Recipe Type: appetizer, asparagus, Italian Prosciutto ham, Boursin cheese, mustard, roll up hors d'oeuvre

Prep Time: 50 min
Total Time: 50 min
Yield: 30 appetizers


30 fresh Asparagus spears (do not use pencil size)
6 ounces sliced Prosciutto, cut slices in half lengthwise
5.2 ounce package
Boursin cheese, softened
1/4 cup honey mustard
freshly cracked black pepper


Snap tough ends off asparagus spears; using a vegetable peeler peel spears one inch up from the bottom and trim ends at an angle for a gourmet presentation. Put them in a deep skillet of boiling salted water for approximately 2 minutes or until tender crisp (al dente), poke with a sharp knife to test for doneness. Do not overcook. Carefully drain, rinse with cold running water and blot dry on paper towels.

Prosciutto strips on a flat surface, spread each strip with 1/2 teaspoon Boursin cheese and 1/4 teaspoon honey mustard, sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper. Lay one asparagus spear on top Boursin cheese and mustard at a 90 degree angle, roll up the prosciutto. Arrange wrapped asparagus on a platter and serve.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
