Why I love Broccolini with Parmesan, Prosciutto and Fried Egg:

This little meal is my new favorite for so many reasons: it’s delicious, quick, easy, and can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as an appetizer! Oh and that crispy prosciutto, that perfectly fried egg, freshly grated parmesan, what’s not to like? But there’s more…Italian bread crumbs sautéed in butter and it’s all placed atop blanched broccolini… swoon.

Make this recipe gluten free/keto/low carb and just as good:

If you live without gluten, you don’t have to sacrifice the bread crumbs in this recipe. I use Ian’s Gluten Free Original Panko Bread Crumbs, they are GF and just as good! If you are one of my carb watching viewers, simply replace the bread crumbs with almond meal and a little Italian seasoning. It’s all good!


The Recipe: Broccolini with Parmesan, Prosciutto and Fried Egg

Tips and what you will need: My gluten free friends can use GF Bread Crumbs of course! You will need a microplane for grating Parmesan. Learn to fry an egg perfectly here.
