  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup chopped prosciutto
  • ¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp chopped jalapeño
  • 1 Tbsp chopped chives
  • tsp salt
  • tsp pepper


  • Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 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 prepared 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. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for about 4 minutes. Remove from oven and add an egg yolk to each mound.
  • Bake for another 2-3 minutes, until egg yolks are set.


  • If you aren't a fan of spice, feel free to leave out the jalapeño.
