Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Spirals

Good Morning friends!  I am back to share another great appetizer idea that would be perfect for your super bowl party next weekend!  These are sophisticated and super flavorful and a great way to get your kids to eat some vegetables!  I actually made these for Ryan’s Second Birthday Party and called them Mickey’s Magical Wands and they were eaten up like candy!  They do taste amazing but the fun name also helped them disappear! ;-)

These appetizers are great because they are more than just finger foods!  They are wrapped in puff pastry so they are super buttery and filling!  There is an entire asparagus spear in there so you are getting some vegetables and the prosciutto and the cheese give them the perfect salty balance to the buttery puff pastry! 

Another plus for these:  you can make them the day ahead of time!  Everyone who entertains knows what a great help make ahead dishes are!  Get them prepared and wrapped and store them in the refrigerator covered tightly and they bake up as good as if you made them the hour before!  They are sophisticated so you can branch out from your regular taco dip (not saying taco dip isn’t AWE-SOME…it’s just common!) and try this new snack!  You will be amazed at the reviews you get from your party goers! 

Wrapped Asparagus

As ANOTHER bonus!  If you have any extra puff pastry, you can just cut it in strips, then in half lengthwise and roll the dough, cheese, and prosciutto into spirals and make a tasty treat without the greens.

My kids actually eat the asparagus ones first and then turn to these when the others are gone.  Although my kids are kind of strange…they love vegetables!  (not complaining, just stating a fact!)

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Spirals

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 package (2 sheets) of Puff Pastry, thawed (found in freezer section)
  • 1 round container of Laughing Cow spreadable Garlic & Herb Cheese
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • 32 fresh asparagus spears, ends trimmed

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Open your puff pastry sheets and unfold to make two square pastry sheets.
  • Spread 3 triangles of laughing cow cheese onto each pastry square. (6 triangles total)
  • Next cover your pastry squares with 4 slices of prosciutto each. 8 slices total
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut the pastry square in half, then in half again and repeat until you have 16 strips of pastry about 1/2" wide each.
  • Start by wrapping the pastry strip tightly around the asparagus spear and place onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat with remaining asparagus spears until you have all 32 complete.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until puff pastry is golden brown.

      No. Honestly. Michael was off school both Monday & Tuesday and I think ever since having the flu I have had no concept of what day it is. Honestly thought it was Friday…changed it to Good Morning instead! WOW! I need more coffee…I’m so happy you read my posts each day and keep me in line…it’s a big job but I am glad you do it! Love you!

    Sounds yummy! I thought either you are early or I’m way behind since you said Friday. I’m glad your ahead…lol.

    • Cheryl says:

      Ha! No Crystal…just not with it yet! Holy Moly! I changed it to good morning instead! Now I am going to go get my recycle can from the curb…that happens on Friday too! {shaking my head}
