About once a month my Mum and I have an all appetizer dinner. We call them our "tidbit parties." I make 3 or 4 different appetizers. We turn on some good music. In the summer we do them outside under the electric stars and sometimes friends or family will join us but in the chilly months it's mostly just us two.
This super easy, weight loss surgery friendly appetizer is a perfect addition to a "tidbit party" menu.
Shelly's Prosciutto-Wrapped Roasted Asparagus
24 Asparagus Spears (thinner the better)
8 slices Prosciutto di Parma, sliced thin (find in Italian Delis, better Supermarkets, Trader Joe's)
Snap off the woody ends of the asparagus. Wrap 3 stems with a slice of prosciutto, and roast in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
We serve them with Shelly's Feta & Onion Dip or Pesto Yogurt Dipping Sauce.
Variations: smear the prosciutto with cream cheese before wrapping asparagus. Short on time? This appetizer is also yummy uncooked.
It's also a pretty elegant breakfast served with soft-boiled eggs for dipping. Perfect for me since I don't do toast.
Shelly's Feta & Onion Dip
1/2 cup Fage Greek Yogurt (I use 2%)
1/4 cup Tomato Basil Feta Cheese, crumbles
1 Tablespoon storebought Pesto
2 Green Onions, diced
a few twists of Black Pepper
Whiz all ingredients in a mini food processor till well combined.
