Truffle Baked Eggs with Prosciutto

Stick with me here. I’m all about decadent breakfasts, and these truffle baked eggs with prosciutto hit the mark square on the nose. They are rich, creamy and full of so much truffle goodness that you may just fall over. Not only that, I joined forces with Eggland’s Best to create this wonderful dish! We love Eggland’s best for many reasons, but the most important to my littles is the fact that the red “EB” comes on each and every egg that is in the carton. 

Truffle Baked Eggs with Prosciutto

To create this delicious meal, I used a few staples and of course some luxury items. All were on hand believe it or not, because I’m in a truffle phase of my cooking life. I had shaved truffles on hand that I picked up during one of my many trips to the grocery store, along with prosciutto (a staple, because YUM) and truffle oil, which I now keep on hand as well. A little goes a long way. Trust me. The flavor is just that intense! The kids say that it reminds them of garlic, and I would agree. There’s also some butter, and a bit of creme fraiche in there as well.

In order to make this, you can use oven save mason jars, or ramekins. You’ll need to butter all three mason jars well, so that they will bake and sizzle the eggs just right. After oiling the mason jars, you need to add two tablespoons of heavy cream, and 1 tablespoon of creme fraiche. Crack an egg into each mason jar, top with chopped truffles, a drizzle of truffle oil, and chopped prosciutto, bake for 12 minutes at 400 degrees in a water bath, and you have yourself a breakfast, lunch or dinner entree fit for royalty. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and you’re set!  I would serve these up with toasted breadsticks for dipping and be in heaven.

    So boring, but I love a good fried egg with toast.
    Lots of butter, fry the egg, gently flip, fry some more.
    Turn up the heat, add a bit more butter and toast your bread right on the pan. Yum yum.
    Your eggs look really good though and make my eggs seem sort of boring LOL!

    This looks so delicious! I am a big egg snob and exclusively buy the Egglands Best cage-free brown eggs. I love my eggs cooked over easy or in a veggie omelet. I am a huge egg lover 🙂

    I love soft scrambled eggs with a sprinkle of sea salt It’s so simple but it’s the BEST! I could also go for scrambled eggs with goat cheese and shrimp, if I’m feeling adventurous! !!

    Since we’re on the green smoothie detox this week – the only thing other than the smoothies we can eat are eggs, fresh fruit, and nuts. So we have eaten a LOT of Eggsand’s Best Eggs this week.

    My favorite way to eat eggs- friend lightly with salt and pepper.

    I like scrambled best, then I like fried hard in between 2 slices of bread, cheese, and ham or bacon too, and thirdly hard boiled – just the whites with salt.

    I used to help my mom with her poached eggs and have been pondering if i’m missing out but I really don’t think I’d like runny eggs, nor do I like the yolks of hard boiled.
