Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Breadsticks Recipe

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Breadsticks Recipe

By Kelsey Banfield

We are eating asparagus nearly anyway we can these days. I wish the season would last all year! The other day I decided to add a twist, literally, to my favorite asparagus appetizer of prosciutto wrapped asparagus. I also wrapped a layer of breadstick dough around it and baked it until lightly browned. I loved the way the dough made a solid ring around the asparagus, it contained it so well! These fun nibbles were a hit with us and our dinner guests!

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Breadsticks


  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed and blanched
  • 6 slices prosciutto
  • 1 can breadstick dough


1. Trim the asparagus and cooked it in boiling water until just tender enough to be speared with a fork. Remove it from the pot and pat dry.

2. Wrap thin slice of prosciutto around the asparagus, followed by a piece of the breadstick dough that is about 6 inches long. Twist it around the asparagus at least twice.

3. Bake the asparagus per the breadstick dough directions. Serve hot!
