Prosciutto Topped Deviled Eggs

Prosciutto Topped Deviled Eggs

What happens when I have leftover prosciutto and a ton of eggs to use up?

This beautiful appetizer is born.

The saltiness of the prosciutto goes so perfectly with the creamy flavor of a deviled egg. I topped it with a little toasted panko to add a crunchy texture. It’s heaven in a bite.

I use to frequent this restaurant in San Francisco where they would top their deviled egg appetizer with crispy chicken skin and let me tell you right now, that is heaven. But since chicken skin is in short supply around my house toasted panko will have to do.

I’m always a sucker for a good deviled egg. It’s such a retro appetizer that’s really made a comeback with restaurants as of late and I’m stoked about it. I’ve had it topped with caviar, topped with smoked trout, topped with spicy roasted thai chilies. You name it, and the outcome is always the same. A delicious little bite that’s so savory and so easy to prepare for a crowd. And not to mention goes well with every holiday table.

The base to my deviled egg is very traditional, although I do like using a mixture of different types of mustards, but it’s usually what I have on hand. Always substitute for what you have on hand. There’s really nothing worse than realizing at the last minute you don’t have that one specific ingredient in a recipe and have to run to the store. Just make due and roll with it.

Wine Recommendation: What’s better than some French Sparkling with deviled eggs! Try a CrΓ©mant d’Alsace. {My personal favorite!}
