Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 1 ACE Bakery® Three Cheese Oval
  • ¼ cup softened, salted butter
  • 6 slices of prosciutto
  • 6 medium eggs
  • Pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped, fresh chives 

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

2. Cut the bread loaf into 6 1 ½-inch thick slices, discarding ends. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out the bread from the centre of each slice and discard bread cut-outs (or set aside for extra dipping). Spread both sides of each cut-out slice of bread with a light coating of butter.

3. Place bread slices onto a lined baking sheet. Next, fold and layer in a slice of prosciutto so it cups the well like a cupcake liner. You’ll want the sides to stick out like a flower because it's going to cradle the egg and the edges will crisp up in the oven.

4. Crack an egg into each of the wells and sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and chives. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the egg whites are set, but the yolk is still soft like a poached egg. Serve warm and enjoy right away.
