I didn't have a steamer setup so just cooked it at low heat in a small frying pan, covered. It worked perfectly. This is essentially a Japanese recipe so I wouldn't recommend the prosciutto or ham, it doesn't fit the cuisine. I didn't use the rice at all, but if you did, Japanese sticky rice would be a better choice.
Steamed Egg Custard with Prosciutto and Green Onions
Think of this quick-cooking dish as an Asian-style frittata. The egg mixture cooks slowly over simmering water to produce a moist custard for a light dinner, brunch, or lunch. Substitute ham for prosciutto, if desired. Steamed or sautéed bok choy makes a good accompaniment.
