- Wrap 2 slices of prosciutto around 5 slices of asparagus –make two bundles.
- Place the asparagus on a baking sheet and place in preheated oven to 400 F and bake for 10-12 minutes until prosciutto is crispy and asparagus is tender.
- Meanwhile, make the hollandaise by pulsing the egg yolks, lemon juice, cayenne and salt in a food processor for 20-30 seconds. Slowly drizzle in the butter while processing until all the butter is incorporated and the hollandaise is nice and thick and creamy.
