Poached Eggs with Prosciutto Mozzarella and Basil

Poached Eggs with Prosciutto Mozzarella and Basil

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I certainly did. It was just the right amount of lazy and productive, plus an amazing lunch with some fabulous ladies! Things are really great right now and the next month is going to bring some huge changes to my life. I've become one of those people I usually make fun of who says things like "life is good". It's bizarre! Another bizarre thing is that besides an insane amount of cookie baking last week, my kitchen is hardly being used right now. I haven't made much besides last week's quinoa and I'm ok with that. I'm too busy enjoying the world around me so posting will continue to be light perhaps until my "staycation" next week. Thankfully this recipe hardly needs any cooking and it's really more of a method than an actual recipe. It's wonderfully simple and made me so happy that I had this twice this past weekend. You really can't go wrong with creamy cheese and eggs and salty prosciutto. The only thing this needs upon completion is some crusty bread to sop up the egg yolks..and of course a glass of wine!

Glad to hear things are going well :) That is just awesome. And another very beautiful dish. Josh is a big prosciutto fan...I never thought about combining it with eggs for him. Will give it a go!

This is right up my alley with the lower-carb aspect but no skimping on flavor. What a great recipe. You always have something great coming out of your kitchen.

I just died and went to heaven, Esi. I LOVE prosciutto and eat it by the slice. The thought of the oozey yolk all over prosciutto, mozzarella and basil, is driving me crazy! I have to try this. Gorgeous presentation too - I'm picturing breakfast in Tuscany :)

Looks like such a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Mozzarella and prosciutto with those egg yolks sounds fabulous. I've yet to poach an egg though...I really need to put that on my list of things to try!

Oh wow, this is like a dream. I really want to try this recipe. I actually just tried prosciutto for the first time a couple months ago, and fell in love with it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Here's one of my favorites with prosciutto: Prosciutto-Wrapped Shrimp.
