This is from Martha Stewart. This dish is a good use for day-old baguette or leftover Italian bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 baguette (15 inches long)
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 14 cup parsley, roughly chopped flat-leaf
  • 12 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • coarse salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices prosciutto (2 ounces thinly sliced )


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice 1/4 inch off the top of the bread, and hollow out bottom, discarding the crumb (soft interior) of the loaf. Cut top into 1-inch pieces, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, zest, milk, parsley, and Parmesan. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Stir in 1/2 cup bread pieces.
  3. Place hollowed-out bread on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place prosciutto slices along inside of bread to cover. Slowly pour egg mixture to the brim. Bake until eggs are puffed up and cooked through, 30 to 33 minutes.
  4. Slice into 2-inch pieces. Serve immediately.
