Like I told y’all last week, there’s just something about Christmastime that makes me wanna cook up all variations of pork I can think of.
From wrapping dates in bacon to coating ground pork in almond flour, I love pork. It’s juicy. It’s salty. It can crisp up like nobody’s business.
It’s just what the holiday season needs to balance all that sugar.
Just picture it; what better way to balance out that Paleo German Chocolate Pecan Pie than a few nibbles of these salty morsels?
And this recipe will make for a fabulous savory addition to your upcoming Christmas brunch or even New Year’s Eve shindig.
Why? Well, these lovelies-
Need I say more?
No, I think not.
So I’ve been holding out on y’all with this one.
Like, for years.
I’m so sorry to have withheld such porky perfection from y’all.
But sharing is caring, after all.
And that’s why I’m sharing this CRAZY SIMPLE appetizer/breakfast/brunch munchies with y’all today.
It’s a little recipe redemption.
And this one uses 4 basic ingredients: asparagus, prosciutto, coconut oil, and a dash of salt and pepper (and MAYBE a hair of grassfed cheese)...just leave that last one off if you’re not down with a lil dairy.
Not only is that a simple grocery list, it’s a simple recipe, too!
How easy peasy paleo is this, y’all?
Why else do these rock?
Because asparagus is a nutrition rock star…see…
While prosciutto isn’t the healthiest protein on the block (largely due to its high sodium content), I like to think all of that nutritional goodness of asparagus cancels that high sodium out…
Lastly, these can be prepped ahead of time.
Just complete the steps I just shared, stopping at the roasting part.
Then, just toss those spears in the oven for 20ish minutes and you’re good to go.
Personally, I love these for breakfast with a few fried eggs. But, of course, they’re delightful anytime of day!
