  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp chopped jalapeño
  • 1 Tbsp chopped chives
  • Salt and pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Crack and separate all eggs, placing whites in a large bowl and yolks in 4 separate small bowls.
  • Using a hand mixer (or a whisk and a lot of arm strength), whip egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold in chopped prosciutto, shredded cheese, chopped jalapeño, and chopped chives.
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spoon egg white mixture into four equal-sized mounds. Push spoon down to make a deep well in the middle of each mound.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and add an egg yolk to each mound.
  • Season with salt and pepper and bake for another 2-3 minutes, until egg yolks are set.
