Inspired from a favorite pasta sauce, I modified this and put it in an omelet one morning at the cottage.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Roll each prosciutto slice into a cylinder and cut into 3/4-inch segments; put into a saucepan. Stir onion, tomato, and Pinot Grigio with the prosciutto; cook over medium-high heat until most of the wine has evaporated, about 10 minutes.

  • Heat olive oil in a small skillet or omelet pan over medium heat. Beat egg and egg whites together in a small bowl; pour into the hot skillet and tilt the skillet around so the egg covers the cooking surface completely. Cook egg undisturbed until no longer wet on top, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour the prosciutto mixture over one half of the egg; top with Cheddar cheese. Lift the opposing half of the egg with a spatula and fold over the filling. Continue to cook until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes more.

I made this for brunch on New Year's Day - perfection! The wine adds so much depth of flavor as well as the prosciutto and onions. I used Chardonnay instead of Pinot Grigio bc that's what I had on hand. I'll definitely be making this again. A great way to impress guests! I might try using brie instead of cheddar to change things up. Thanks for the fabulous recipe! Read More

A must have for the adult table at your next brunch. This is also a great "brenner" candidate. I used prosciutto crudo seeing that it isn't stated in the ingredients list which to use. I didn't cook it though just added it in with the cheese at the end. I also used vegan cheddar cheese (from this website) and still it was phenomenal. Add some spicy peppers too and you won't be sorry. Read More
