Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Boursin

There are just three ingredients in this recipe for scrumptious prosciutto wrapped aspargus. It does take some time to roll up these beauties, but they will disappear fast.

The key is not to over cook the asparagus. You want it to be bright green, bendable, but still slightly crisp. And if you’re making these for a crowd, allot enough time to smear on the Boursin, a soft cheese spread with garlic and herbs, and roll these up. It’s not difficult, but a bit fiddly with having to cut and separate the prosciutto as well as apply the cheese spread.

Easy, Elegant 3-Ingredient Appetizer

This Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus with Boursin one of my go-to appetizers! First of all, I don’t need a shopping list. Everyone can remember this recipe. And it receives rave reviews every single time! I promise.

It’s an ideal addition to a crudite platter, and perfect in the spring and summer when asparagus is at it’s peak and inexpensive. A container of Boursin will most likely be enough for 36 or more spears. I’ve updated some old photos as this was posted in the first few months of my blogging career over 7 years ago. I thought it was worth pinning and resharing. I bet you’ll be glad I did!

I’m also a huge fan of having a Cheat Sheet for Entertaining to help with those last minute details before your guests arrive. By the way, I love serving this Asparagus Wrapped Prosciutto with Ina’s Sun-dried Tomato Dip which is an excellent dip for a platter of vibrant vegetables. Both are perfect for your next gathering!

  19. Hi Liz – these are gorgeous! Love them – bright and pretty. I know the boursin with prosciutto makes them extra special. Hope your renovation is still going great. We just started ours and I have no kitchen right now, but a gas propane camp stove from a friend that my husband won’t allow in the house. Fire hazard. Since the snow is still on the ground outside, it makes for some chilly cooking. But better than nothing! xo
