Scrambled Parmesan Eggs and Prosciutto

May 13, 2016

While out to brunch in New York City recently, I saw something on the menu that sounded unbelievably delicious. I got pretty hyped up about it until I saw that the restaurant was charging $20+ for the dish, which was just way more than I was willing to spend.

Instead, I decided that I was going to make it at home for myself at a way cheaper price. I even bought my prosciutto freshly sliced at Whole Foods and it was still way cheaper and was enough for multiple servings!

And so that’s how my new Sunday morning favorite was born–my Scrambled Parmesan Eggs and Prosciutto.

On a side not, I’m not sure how efficient you guys are in the kitchen but I can’t seem to figure out how to make an omelet… It always just turns into scrambled eggs once I attempt to flip it! I’ll get it down someday.

This recipe makes one serving but it’s super easy to make more (obviously, this is me we’re talking about). I love making eggs after a morning workout, especially since I usually don’t eat enough protein unless I go out of my way to eat more #carblover

INGREDIENTS:

2 slices of sourdoughย bread

2 large eggs

Butter

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Prosciutto (I used two slices of prosciutto since I find it a little too rich if I eat anymore at one time)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Set your stovetop to medium-high heat and heat up your frying pan. Once hot, melt butter and then add whisked eggs and cook until yellow and fluffy.
  • While the eggs are cooking, slice your bread and toast until a gold brown color. You can either butter toast, like I did, or you can drizzle with olive/truffle oil if you’re feeling more ambitious.
  • Place eggs on top of toast, and then the prosciutto on top of that. Feel free to sprinkle on as much parmesan cheese as your heart desires. I’m a big cheese fan so I probably took that too much to heart.

And that’s it! Simple but gourmet enough to impress friends or just make yourself proud for not eating cereal for breakfast again.

    • I used to not really like eggs when I was younger but I started to eat them a lot in college because they were so cheap haha

  • Seriously, some of these spots in the city are just SO over priced, it’s ridiculous! Glad you were able to make it yourself, it looks real delicious! My husband, who is the omelet king, taught me a couple of tricks for making an omelet. After the oil is hot, cook your veggies until soft and evenly disperse them in a small pan. Then, pour the eggs on top covering the entire surface of the pan and cook on medium for about 3 minutes, then take a spatula and peel forward the sides of the egg to make sure it’s not stuck. Gently place the spatula towards the center of the omelet, holding the pan with your other hand off the fire and flip, cooking on the other side for about 1 minute. I used to get so pissed because mine would turn into scramble eggs too and then he showed me how to do it and has worked ever since, I hope it helps! Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe with us and I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, beauty!

    • Thanks for the tip!! My boyfriend can make omelets with complete ease but then when I try it always ends in disaster (or just scrambled eggs lol). I’ll have to try it the way y’all make them!

  • Umm YUM!!! I am not even a big fan of prosciutto {I know, I know, don’t judge} but this looks amazing! And I don’t blame you – $20 for a breakfast entree is absurd! Smart to DIY!

    • I couldn’t believe how expensive the dish was, especially since I’d had my heart set on it as soon as I saw someone else eat it. I like to think that my own recipe is just as delicious though!

  • Making a good omelette is actually quite a challenge but it looks like you’ve succeeded with this one! Happy Sunday, Courtney

    • Thanks! And omelets are so tough to make half of the time!

  • Raindrops of Sapphire

    I could eat that right about now! I’m thinking eggs and bacon will be delicious! As I’m not a fan of parma ham, it’s a bit too rubbery for me, so I’d switch to bacon!

    • I’m a huge fan of bacon too (I actually ate it this morning haha), so I would definitely try that switch too!

  • You are looking so chic, nice outfit!

  • This looks so good, I have to try it out! And I’m right there with you girl, I can’t figure out how to make an omelette to savvy life!

    • One day I’ll figure out how to properly make an omelet (probably by watching YouTube videos). Until then I’ll be happy with my scrambled eggs!

  • I shouldn’t be shocked by how expensive restaurants can be nowadays but there’s always at least one price that just blows me away!
