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.
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.
