pretty sure I heard my Mother say that the chickens looked at it and walked away. Awk… sassy little feathers!
However, when things go right, they look pretty darn good. Wouldn’t you say? Prosciutto may not always make things look at it’s best (I blame it to two failed attempts of photographing a fig and prosciutto pizza!) but I batcha’ it’ll always taste good.
Rock your breakfast with this quick and easy (and totally crowd impressing) prosciutto egg boat. A bite into this crunchy prosciutto shell softened by a warm and cheesy egg center, will surely leave you asking you for more. So bake a few extra prosciutto egg boats, to row your hunger away from shore 🙂
Not to defeat my every-day Farmer’s Market Countryside Breakfast, which by the way is really awesome… but this prosciutto egg boat, might be a up a notch. Either way, I will let you decide for yourself. One thing is for certain, you >>breakfast lover<<can always count on me to find the most delicious ideas to satisfy your morning tiger-like hunger! hint-hint… plan the night before. That 10-15 minutes you spend thinking about what to eat can be crucial sometimes 🙂 you could be eating instead of deciding.
