Parish and I love cooking together when the timing is right and we have a good recipe. Now, we have a lot of banter going on in the kitchen. If you know our personalities, you know what I’m talking about. No matter your communication patterns and ways in the kitchen, we would encourage you to research a recipe you’ve never tried before, go shopping for the ingredients together, and cook the recipe to enjoy as a couple. And, for just a moment let that stuff go. Enjoy the differences and laugh. You could do this as a family, too. I think back on the conversations while cooking, the grocery shopping that lead us to a new store, and the enjoyment of tasting our accomplishments. I have a tendency to get distracted and not measure right or skip a step. Imagine my joy and humor when I discovered he had put the prosciutto on before the feta. We also laughed about trying to find the prosciutto in a small town and the recommendation of a shop owner to go to Conner’s in Buxton. A simple ask led us on an adventure! These are so delicious! Enjoy! Let me know if you make them. We could not find pastry puff so used the pie crust that you roll out (premade). It turned out great! The best part was watching the sunset while cooking. We prayed aloud our blessings and gratitude for the day and God’s faithfulness.
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Onion & Herb seasoning blend
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 3 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or deli ham
- 24 thick fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
- 1. Preheat oven to 425°. Mix butter, seasoning blend and garlic salt. Unfold puff pastry sheets onto a lightly floured surface. Spread each with 1-1/2 tablespoons butter mixture and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Top with prosciutto, pressing lightly to adhere.
- 2. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut each sheet into 12 strips (about 1/2 in. wide). Wrap each strip, filling side in, around an asparagus spear; place on parchment-lined baking sheets.
- 3. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
