1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

6 large thin slices prosciutto (about 1/3 pound)

6 large eggs

1/2 medium tomato, cut into thin wedges

1/2 cup packed fresh basil leaves, chopped

1/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 small clove garlic, finely grated


  1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Brush 6 standard muffin cups with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil; the oil will pool on the bottom of the cups, but that's okay. Line each cup with a slice of prosciutto, folding and overlapping so that the entire surface of the cup is covered and no metal is peeking through. Crack 1 egg into each prosciutto cup and top each egg with a tomato wedge. Reserve the remaining tomato wedges for serving.
  3. Bake until the egg whites are set and wobble only slightly, 8 to 10 minutes (the eggs will continue to cook after they come out). Let cool 5 minutes, then use an offset spatula to loosen the prosciutto from the edges of each cup and lift onto a plate for serving. 
  4. Mix the basil, walnuts, red pepper flakes and garlic with the remaining olive oil in a small bowl to combine. Serve over the egg cups and remaining tomato wedges.
