Personal Prosciutto & Egg Skillet

This has quickly become one of my new favorite breakfasts! If you're one of those people who rolls out of bed at the last minute before work - this may be a weekend creation for you. However, you if like to get up with enough time to make yourself a hot breakfast like I do, then this is a perfect weekday morning fuel up.  I usually get it started right when I wake up, and when I toss the skillet in the oven, I continue getting ready...aka putting my face on...aka caking makeup on my face to make me look a little less like the lochness monster and a little more like a human. 

Alarm clocks and bare faces aside, go ahead  and give this hearty breakfast a try and let me know what you think! 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp bacon grease
  • 2-3 slices of prosciutto
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt to taste
  • Paleo Hollandaise
  • Paprika to garnish

**Note - you can double this recipe to fit a 10 inch skillet if you don't have a mini 5 inch.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Heat bacon grease in a 5 inch cast iron skillet (or 10 inch if you're doubling the recipe)
  3. When melted, lay prosciutto across the bottom and up the sides of the skillet so all the surface is covered. Cook on medium/high heat for two minutes.
  4. Very gently crack your eggs on top of the prosciutto and place the skillet in the oven for 12 minutes, or until the whites have set and the yolks are soft.
  5. Spoon a dollop or two of yummy hollandaise on top, sprinkle on some paprika and eat right out of the skillet!
