  • 4 slices Iberico Ham or Prosciutto di Parma
  • 4 eggs
  • Sea Salt and ground pepper to taste
  • Fresh chives, chopped for garnish

  2. Cut the puff pastry in 4 equal squares
  3. Lay evenly apart on an oven cooking tray/ pan with parchment paper and prick the center with a fork.

  5. Fold each slice of ham by the middle and place on top of the puff pastry.
  6. Cover the ham with the gruyere cheese on the edges but leaving the center without cheese.
  7. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the edges are a little golden and starting to puff, remove from the oven and using the back of a spoon, press the center of each square to make an indent for the eggs.

  9. Remove, garnish with chives and serve immediately.
