INGREDIENTS NEEDED

Frozen Puff Pastry Dough: You will need 1 package containing 2 sheets of frozen puff pastry dough to make these prosciutto asparagus puff pastry bundles. Make sure to thaw your dough according to the package directions before you want to start.

Prosciutto Slices: You will need 1 slice of prosciutto per bundle, 12 total, for this recipe.

Swiss Cheese Slices: You will need 1 slice of swiss cheese per bundle, 12 total, for this recipe.

Fresh Asparagus: You will need 1 bundle, about 1 pound, of fresh asparagus. If you have a choice, I recommend selecting thinner stalks of asparagus for this recipe because they are more tender and will create a better bite.

Egg: to do an egg wash on your puff pastry, creating a golden brown exterior

OVERVIEW: HOW TO MAKE PROSCIUTTO ASPARAGUS PUFF PASTRY BUNDLES

  1. Preheat the oven and prepare the baking sheet: Preheat your oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Roll out thawed puff pastry: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the thawed puff pastry, 1 sheet at a time, until the rectangle is dough is about doubled in size. Cut each sheet of puff pastry into 6 equal sized squares.
  3. Fill the puff pastry with prosciutto, swiss, and asparagus: On each square of puff pastry layer your toppings. First place 1 slice of prosciutto folded in half to fit on the square, then 1 slice of swiss cheese, and finally 3-4 stalks of asparagus at a diagonal.
  4. Fold the filled puff pastry squares into your bundle shape: Fold one corner of your puff pastry square across your asparagus, then fold the opposite corner over the top. Lightly pull that top corner of puff pastry to just tuck under the bottom of the bundle, and lightly press the palm of your hand on top of the bundle to help seal the dough. Once rolled, transfer your bundle to your lined baking sheet.
  5. Egg wash: Using a pastry brush, egg wash any exposed puff pastry.
  6. Bake: Bake your prosciutto asparagus puff pastry bundles for 14-16 minutes, until the puff pastry is golden brown.
  7. Serve immediately. Prosciutto asparagus puff pastry bundles are best served immediately.
  8. Store leftovers: if any puff pastry bundles remain, store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. Best reheated in the oven.

expert tips

Where do I get frozen puff pastry? Look for frozen puff pastry dough in your grocery store’s frozen section, often by frozen pies or frozen pie crusts.

How to thaw frozen puff pastry: The best method for thawing frozen puff pastry is to put it in the refrigerator for approximately 4 hours (up to overnight). The frozen puff pastry dough package will also outline directions of how to thaw the dough. Some frozen puff pastry brands suggest thawing your puff pastry on your counter for 30-40 minutes.

How to work with frozen puff pastry dough: While your dough needs to be thawed (to avoid cracking), you want to keep it cold. Warm puff pastry is very difficult to work with (it is stretchy and super sticky) and also won’t puff up as much during the cooking process. You also risk losing the butter that’s folded into the pastry if it gets too warm (the butter could melt onto your pan instead of staying in the dough). When you are ready to prep your thawed dough, remove it from the fridge, and unfold the dough onto a floured work surface. Lightly roll out your puff pastry with a floured rolling pin to remove the creases and create an even layer.

What other kinds of cheeses would be good in this puff pastry recipe? If swiss cheese isn’t your jam, no worries! Gouda, gruyere, or brie would all be excellent options. Parmesan would also taste great but will not be as melty.

I have leftover puff pastry bundles, what’s the best way to reheat them? The oven is definitely the best way to reheat these prosciutto asparagus puff pastry bundles. Reheat in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes (or until warm).

    Made this recipe tonight. Easy to make; however, prosciutto is not carried in our grocery store, but thinly sliced ham worked quite well. We really enjoyed it.

      I’m so glad you liked it! And ham is a great swap-out, way to use what’s available near you! Thank you for making my recipe.
