Surprising Stuffed Eggs

Crisped prosciutto adds salty crunch to appetizer

“Us Yankees love our (stuffed) eggs,” says Jim Bailey, The Yankee Chef.

With his roots firmly planted in traditional Yankee cuisine, Bailey knows that the best way to everyone’s heart is through their stomach. This week, the Yankee Chef finds his way into our hearts with his recipe for Stuffed Eggs.

In a twist on the traditional deviled egg, typically prepared with paprika, Bailey substitutes the salty Italian specialty, prosciutto for the spice. Says Bailey, “It’s almost like having bacon and eggs.”

And the flavor doesn’t stop at the prosciutto. This recipe also features the spicy kick of mustard and the sharp bite of cheddar cheese, both of which are balanced nicely with the creamy tang of sour cream.

Serve these mouthfuls of cheesy delights warm and make sure to make an extra batch. Once you serve them, they’ll be gone in a flash.
