Take-out Tuesday, Cheesy Asparagus & Prosciutto Pastries

This recipe checks a lot of the positive boxes

It’s easy to make ✅

You can make it in advance ✅

It can be an appetizer, a brunch dish, ✅ ✅

a side dish with soup or salad, ✅ ✅

or a side with just about any meat, chicken or fish ✅ ✅ ✅

Only a few ingredients,

asparagus, prosciutto, cheese, mustard and puff pastry

Cut the puff pastry into 12 squares

Add a smear of mustard on the diagonal

Fold prosciutto and place it on top of the mustard

Now top with asparagus spears

I used 2 spears cut in half on each square

Top with a generous amount of grated cheese

Fill a small bowl with water to wet your finger tip

Bring one corner of dough up and over asparagus,

and wet the outside of the dough corner

Wet the opposite corner and bring it up and over

the first corner and press dough together

forming an open ended log

At this point you can cover and refrigerate for baking later if desired

Right before baking brush the dough with beaten egg

so it will have a glossy finish, if desired

Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes

When pastries are almost done, top with reserved cheese

and return to oven for several minutes to melt cheese

and dough is puffed and golden
