Ingredients

  • 12-14 slices prosciutto
  • 8 cups fresh baby spinach (or 2 cups frozen chopped spinach, thawed)
  • 4 oz. goat cheese (Chévre)
  • 9 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray or brush a muffin tin with oil, then line each cup with a slice of prosciutto being sure to seal it up as much as possible.
  • Combine fresh spinach with a few tablespoons of water in a large covered pot over medium heat. Let steam a minute or two, or until the spinach is completely wilted (skip this step if using frozen spinach). While the spinach wilts, whisk together the 9 eggs in a large bowl. Drain spinach & squeeze off excess liquid, then add to the eggs.
  • Crumble the goat cheese into the spinach and egg mixture, then add the salt, pepper, and cream. Stir until combined, then divide the mixture into the prosciutto-lined cups, filling all the way to the top.
  • Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until the eggs are puffed and slightly golden on top. Remove from oven and use a fork and knife to carefully remove each egg cup from the muffin tin. Serve immediately, or let chill and serve as a cold dish.
  • Leftover egg cups will keep well for 3-5 days when wrapped individually and refrigerated.
