Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes

In this recipe, asparagus tips are tossed in a cheesy egg mixture and baked in prosciutto slices. Perfect served warm from the oven or chilled, these bites are perfect for lunch and for a picnic.


  • 12 large slices prosciutto
  • 6 eggs
  • 100ml milk
  • 5 tbsp. parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tbsp. cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 onion
  • 125g asparagus tips
  • 1 tsp. oil

Chop the onion and slice the asparagus stalks, setting the tips to one side. Fry the onion and asparagus stalks until softened, around 5 minutes, then fold into the eggs. Fold in the asparagus tips.

  3. Divide the mixture between the 12 holes of the muffin tin and bake for 20 minutes in a 180C oven or until set.

Some freshly chopped basil or some chives would be a delicious addition to the egg mix. Recipe serves 6.
