You've likely seen recipes for egg cups on our site before, or maybe not. (Go ahead and look; we'll wait). They're a simple way to get more eggs (and veggies, and cheese, and whatever else you want in there) into your diet, and they're a snap to prep, too. But these Keto Prosciutto Egg Cups are kind of a next-level egg cup. They're a high protein, low carb grab-and-go item that works for breakfast or snack! You could even pair them with soup or salad for lunch, if so inclined.

But what IS this egg cup? Well, these keto prosciutto egg cups have a crispy outside (that's the meat) with a perfectly cooked egg in the center. They also happen to be Whole30 compliant, and are definitely gluten-free, too.

How to Make Keto Prosciutto Egg Cups

Ok, these couldn't be easier. It's almost not even a recipe. It's kind of more of an assembly job, although there is cooking involved.

Start off with a muffin tin, and then nestle some thinly sliced prosciutto so that it forms a little nest for the baby arugula and the egg. Then, add the baby arugula, leaving a bit of a well in the middle for the egg. Crack an egg into each nest, and that's really it. Hit it with some salt and pepper, and you're good to go. Pop it into a preheated oven and bake until the egg is cooked to your liking, which can take anywhere from 10 to 18 minutes.

How to Store and Serve Keto Prosciutto Cups

These can be gently slid out of the muffin tins and stored in covered airtight meal prep containers in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Pack them up with more arugula and some strawberries for a little side salad. Breakfast, lunch, or snack time is prepped and served!

Variations for Prosciutto Keto Egg Cups

These would taste great with a sprinkle of freshly shaved Parmesan cheese on top. They'd also work well with baby spinach or kale; you want to stick with a baby lettuce of some sort because they fit the best in the cups. Otherwise, you might spend time cutting up larger pieces of greens to make it fit a bit more elegantly.

Sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top, extra salt and pepper, or hot sauce if that's your thing.

Any other keto-compliant fruit would work, such as blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries, or a combination of all three.
