Asparagus, Prosciutto and Herbed Goat Cheese Galettes

Asparagus, Prosciutto and Herbed Goat Cheese Galettes

Four galettes

Simple and elegant, this crispy and savory galette is loaded with fresh asparagus, prosciutto and goat cheese.  This is a classic recipe that comes in  handy in the springtime when asparagus is in season. It is also a great entree to serve at brunch when you are looking for something that is light and flavorful. This recipe can be easily doubled for a group.  All ingredients can be prepared the day ahead and assembled and baked on the day of your event. A bright crisp Rosé will bring plenty of flavor and acidity and enhance the savory notes.
