  • 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips and separated
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 1/2 quarts coarsely chopped escarole (from an 8-oz. head)
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh marjoram
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 squares focaccia (each 1 in. thick and 3 in. wide; 12 oz. total), split in half and toasted
  • Salt and pepper


  1. 1. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, stir prosciutto in olive oil until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer prosciutto to paper towels to drain. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. 2. Add garlic to pan and stir until limp, about 30 seconds. Stir in escarole, marjoram, and 1/4 cup water. Cover and simmer until escarole is tender to bite, about 5 minutes. Drain off any remaining water.
  3. 3. Uncover pan and pour in eggs. Stir often over medium heat until eggs are softly set, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in prosciutto.
  4. 4. Set focaccia bottoms on plates; spoon egg mixture over them. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with focaccia tops.
  5. Wine pairing: A Pinot Blanc with sweet pear and rich mineral flavors picks up the character of the prosciutto. A lively Sauvignon Blanc or Albariño pairs seamlessly with the escarole.
