About The Recipe

It is officially appetizer season! I know I said this before, but when it comes to appetizers recipes, especially compared to dessert or dinner recipes, we are really lacking on them. So, my mom and I, about a month or so ago, decided that we were going to make some of the best recipes we’ve put on the blog this year, but not only that, include some delicious appetizers!

We’ve never really been huge appetizer people unless we had a party or it was the holiday’s. It’s been a real challenge for us to come up with easy, but crowd-pleasing appetizers.

We even went through our old family cookbook for inspiration! We didn’t really find a whole lot in there, other than a few ideas for Christmas desserts. To say we were a bit stumped would be an understatement.

Luckily, one of my brothers favorite foods is roasted asparagus. We had some in the fridge that we bought a little while ago for him, but haven’t done anything with yet. We also keep puff pastry in the freezer nowadays because you never know what we might wanna make.

The idea kind of started there. My mom mentioned making pastry bundles when she was catering, so we went from there. We needed something other than asparagus and puff pastry.

We went through our fridge and found some brie! Another staple in our fridge. But, the recipe was still missing something. We wanted a strong flavor to really bring something to this appetizer.

So, we headed to the store! There, we found some prosciutto and knew that’s exactly what we needed.

After we got home, we went to work immediately! The hardest part was waiting for them to bake.

We honestly ate these just for dinner! They’re that good. Every bite is cheesy, salty, with almost a nuttiness coming from the roasted asparagus. All-together, it creates a delicious appetizer that everyone will want another bite of!

How To Make Asparagus Prosciutto and Brie Pastry Bundles

Step 1: Make egg wash

In a small bowl, whisk together egg and water until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2: Cut and roll

Cut pastry into 9 equal squares.

On a lightly floured surface, roll each square to 1/16 inch thickness.

Step 3: Assemble

Top each square with 1 slice prosciutto. Place 1 slice of brie and 4-6 asparagus spears at an angle on top of prosciutto.

Fold top right corner of pastry over asparagus. Fold bottom left corner over bundle and tuck under.

Step 4: Freeze

Use a small pastry brush to brush egg wash over all exposed pastry. Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes.

Step 5: Bake

Bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Make sure to use thin asparagus spears! If they’re thick, they will not cook properly.
  • The puff pastry needs to be rolled out on a lightly floured surface.
  • You can cut the rind off of the brie, if desired.
  • If the puff pastry isn’t wanting to stick to itself, you can use a small amount of the egg wash to help stick it together.
  • Don’t skip the freezing period! The pastry will be too warm to bake immediately and it needs to be cold to puff properly.
  • This recipe needs to be served warm, right out of the oven. This way, the brie is still melty and everything is warm and delicious!
