Prosciutto ( prə-SHOO-toh, proh-, Italian: [proʃˈʃutto]) is an Italian dry-cured ham that is usually thinly sliced and served uncooked; this style is called prosciutto crudo in Italian (or simply crudo) and is distinguished from cooked ham, prosciutto cotto.
A number of regions have their own variations of prosciutto, each with degrees of protected status, but the most prized are the Prosciutto di Parma PDO from the Emilia-Romagna region and the Prosciutto di San Daniele PDO from the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region. Unlike Italian Speck, which is also a dry-cured ham, prosciutto is not smoked.
The names prosciutto and prosciutto crudo are generic, and not protected designations, and may name or describe a variety of hams more or less similar to Italian prosciutto crudo or other dry-cured hams worldwide.

Classic carbonara has egg yolk, Pecorino Romano, guanciale, black pepper, pasta and maybe some pasta water, that's it. But, it seems like sometimes you end up with scrambled eggs and pasta. This method virtually eliminates that possibility.
This recipe also is not classic in that it uses...

Cut an "X" in the top of each fig, but do not cut all the way to the bottom. Wrap the prosciutto around the fig (you can use a toothpick to secure if you must, but try to get it to stay together without one), leaving the upper half...
