Pimento & Prosciutto Eggs (Very Classy & Easy Appy)

10 mins (prep 10)
6 ingredients
12 servings
Unless I somehow find a way to get my hands on more of the outstanding Australian Womens Weekly cookbook series, this will be my final recipe & it's a spec way to end my journey thru the series. I have not made this one, but it's from the *Finger Food* cookbook & is yet another easy-fix + pretty to serve. I wish you could see the pic! Your best option is to make them & see for yourself. *Enjoy* ! (The recipe starts w/eggs already hard-boiled, so that cook time is not included).
