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.
I know it’s a little different than what you are used to seeing on my blog but I hope you will give it a try. I promise, you will love it. Photo credit: Octavia Kathryn
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.
- 1 stalk broccolini
- 2 slices prosciutto
- 1 fried egg
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons Italian Bread Crumbs (carb watchers use almond meal with tossed with a 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning)
- 1 tablespoon butter
Place a med size pot of water to boil. Grate cheese, set aside. When water is almost boiling place a pan on medium heat.
Add prosciutto to pan and cook for a minute, turn over and push prosciutto to the side of pan. Add butter to pan and use spatula to distribute butter evenly. Carefully crack an egg into pan. Sprinkle bread crumbs into pan far enough away from egg that they don't mix. Use spatula to mix bread crumbs with butter. Fry egg until whites are set and yolk is cooked to your liking. While egg cooks:
Add broccolini stalk to boiling water. Blanche for four minutes. Remove broccolini from water, set on paper towel, then on a plate. Sprinkle with cheese, top with crispy prosciutto and fried egg. Season with sea salt and pepper and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Serve!

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!!
Thank you Carol!
This looks really yummy, Linda! I’d eat it in a heartbeat. 🙂
I think this is definitely swoon-able! Slice into that perfectly poached egg and you’d have everything you need for the sauce. On the list to make this week!
Love this Linda! And that platter!!! It’s so beautiful! I always love seeing your dishes.
What a beautiful and healthy dish for one. Yummy!
Yum! I make a similar meal with asparagus for lunch from time to time but I adore broccolini and I bet this is delicious!
Asparagus would be great too!
