Welcome to Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas!  During this blog hop, my friends from Parties With A Cause,  Joy in the Commonplace, and BellaGrey Designs are joining me to bring you 12 straight days of Christmas ideas to get you ready for your holiday entertaining. Today the other bloggers and I are all sharing savory Christmas recipes.  

I love to prepare egg cups in muffin tins because it is so quick and easy and perfect if you are serving a small crowd.  To make these stuffed prosciutto egg cups,  first spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.  Then lay a piece of prosciutto into each muffin tin cup.  Press in a thin layer of prepared stuffing on the bottom and sides of the cup. Bake the prosciutto and stuffing in the oven.  Remove the muffin tin from the oven, then place an egg into each cup and top with cheese and pepper.  Then pop the muffin tin back into the oven.

I love a nice runny egg yoke, so I bake mine for 6 to 8 minutes.  If you prefer a more set egg yolk, then leave the egg cups in the oven for 9 to 11 minutes.  

The prep time on this prosciutto egg cup recipe is minimal and you can prepare a delicious breakfast for a lot of people all at once.

I made this recipe yesterday, and although everyone at my house loved them, there were still some left over.   So, I put the extra egg cups into my refrigerator.  And today I discovered that after about 45 seconds in the microwave, these still tasted amazing!  You know what that means, right?  Yup - this savory Christmas recipe can be prepared ahead of time!
