November 22, 2018

This faster, easier version of prosciutto-wrapped asparagus, presented by President’s Choice, will disappear quickly from your holiday dinner table.

Roasted Asparagus With Crispy Prosciutto Chips

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

Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). 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. 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. 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. 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.
