Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Recipe- easy and healthy appetizer or side

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus is an easy recipe and makes a great appetizer or side dish. The salty flavors in the prosciutto balance the asparagus and a squeeze of lemon juice or a sprinkle of garlic add to the taste.

Prosciutto wrapped asparagus is healthy and easy to make. My husband likes it because of the prosciutto and my kids eat it because the bunches of asparagus are wrapped into little packages that they can easily pick up (confession: I let my kids eat these with their fingers…)

If you have 15 minutes, I’d suggest trying this easy and delicious recipe.

Note: You can substitute bacon or slices of nitrate free ham for the prosciutto if you can’t find it where you live. I have to go to an Italian grocery to find it most of the time.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 4

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of asparagus (the thinner the spears, the better)
  • 8-10 slices of prosciutto, ham or bacon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt and pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil, melted butter, or coconut oil
  • 1 wedge of fresh lemon (optional) or 1/2 tsp of garlic powder (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Wash the asparagus and pat dry. Divide into little bunches. I usually divide one bunch of asparagus into 8 or 10 smaller ones.
  3. Wrap each small bunch of asparagus in a piece of prosciutto, ham or bacon. Place on a baking sheet or in a large baking dish. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic/lemon if using.
  4. Place in oven for 10-12 minutes until prosciutto/bacon/ham is starting to get crispy and asparagus is bright green. Check to make sure asparagus is tender (not soft!). Let sit 2 minutes to cook and serve immediately.
