Flashback Friday ~Asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto


This is a very simple appetizer that tastes really good. It would be a good choice for an Easter or other Spring gathering.

Prepare your asparagus by washing it and trimming it down to the best part of the stalk. Pat the asparagus dry and then wrap a thin piece of prosciutto around each stalk. Place them on a broiler pan under the the broiler flame and watch them carefully. It won't take long for them to be ready to eat. I'm sorry I don't have a specific time to keep them under the flame. Just watch them and when the prosciutto gets a little crispy on the edges you can remove them from the oven. Plate them and watch them disappear. These are good at room temperature, too.
Enjoy!

  12. I have also tried this as a side dish. Take 2-3 stalks of asparagus, add a glob of goat cheese in the middle of the stalks, then wrap with prosciutto. Roast/bake as mentioned above. Rich in taste, and a big hit at the dinner table. Candace :)
