The number two most requested recipe I have received is about stuffed eggs with the number one request (believe it or not) being Baked Beans. Many of the emails I get are people who are trying to replicate meals they had as a child or something their parents or grandparents made many years ago.

The recipe I am about to give you is a little off the beaten path, but I have taken a generational classic and made it into something I think you will enjoy and pass down to your children. It combines that great taste you had growing up with boosted flavor and a manner of serving that everyone will be asking about.

Ingredients

  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 4 thin slices prosciutto
  • 3 tablespoons cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives, fresh or dried
  • 1/3 cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1-2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon butter or margarine, melted

Preparation

  • 3 Add the prosciutto slices and cook until crisp on each side. Remove to paper towel lined plate to drain and cool.
  • 4 Remove eggs and peel. With a sharp knife, cut each egg lengthwise in half. Take a thin sliver of egg white off oppositeside of cut so that each egg half sits sturdily upright on a serving plate.
  • 5 With a teaspoon, remove cooked yolks into a bowl. In a mixing bowl, combine the yolks, cheese, mustard, sour creamand chives.
  • 6 Mix well and season to taste with salt and pepper. You can spoon the filling into each egg, using a piping bag or add to a large resealable plastic baggie and snip off a corner toact as a piping bag.
  • 7 After placing all eggs cut side up, pipe the filling into each evenly. Preheat broiler and position rack to lowest level.
  • 8 While the broiler is preheating, mix bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese and melted butter. Evenly sprinkle over the tops of each egg.
