Prosciutto and Fried Egg Sandwiches

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Sandwiches/Wraps


  • 2 slices Tuscan, ciabatta, or other crusty bread
  • 4 to 6 thin slices Parmesan
  • 2 thin slices prosciutto
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 handful fresh baby spinach
  • 1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the broiler, with the tray set at the lowest position. Broil the bread slices on one side until toasted, 1-2 minutes.

  2. Divide the cheese and prosciutto evenly on the untoasted sides.

  3. Return them to the broiler and cook, open-faced, until the prosciutto is crispy and the cheese has begun to melt, about 1 minute. Turn off the broiler, leaving the sandwiches inside to stay warm.

  4. In a frying pan, melt 1 tbsp. of the butter, then fry the eggs to the desired doneness.

  5. Remove the sandwiches and top each with an egg.

  6. Add the remaining butter to the pan and saute the garlic over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the garlic begins to soften. Add the spinach and cook until it wilts, then add the lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  7. Spoon the garlic mixture over the sandwiches and serve.
