Egg and bacon gets a facelift with these adorable one-bite cups! This recipe makes 12 but could easily be doubled for a brunch buffet. They are best served warm – and are perfect little bites that your guests will love! 

The prosciutto crisps up when baked, making it the perfect container for the cheesy egg mixture filling. I've garnished them here with parsley, but you can change the flavor profile by using different herbs like chives, basil, or tarragon. And you can easily add extra flavors to the filling, too. How about a little paprika or old bay seasoning?

How to Make Prosciutto Cups with Egg and Parmesan

Make the filling by mashing together hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, grated Parmesan and black pepper. Set aside. Top tip! Try hard boiling the eggs in an Instant Pot!
