Recipe by Sarah L.

I found this recipe in an old cookbook that the SO picked up from Goodwill for me. It's so good (and so fattening) and he LOVES it! You can substitute half and half or light cream for the heavy cream to save on fat and cals, and you can also use bacon instead of the proscuitto as it's quite expensive.
