Why I love This Meal:

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.

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 and a good pot and pan. If you need naturally non stick non toxic ceramic cookware, I recommend Xtrema Ceramic!

    This is my kind of meal! I’ve never used broccolini but I make very similar with Swiss chard, or baby Bok Choy.
    The combination of greens with eggs and prosciutto is, as you say, delish for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner. The addition of fresh-grated parm and those yummy crumbles.. yum 10 out of 10 Linda!!
