Ingredients:

  • Asparagus: Slightly woody and sturdy, asparagus will stand up well to roasting in the oven.
  • Prosciutto: Pick up sliced Prosciutto from your local deli. Another option is using thinly sliced bacon or ham (or even deli turkey!) if you need a quick swap.
  • Hollandaise sauce: Make your own Hollandaise sauce without a double boiler by using a blender instead.

Making this recipe will not only impress your guests, but it’s easy to eat or snack on as an appetizer or part of an hors d’oeuvre or charcuterie board.

Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a baking sheet while you’re preparing the asparagus.

Firstly, wash and dry your asparagus. You will want your ham to crisp in the oven and it won’t be able to crisp if there is excess water on your stalks.

Tightly wrap your Prosciutto around the asparagus and place it on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the asparagus stalks are fork tender and the Prosciutto is slightly crispy on the ends.

Bake the asparagus stalks at 350°F for 15 minutes.

The asparagus can be served as is, or you can drizzle the stalks with Hollandaise sauce just before serving. Another option is to serve the Hollandaise sauce on the side so guests can put their own Hollandaise on their asparagus.

To whip up a quick Hollandaise sauce, add egg yolks, lemon juice and mustard to a blender and blend until combined. Then add in hot melted butter in small increments to the blender. Blend well after each addition of butter and the sauce will begin to emulsify. Full directions on how to make an easy Hollandaise sauce without a double boiler can be found here.
