Shirred Egg with Prosciutto
Yield: 1 serving
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 slice of prosciutto di parma, chopped roughly
1 large whole egg
½ teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
½ teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano
½ tablespoon grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1/16 teaspoon Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon heavy cream
Place an oven rack in the middle position and preheat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease the bottom and sides of an oven-safe ramekin with olive oil. Place ramekin on a sheet pan.
Place the prosciutto in the ramekin. Crack the egg into the ramekin, whole. Add the salt and pepper, herbs and cheese, then top with the cream.
Place the baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes (if using a shallow ramekin) or 11-12 minutes (if using a deeper ramekin) until the egg white is just set but the yolk still runny.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
