Prosciutto Asparagus

I love asparagus.  I love it steamed, roasted, in a salad or as a side.  I have seen it in restaurants with it wrapped with prosciutto, and decided to give it a try in my new toaster oven (with the convection setting).img_3732I cleaned the asparagus, and took half of a slice of the prosciutto and wrapped the bottom half of the spear.  Placed it in a oven safe dish (my small baker for the toaster oven).I baked them for about 20 minutes on 350 degrees.  I loved how even they cooked.  They turned out perfect.  Crispy, nutty, and not overcooked.  I will be making them again!!

Ham & Asparagus

A couple of other dishes for Easter were roasted asparagus, and smoked ham (in the crock pot).


I love this way of cooking vegetables.  It turns them to a nutty flavor, and somewhat smokey.  Just olive oil, salt and pepper.  Bake on 350 degrees until tender (about 25 minutes).

The ham was done in the crockpot for 3 hours on high, with 12 ounces of orange juice, and 1 cup of brown sugar.  Made a slurry (mixed it together and pour over the top of the ham.

I really enjoyed the way this was plated.
