Prosciutto-wrapped asparagus

 

I’ve seen this on Pinterest. You can also use bacon instead of prosciutto. In order to be Whole30-friendly, the meat cannot have sugar or additives. Another challenge I’ve had during grocery shopping is finding Whole30-friendly deli meat. Luckily I was able to find some at Trader Joe’s.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of prosciutto (or bacon). I believe this pack had 8 strips
  • 1 lb of asparagus
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. Lay a sheet of non-stick aluminum foil onto a cookie sheet.
  3. Wash asparagus. I also chopped off about half an inch of the bottom of the stalk. 
  4. Arrange asparagus on top of the foiled cookie sheet.
  5. Drizzle olive oil on top of the asparagus. Season asparagus with salt and pepper. To coat the asparagus evenly, you can roll the stalks back and forth.
  6. Lay one strip of prosciutto on a cutting board, length-wise and slightly diagonal. Place 4 asparagus stalks on top of the bottom corner of the prosciutto. Roll the asparagus into the prosciutto tightly. (This is where a picture would have been helpful. Sorry!) Return wrapped asparagus to the cookie sheet.
  7. Repeat until all of the prosciutto and asparagus are used.
  8. Place cookie sheet on the bottom rack of the broiler. Cook for 8-10 minutes.
