I previously made an incredible Prosciutto Provolone Pizza with half the package of Prosciutto. My grandmother had asked me about the Prosciutto and yes, it’s supposed to be eaten “raw” when sliced thin. It’s cured and it’s supposed to be that way. I wanted to try it fried up as well, so this recipe was born.

Here is the Prosciutto, just cooked, draining on a paper towel. I had a few nibbles and it’s delicious!

My recipe calls for green onions because we had some green onions that needed to be used. I’m sure it would be fine with regular onions or scallions. It’s up to you.

I took a photo of everything simmering down. How do food bloggers take photos when there’s all this steam, I wonder?

I took this off the heat right before adding the final ingredients of cream and butter so I could get a proper photo.

This is really an incredible dish and I love it! I shared some with my grandmother and she loved it as well. It’s a hit! Enjoy!
