Recipe: Baked Egg With Prosciutto and Tomato

It can be challenging to give eggs enough of an elegant twist to serve them to company, especially when the company arrives en masse, as tends to happen during the holidays.

Enter the baked egg, at 15 minutes or so perhaps the slowest common cooking method (yes, I know, you can cook eggs for five hours if you choose to do so). But this is in a way the easiest method for cooking eggs in quantity.

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Smear a bit of butter or oil in ramekin; line with 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 and pepper and serve.

TIP: Sprinkle with Parmesan if you like.
