  • Place your ovenproof skillet in the oven and preheat to 450°F for 25 minutes. (see Note 2)
  • In a small bowl add the flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a blender add the eggs, milk and 2 tablespoons of melted butter, blend for 10 seconds. Add the flour mixture and blend for 30 seconds.
  • CAREFULLY remove skillet from oven and add remaining tablespoon of butter, swirl to coat bottom. Pour egg mixture in skillet and immediately sprinkle a quarter cup each of the cheese and pesto on the top.

1. Prosciutto thinly sliced, usually about 3-4 slices. Tear into bite size pieces.
2. Cast iron skillets work best I think, just make sure your skillet is safe to put in the oven.
