This fried egg yolk with burrata and prosciutto on toast is what brunch dreams are made of!

The Deets

This might be the most EXTRA toast: fried egg yolk, with burrata and prosciutto on sourdough. If you’ve never tried frying an egg yolk, I highly recommend it. It sounds intimidating, but it’s so easy and adds the most delicious crunch to the egg. Get out some bread crumbs and carefully coat your yolk. Then your going to heat up oil so it’s nice and hot then add the yolk. You’ll toast up your bread, layer on the burrata and prosciutto and then delicately place the egg yolk on top. It’s just SO good. The salty prosciutto mixed with the creamy burrata is just such a heavenly bite. The crunchy and rich fried egg yolk really levels this one up. This will take your Sunday brunch to a whole new level. Try making it for friends too, and really impress them with this decadent recipe! One of my favorite things to experiment with is toast and I have a full collection you can browse here. If you like sweet or savory, there’s something for everyone on my list.
