Scrambled eggs with prosciutto and mozzarella

Adapted from Cook Like Your Grandmother and Eating European


  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup of mozzarella, diced small
  • 1 slice of prosciutto, torn
  • 1 small onion, minced (I didn’t have, but used ½ a green bell pepper instead)
  • a pat of butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Melt butter in a non stick frying pan.
  2. Add vegetables and sauté until translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add prosciutto and cook until a little bit crispy, another 3-5 minutes.
  4. Pour egg mixture over everything and cook until almost set.
  5. At the end add mozzarella cheese and cook it until the cheese melts.
  6. Serve immediately with a piece of fresh bread on a side.

I picked up some Pão de Queijo (Brazilian cheese bread) which I love, especially slightly heated up. Using more eggs would have made a better base to hold everything together, but cooking for one! The Italian translation would be “Uova strapazzate con prosciutto crudo” — check out this video I found! Parsley would look good on this. I’ve been picking up $2 potted flowers ever since my aunt got me the holiday Poinsettia (which suffered from extreme cold migrating during winter break and lost 75% of its leaves and petals).
