A regular morning struggle: You come across a healthy breakfast recipe at night and wake up disappointed when you realize it calls for more than two handfuls of ingredients, including at least one ridiculous thing that you’ve never heard of. Now, breathe a sigh of relief. Our prosciutto cups (inspired by the ever-so-Pinterest-famous ham cups) only require four ingredients—including black pepper! It’s proof positive that you can eat a healthy breakfast on a budget, even when your fridge is bare and you’re short on time. Hit the snooze button one too many times, then whip up a batch of portable egg cups wrapped in salty prosciutto.
