This faster, easier version of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus will disappear quickly from your holiday dinner table. Rather than wrapping the spears in prosciutto slices, we’ve crisped the prosciutto in the microwave and broken it into bite-size chips to sprinkle over the tender roasted asparagus.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 slices PC Free From Prosciutto Dry-Cured Ham
  • 1 pkg (300 g) frozen PC Asparagus Spears
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) PC Memories Of Eggs Benedict Hollandaise Sauce

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Arrange prosciutto on paper towel-lined large microwave-safe plate, overlapping slightly if necessary. Cover with separate sheet of paper towel. Microwave until crispy, about 2 minutes. Let cool. Set aside.
  3. Toss together frozen asparagus, oil, salt and pepper on baking sheet. Arrange in single layer. Bake, turning asparagus once, until tender-crisp, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place hollandaise sauce in small microwave-safe bowl or liquid measuring cup. Microwave 15 seconds; stir and repeat until heated through. Set aside. Break prosciutto into bite-size pieces; set aside.
  5. Transfer asparagus to serving platter. Drizzle with hollandaise sauce and sprinkle with prosciutto.

Chef’s Tip: You can crisp the prosciutto in the oven, if you prefer. Arrange the slices in a single layer on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until crispy, 5  to 7 minutes.
