These bundles are the perfect side to any dinner party. Some main dish pairings might be a Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb, Apricot Rum Glazed Spiral Ham, or a Baked Salmon.

I got this idea from Rachel Ray only her version was with bacon. Prosciutto is a little fancier and I loved how the flavors combined. I enjoyed a bundle with a poached egg for lunch and it was divine, great for brunch!

You can easily double or triple this and assemble them ahead. Can you make them without the prosciutto? … sure! Just sprinkle with a little salt and lay them flat on the baking sheet, you can use the same cooking time.
