I’m not big into appetizers. I don’t really like making them, nor do I care much for eating them. They just get in the way of what we’re all here for: dinner. (and dessert!)
I’ve been making a conscious effort to start making appetizers more often for parties instead of baking a dessert. Everyone brings dessert.
We had a housewarming party yesterday and I decided to break out of my comfort zone of one of my famous party items: peanut butter chocolate whoopie pies. So famous and so cherished I haven’t brought myself to share them with you. Sorry, I’ve been holding out. That, and they’re so easy it’s almost embarrassing.
I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed prosciutto wrapped asparagus so I figured I’d give ’em a shot. They’re so easy and elegant!
-12-20 Asparagus Spears
-3 oz. Sliced Prosciutto
-Pepper, to taste
-1 tsp. Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 450F. Prepare an ice bath in a very large bowl. Boil water in a large pot.
Wrap each spear in a piece of prosciutto. I took thin slices of prosciutto and tore them into quarters. You don’t want a ton of meat on there because it’s very salty and could overpower the asparagus.
Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Place each spear on the sheet and season with pepper, if desired.
