  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4-5 cups baby spinach
  • 12 thin slices prosciutto
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups cream
  • 2 cup gruyere grated
  • ½ teaspoon paprika


  • Preheat oven to 375º. Spray/rub 14-15 cups of a muffin pan with olive oil.
  • Cup each slice of prosciutto in half and press into a muffin cup so that it lines the cup. It doesn’t have to completely cover the cup. Repeat for remaining cups.
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat and add garlic. Cook for about a minute, and then add the spinach cooking until it is wilted, about 2-3 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs with cream and add cheese. Add slightly cooled spinach and divide the batter evenly among the prosciutto lined cups. Sprinkle with paprika.
  • Bake for 15- 20 minutes or until they are puffed and golden brown and the edges are pulling away from the muffin cups. Let cool for 10 minutes and then remove onto a wire rack to cool slightly before eating.


You can freeze and reheat in the microwave on low power
