Entertaining guests in my home is one of my favorite things. There is no better feeling than being able to prepare a spread for people to enjoy. There is a lot of prep for entertaining people, including creating a menu. To make the process easier, I created a list of my favorite go-to recipes for easy selection. When I create a menu with an appetizer, I like to include this Asparagus Prosciutto Tart from Chef Michelle Miller of Sunkissed Kitchen. This appetizer quickly became a fan favorite and a staple in my menus. Whether you’re looking for a little pick-me-up during the week or hosting guests, we’ve got you covered with this recipe. Asparagus Prosciutto Tarts are cooked to perfection in Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven in under 30 minutes!

Asparagus Prosciutto Tarts
Dazzle your cocktail party guests with these beautiful puff pastry tarts, topped with prosciutto and asparagus. We love these with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, but you omit or sub your favorite cheese in place of that here. Puff pastry refrigerates well, so if you make a batch, you can cut it up and prepare appetizers like this quickly.
- 1 recipe puff pastry dough
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
- 16 slices prosciutto
- 12 spears asparagus cut lengthwise in half
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- Roll the puff pastry out into a 16 x 16 square. Cut the pastry into 16 even squares, approximately 4″ x 4″ each. You can also make a smaller appetizer if desired.
- Add 8 squares to each of 2 lined baking trays.
- Brush the edges of each square with egg white, and then sprinkle with coarse salt.
- Top each square with 1 slice of prosciutto and 3 spears of asparagus, trimming the asparagus as necessary to fit on the tarts. Sprinkle the top of each tart with parmesan cheese.
- Preheat the Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven to the Steam Bake / Bread setting at 375º F for 15 minutes.
- Bake the tarts, and serve while still warm.
For a varied presentation, try cutting the dough into long triangles, and rolling the dough around the fillings, like a crescent.
