Asparagus Bundles

Here’s an easy but fancy looking side dish! 

It’s perfect for a holiday meal but simple enough weeknight dinner. Crispy puff pastry bundles with asparagus, melted Parmesan cheese, honey and Prosciutto. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bundle of Asparagus
  • 6 slices of Prosciutto 
  • Honey
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 Pillsbury Crescent Dough sheet
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Salt & Pepper 

INSTRUCTIONS

Set the oven to 375°F

Wash the asparagus, cut off the woody ends (where the green color starts to fade to white). 

Cut the puff pastry sheet into six squares.

Place the puff pastry squares on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Spindle about 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese onto the puff pastry. 

Squeeze about 1 1/2 teaspoons of honey on top of the cheese. 

Place a slice of prosciutto on top of the cheese and honey. 

Lay 3-4 asparagus spears on top of prosciutto. 

Wrap the edges of the dough and prosciutto  around the asparagus and press to seal.

In a small bowl, whisk the egg and milk together. 

Brush the dough with the egg wash, sprinkle with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. 

Bake for about 15 minutes, until the pastries are golden.

Take out of oven and sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese

Serve right away and enjoy!
