Asparagus en croute is not as simple as it sounds. My first attempt was with "fresh" asparagus from Walmart - maybe not fresh after all. My second attempt was with Birdseye Frozen Asparagus Spears (how can you go wrong with fresh frozen??). I wanted party snacks about 2" long so each guest would take two - four bites to consume. In both cases, the taste was great but the asparagus would not break on my bite and I would end up with an entire spear pulled out and dangling down to my chin - not a great come-on effect at a social gathering! In both cases, the pastry (egg-washed) was placed in a 380 deg F oven for 20 minutes, egg washed again, and given an additional 10 minutes for browning. BTW - there was a slice of prosciutto, some garlic and pepper in each wrap. What's wrong? Cooking time? Cooking temperature?
