Asparagus, Ham and Goat Cheese Appetizers
16 oz. asparagus spears, cut 4 to 6 inches long
16 thin slices prosciutto or thinly sliced ham
32 teaspoons soft goat cheese
(or 6-1/2 ounces)
1. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a pot over high heat. Add asparagus spears and cook for 3-5min. Using tongs, remove the asparagus from the pot and place into a large bowl filled with ice and water until completely cooled. Once cooled, remove asparagus spears and place on paper towels to drain.
2. Lay one piece of prosciutto or ham flat on the cutting board. Place one teaspoon of goat cheese on the ham or prosciutto. Gently press one asparagus spear into the goat cheese lengthwise with the prosciutto.
3. Bring the sides of the prosciutto in toward the center and press into the goat cheese. Then secure both ends of the prosciutto by wrapping them in the same direction around the asparagus stem. Repeat for all asparagus spears.
4. Arrange the spears flat on a platter. Enjoy!
