    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 12
    1 (17.3-oz.) pkg. frozen puff pastry sheets (2 ct.), thawed
    Hy-Vee all-purpose flour, for dusting
    1 lbs. asparagus, trimmed and cut into 4-in. pieces
    2 tbsp. Gustare Vita olive oil
    ¼ tsp. coarsely ground Hy-Vee black pepper
    2 Hy-Vee large egg whites
    1 tbsp. water
    2 tsp. Culinary Tours cream-style horseradish sauce
    2 tsp. refrigerated garlic paste
    2 (3-oz.) pkg. Culinary Tours prosciutto
    1 (8-oz.) pkg. Fontina cheese, shredded (2 cups)

    Things To Grab

    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Large baking pan
    • Parchment paper
    • Large bowl
    • Small bowl
    • Pastry brush


    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper; spray with nonstick spray.

    2. Roll out each puff pastry sheet to a 12x9-in. rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Cut each rectangle into 6 (4x3-in.) rectangles. Place pastry rectangles on prepared baking pan.

    3. Place asparagus in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with pepper; toss to coat. Set asparagus aside.

    4. Whisk together egg whites and water in a small bowl; set aside.

    5. Stir together horseradish sauce and garlic paste in a small bowl. Spread mixture onto each pastry square. Place 1 slice of prosciutto lengthwise onto each; top with cheese and 2 or 3 asparagus pieces.

    6. Brush 2 opposite side corners of each with a small amount of the egg white mixture. Lift corners of the puff pastry up and over asparagus spears; press together to seal.

    7. Brush filled puff pastries with remaining egg white mixture. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until pastry is puffed and golden. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
