Roasted Asparagus Wrapped with Serrano Ham (Jamón Serrano)

Asapargus WrappedThis is one of my favorite recipes when I want an appetizer that’s simple and quick to make, looks nice and tastes delicious. Roasted asparagus with Serrano ham is a wonderful appetizer idea for the holidays. Although I love Serrano ham for this recipe, if you don’t find it, just use prosciutto. Your guests are going to love you!

You can buy Serrano ham online at La Tienda

    They look very nice, and if I could I would pick them right off the page and have a few with my tea right now! You would be proud, I made the egg dish I saw on here, came out nice and I did it again, but with a different recipe of my own…love your site…

    I don’t cook asparagus so often as it’s not so common in Turkey. It’s great to learn this new and easy recipe. They look like a great appetizer.

    MMM! We made this a few times this summer, but used regular bacon (wrapped around 2-3 spears depending on their size). Over a campfire or BBQ added a wonderful smokiness! I have never heard of serrano ham before, I will have to keep my eyes open for it.

    Wow, this sounds delicious. Although Greece produces the best asparagus, it all goes for export so we rarely get some in our markets. I would love to try this if I do get some.
