Asparagus Spears with Prosciutto and Goat Cheese

Sweet, salty, crispy, creamy and caramelized!

I posted a similar recipe months ago, but without the Asparagus spears….now people are telling me they can’t find this on the site, so I’m posting it again, with assembly pix.

Since it’s springtime, this is the PERFECT party appetizer. Just grab a bag of fresh asparagus spears and follow these steps:

Blanch a pound of fresh, washed and trimmed asparagus spears for 2 min in boiling water.

Allow 8 ounces of fresh chevre to come to room temperature.

Smear 1 tsp of chevre along each spear, then wrap in either a thinly shaved honey ham slice or a paper-thin slice of prosciutto ham.

Broil or grill the prepared spears for 3 min on each side.

Serve warm.

Either smear the cheese on the stalk or on the ham slice.
