Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles

Roasted asparagus, salty prosciutto & creamy mozzarella wrapped in a light and flaky puff pastry on a baking sheet

Looking for an elegant yet simple appetizer for your next occasion?

Try these tasty bundles of roasted asparagus, salty prosciutto & creamy mozzarella wrapped in a light and flaky puff pastry

Let’s start by assembling the ingredients

You’ll need one sheet of defrosted puff pastry, 1 bunch of fresh asparagus, 8 thin slices of prosciutto, 8 slices of mozzarella, 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder, 1 tablespoon each of sesame and poppy seeds.  You’ll also need a beaten egg and some olive oil

Trim the woody stems from the asparagus and drizzle with olive oil, the kosher salt, black pepper and garlic powder.  Set aside

How long does asparagus last in the fridge?

Fresh raw asparagus lasts about 3 to 4 days in the fridge on its own. If you wrap in a damp paper towel before storing, you’ll get another 2 to 3 days

In my opinion, the best way to store fresh asparagus in your fridge is in a small bowl or jar of water.  That’s how they display it at the supermarket, right?  It will last anywhere from 8-10 days when you use this method

Dust your work space with flour and roll out the puff pastry dough into a large rectangle

Cut into 8 squares.  They won’t be perfectly even, but that’s ok.  Once they bake, they’ll all look uniform.  Or at least uniform “enough”  Image result for laugh emoji png

On each square, place a slice of prosciutto folded in half,  slice of mozzarella and 2-3 asparagus spears

Fold in one of the corners and brush with the egg wash.  Fold the other corner and press lightly so the corners stick together

Repeat, repeat, repeat and place on a sheet pan with parchment that has been sprayed with cooking oil

Once they’re all wrapped into bundles, brush each one with the remaining egg wash.  Sprinkle with the sesame and poppy seeds

    We’ve made prosciutto wrapped asparagus before but never even thought to add any cheese and then wrap it in puff pastry! Genius! We will definitely be making this in the near future. Thank you for sharing!
