Pancetta Egg Cups

Beth Renzetti


I found this on the blog Mom Foodie & credit the original recipe to Robin Gagnon. I have changed it up a bit to accommodate personal tastes & preferences. Wow. Everyone deserves to splurge every now & then! Posted for the Italian part of our Culinary Quest tour, 2014.

This is written to fill a muffin tin. Of course you can make less. But, why??
