Don't be afraid of the fancy-schmancy name--this recipe is super-easy to make! While a bottle of truffle oil is a bit of an investment (I've seen a 3-4oz. bottle sell for $12-20 easy!), a little goes a long way, and you won't be disappointed with the results!
- 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 1⁄3 cups milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper

- 3 1⁄2 ounces prosciutto, torn into bite-sized pieces
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
