~Shopping List~

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • 1 tsp Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper

~To do~

Fill a small shallow saucepan with about 2″ water, and heat to almost boiling; then add 1 or 2 tsp vinegar (vinegar will help the egg whites congeal).  Crack one of the eggs into a small cup, then place the cup near the edge of the hot water and gently pour into water; repeat with the other egg.  You can use a spoon to help push the whites closer to the yolks- it helps hold them together.  Turn off the heat, cover the pan, and let sit for 4 minutes, until egg whites are cooked.

On a plate, layer the prosciutto, avocado, tomatoes, and then the eggs.  Garnish with Parmesan and adjust the salt and pepper to you taste.
