Recipe: Asparagus Prosciutto Appetizer

These were so easy and tasty! If you like bacon, you'll love crispy prosciutto.

Asparagus Prosciutto Appetizer
1 bundle of thin asparagus spears
1 package of herbed goat cheese
1 package of lean prosciutto

Cut the asparagus down to an even length - about the size of a pencil. Strip the prosciutto into two slices (it should naturally be split down the middle). Spread a dab of goat cheese on the prosciutto. Wrap the strip - cheese in- evenly around the asparagus leaving a few inches free at the end.

Place the spears on a baking sheet or pan and put under the broiler for about 10 minutes, or until the prosciutto browns. Serve warm or room temperature.

I have had this several times, minus the goat cheese, and it is delicious. We usually drizzle olive oil then sprinkle some pepper and a touch of salt on top. I bet the goat cheese gives it a nice rich flavor.

I made this when I was "catering" a party once, only we used that Rondelle cheese and didn't bake it. This looks much tastier!

I've never made this before with goat cheese, what a great flavor to add to the mix, thanks for the idea!

I just made this for a party this weekend and the guests loved them! So easy to make last minute too. Thanks for the suggestion.

I did some of these for a tapas dinner party Saturday night. Although not Spanish, it fit with our theme of small bites/plates. It was definitely a hit, and so easy. I'll be putting this into permanent rotation. Thanks Em!
