How to make it

  • Wash the Asparagus, trim the tough ends then parboil for about 10 minutes drain, cool and chop coarsely. Chop the prosciutto into small pieces Combine the chopped asparagus, ham, garlic, good shot of Parmesan, eggs, salt & pepper, mix well and form into patties about the size of a hamburger. Put your breadcrumbs in a dish and gently place the patties in the crumbs and spoon crumbs over to coat and pat gently to make it stick. (Using sausage, I cooked it up ahead of time)
  • Fry in hot olive oil till golden season with a little more S&P and serve hot.
  • My note: I didn't think the patties had cooked long enough as I was browning them, so transferred to a baking sheet and finished them in the oven for a few minutes.
  • Roberto’s notes: Mom used to put a few drops of vinegar on hers I preferred a little tobasco sauce I could never get Grandma to add crushed red pepper to the patties Wats a matta you? you father won'ta mangiarre it if it'sa too spicy!"

  • Leftover idea: I had 2 patties left and they made great sliders – with a little Smoked Ketchup (see recipe)

    Thought I'd better add a note of caution. A friend made these patties yesterday and had trouble keepng the patties from crumbling wihile browning. I would suggest browning a 'test' patty first and if they don't hold together, add another egg to the remaining mixture. Also, allowing the patties to rest in the fridge will allow them to congeal better before browning.
