Ham Wrapped Asparagus Recipe

Pin It
This is one of my very favorite recipes for an appetizer!  It is so easy and tastes delicious.  Asparagus is an absolute favorite of mine and when you wrap it up in a little ham you have an amazing flavor sensation that will get you coming back for more.  These are a great appetizer or side dish for the holidays.  Try them, you won't be sorry.  My Mom has made these for years but she wasn't home to ask how she makes them so I referred  to this site for instructions.

You will need Asparagus( I find that the larger stalks are better in this recipe), Ham, and Toothpicks.

Wash your Asparagus and trim or snap off the tough bottom part.

Cut the Ham in half.

Wrap the ham around the Asparagus and secure with a Toothpick.

Drizzle a bit of Canola Oil over the top.  Bake at 400 Degrees for about 7 minutes.  Then flip them over and go another 7 minutes.

1 Lb Asparagus spears
1 Lb Sliced Deli Ham
Canola Oil for drizzling

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Wash your Asparagus and either cut or snap off the tough ends.  Depending on the size of your Ham you may want to cut it in half.  Roll a slice of Ham around every Asparagus spear using a toothpick to secure the ham in place.

Line a Baking sheet with Parchment and arrange the Asparagus on the parchment.  Drizzle a little Canola Oil over the spears.  I didn't use much maybe a TBSP but I doubt I used that much.

Place the baking sheet in the hot oven and roast for about 7 minutes on the first side.  Turn the spears over and roast another 5-7 minutes.  You want the Asparagus to be nice and tender and the Ham to be browned.
