What can I say?
This was pretty, whimsical, and fun to eat. It made you hungry. It was like... like an appetizer! It appetized.
Roll some really fat asparagus around in a pan of butter until they soften (we cut them in half, crosswise). Brown spots are encouraged. No salt, though.
Because once the spears are custard-tender, you're going to cut a lengthwise slit and fill the pocket with skinny slivers of Gruyere, and cheese is plenty-o-salty.
Also, you're going to wrap your confection in pieces of Lady Gaga's meat dress. No, edit that. Pieces of fantastic prosciutto, with so much flavor already in it, you don't need anything else.
Return to pan, but try to keep the slit side up so your cheese doesn't melt all over the pan.
Yep, just heat'n'serve. Simple, really. We laughed when we weren't groaning with pleasure.
