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! ;-)

Proscuitto Wrapped Asparagus Spirals

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.

Proscuitto Spirals

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!)

      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!

    Mmmm… they turned out beautifully! I make something similar for our holiday parties, but I’ve never thought of using the Laughing Cow spreadable cheese! Brilliant! I’ll definitely have to try it next time!
