Individual Proscuitto, Spinach, and Egg Pies – Easy

Two pies at brunch. Don't mind the iphone photography!

HELLOW these are easy and amazingly delicious! I’m always looking for simple, delicious recipes, and these individual servings are easy to take along for a snack or to serve for brunch. Also, the recipe easily reduces to only one or two servings (alternately, you could make a giant batch for a party). They’re pretty, make your kitchen smell like heaven, are simple to put together, and Danny loves them – Enjoy!

Ingredients
Olive oil for greasing the muffin tins
6 thin slices prosciutto
6 large eggs
1 cup loosely packed spinach, roughly chopped
1 ounce Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1/4 cup) – just about any cheese can be substituted
12 grape tomatoes or small cherry tomatoes, halved
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper (I find that salt is unnecessary because the prosciutto is plenty salty)

Instructions
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 6-cup muffin tin with olive oil.

2. Line the muffin cups with the prosciutto slices, pressing the prosciutto into the bottom and sides of each cup. (The prosciutto slices will overlap each other on top of the tin.) Crack 1 egg into each cup. Sprinkle the spinach over the eggs, then the Cheddar cheese, dividing them evenly. Top each serving with four tomato halves, season with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until the egg whites are firm and the yolks are starting to set but are still soft in the center. Set them aside to cool for about 5 minutes.

3. Run a knife around the edges of each cup to loosen, then lift the pies out of the tin. Serve the pies warm or at room temperature.

    Just dropped by to say I made these tasty morsels today many miles away from you in Sydney, Oz! Delicious! Substituted the cheddar for tasty cheese and the grape tomatoes for ‘Johnny Love Bites.’ My husband loved them 🙂
