Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus With Lemon Herb Sauce #EasterRecipes

 This week I am joining in with  blogger friends to share Easter recipes all week long!  What could be more Spring to your Easter or Brunch meal than Asparagus? and this prosciutto wrapped asparagus with lemon herb sauce is just extra special! Your guests will be licking their fingers and their plates clean!
Bacon Wrapped Aspagargus

I like to bundle them in packets of 3 or 4 spears wrapped in each sheet of prosciutto, but you can trim down the prosciutto and individually wrap each spear separately too!

The Lemon Herb Cream Sauce is just divine! My husband likes to spread some onto his ham as well as the asparagus, it is rich in ingredients, but light as well with the lemon and herbs, so it doesn't overpower the saltiness of the prosciutto or the sweetness crispiness of the asparagus.

The individually wrapped version would make a perfect appetizer for a party and if you make the lemon herb sauce a bit thinner into a dipping sauce.. it would be for a pre dinner party appetizer.

Here's how I make mine.
