Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Goat Cheese

Happy Father’s Day to all the men out there!  I know Guinness and Kaiya love their daddy very much.  They appreciate all the extra back scratches and walks he gives them (oh and the slipping of extra treats).  This holiday is known for grilling!

I’m guilty…I’m spending a lot of time on Instagram lately.  I feel it is easy to snap a picture and see it, versus type information in on my blog.  If you don’t follow me on Instragram, click here and starting following me!  If you make a Paleo Gone Sassy creation, I would love to see it…just tag me (see how simple this Instagram thing is)!!!

Those who know me, know I like perfection.  This recipe took me a few tries to perfect because the asparagus was not cooperating with me.  Needless to say, I have perfected this recipe and it is ready for sharing!! I want to let you know, this recipe can be done in two steps.  I have cooked the asparagus prior to guests arriving and then created the ‘sandwich’ and then threw them on the grill.  You can make this dish prior to guests arriving, but I would not let it sit out longer than an hour uncooked.

For those who do dairy, you can substitute the goat cheese for cream cheese.  In our house we do Kerrygold butter and goat cheese as our ‘dairy’ options.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Goat Cheese

12 asparagus pieces
6 pieces of prosciutto
1/4 cup of goats cheese chevre
1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
2.  Place asparagus in the boiling water and cook for 8 mins.  You want it soft, but not limp.
3.  Drain from water and place them to the side.
4.  Cut your prosciutto ‘sheets’ in half.  Six pieces will turn into 12.
5.  Place 1 teaspoon of goat chevre on prosciutto and spread with a knife.
6.  Roll the asparagus up in the prosciutto with goat cheese and create a ‘sandwich’.
7.  Warm your grill to medium heat for 5 minutes.
8.  Place the asparagus rolls on the grill and cook 2 minutes for each side.
Enjoy this great salty and crunchy item!!!
