Ingredients

  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed but still cold, if too warm, it will be hard to work with
  • 1 bundle asparagus ends trimmed (about 36 stalks)
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Squeeze lemon juice
  • 4 oz herb goat cheese
  • 1 cup grated gruyere cheese
  • 9 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Olive oil and flaky sea salt for topping, optional
  • 1 tablespoon honey optional

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees, and line one large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, toss asparagus tips with olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. Unroll puff pastry and flatten into a 9-by-14-inch rectangle. Cut it into 9 squares.
  4. Spread a smear of goat cheese on each square. Top each square with a slice of prosciutto, 4 seasoned asparagus, and a mound of gruyere cheese, going diagonally down the square.
  5. Lift two opposite corners of the puff pastry squares and wrap them around the asparagus and press to seal. Brush puff pastry with egg wash. Place in fridge for 25-30 minutes (very important so the puff pastry rise probably).
  6. Remove the bites from the fridge and immediately put into oven. Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until golden brown and flaky.
  7. Allow to cool slightly. Top with olive oil, flaky sea salt, and honey.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
