Puff Pastry Wrapped Asparagus

These cute and happy asparagus bundles scream Spring to us. Plus, they’re actually really easy if you use a frozen puff pastry.

What is Puff Pastry?

Puff pastry is a light and flaky pastry used for pie crusts. It is full of butter to get the flaky layers. Because of this, the layers puff when it is baked. The difference from pie crust is the crust is much thicker and sturdier when baked, while still having a bit of flake.

Puff Pastry Wrapped Asparagus

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper (#1153).
  2. Out a lightly floured surface, roll the puff pastry out to a large rectangle about twice its size. Square off edges and cut into 8 squares or rectangles.
  3. Toss asparagus in avocado oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
  4. To make the bundles, take a square of puff pastry and brush with egg wash. Place slice of pancetta on top, followed by 1-4 stalks of asparagus (depending on size and how much you want) and parmesan cheese. Wrap pancetta around asparagus, then wrap with the puff pastry. Make sure the puff pastry overlaps enough to seal- simply push the dough into itself. Brush puff pastry with more egg wash.
  5. Bake until puff pastry is golden and puffed, about 12 minutes. Serve immediately.

Note: You can use bacon(#3298), Canadian bacon (#4047), or deli ham in place of the pancetta, if desired.
