Prosciutto Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles

Stop what you are doing and add these Prosciutto & Asparagus Pastry Puffs to your menu. These things are crazy good! I don’t even like asparagus and I ate a ton of these bundles. Puff pastry, dijon mustard, prosciutto, asparagus, and gruyere cheese. O-M-YUM! We served these as a side dish, but they would also make a great appetizer. Just serve them! They are ridiculously delicious!

Prosciutto & Asparagus Pastry Puffs

These pastry puffs are super simple to make. Cut two puff pastry sheets into 9 squares each. Spread some dijon mustard diagonally on each square. Top with half a slice of prosciutto, two or three asparagus spears, and gruyere cheese. Pull the corners to the middle. Place the puffs on a baking sheet. Brush the puffs with an egg wash and bake.

  • To keep the edges together during cooking :
    • Don’t overfill the puff pastry
    • Wet the edges of the puff pastry with water to help seal the pastry together
    • Can use toothpicks to help keep the edges together
    • If the puff pastry does open up during cooking, don’t panic. As soon as you take them out of the oven, gently press the edges together and they will stay together just fine after cooling. I had to do that with some of the puffs in this batch.
  • I used two bunches of asparagus because I wanted to use just the tops of the spears. If you use the whole spear, you can probably make this recipe with only one bunch of asparagus.
  • I used Gruyere cheese. Feel free to use any cheese that you prefer – swiss or gouda would be delicious too.
  • Can Prosciutto Asparagus Pastry Puffs be made in advance? Yes! You can assemble the pastry puff ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.
  • Can Prosciutto Asparagus Pastry Puffs be frozen? Yes! You can assemble the pastry puff ahead of time and freeze them unbaked for later. To bake after freezing, simply add a few minutes to the cooking time below.
