Roasted Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Roasted Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Sometimes pork can be a bit confusing - not that we're going to complain because as long as it comes from a pig and is cooked on the Traeger, we'll eat it with a big smile. When it comes to bacon, pancetta and prosciutto, sometimes you scratch your head and think, "What's the difference between these again??" They certainly all taste delicious!

Here is your "Cliff Notes" explanation: Bacon and pancetta have quite a bit in common. They are both made from pork belly and endure a curing process but still need to be cooked before they are considered safe to eat. Bacon, however, is additionally smoked after it has been cured. So if you like a smokier flavor, use bacon instead of pancetta. Now, prosciutto is actually made from the hind leg of the porker. The curing process for prosciutto is longer and can take anywhere between months and years. After the long cure it's sliced thinly and good to eat! And there you have it!

We noticed several of you commented that you like to wrap your roasted asparagus in prosciutto. We couldn't agree more! You can snack on it while your asparagus is cooking and it's sliced paper-thin so it doesn't need to cook for very long to get crisp.

ROASTED PROSCIUTTO-WRAPPED ASPARAGUS

PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 15 to 20 minutes
RECOMMENDED PELLETS: Hickory, Oak or Mesquite
SERVES: 9

INGREDIENTS

36 medium asparagus spears (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Traeger Veggie Shake
9 thin slices prosciutto

PREPARATION

Trim the fibrous ends off the asparagus and cut each piece of prosciutto in half lengthwise.

Lay the asparagus out on a pan and drizzle with olive oil and season generously with the Traeger Veggie Shake.

Make bundles of about 4 spears out of the asparagus and wrap 2 halves of prosciutto around each bundle. The prosciutto should stick to itself but if not, secure it with a toothpick. Give the prosciutto on each bundle a little drizzle of olive oil to keep it from over-crisping.

Start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Close the lid and preheat to 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.

Lay the bundles of asparagus directly on the grill grate and cook for 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the thickness of your asparagus spears) or until the asparagus is done to your liking.

Pull the asparagus off and enjoy your pork-wrapped veggies!
