I recently hosted a wedding shower for a very good friend of mine and these simple little delights all most stole the show. They’re so easy and bring so much satisfaction, they’re worth trying. Don’t mean to disappoint, but most men could never accomplish as much.
- phyllo dough, defrosted in the refrigerator
- 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
- ¼ to ½ pound thinly, very thinly sliced prosciutto
- ¼ pound of very thinly Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Before you begin, unroll your dough and pull out two sheets at a time, covering the rest with a damp towel. Cut the phyllo sheets into four pieces. You’ll use 1/4 sheet on each asparagus spear.
Wrap a piece of cheddar and then the Prosciutto tightly around the asparagus, leaving the tip free, and set aside. Pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil into a ramekin. Dip a pastry brush into the olive oil and gently brush both sides of the phyllo square. Lay the asparagus (with prosciutto) on the phyllo and roll it up. Bake the spears on a lightly greased baking pan for 10 minutes, then turn and bake another 10 minutes, until the phyllo is crispy and golden brown. Serve and share immediately!
