    • 8 thick asparagus tips
    • 120g Manchego cheese, cut into 8 thin wedges
    • 4 slices ( approx.) 50g jamon Serrano or Iberico, cut in half lengthways
    • 11/2 tbsp olive oil



    1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160 Fan/ Gas Mark 4.

    2. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking parchment. Whilst the oven is preheating, place the asparagus in a large frying pan and cover with boiling water from the kettle.

    3. Bring up to the boil and boil for 1 minute. Drain carefully (to prevent damaging the tips) and pat dry on kitchen paper.

    4. Place a piece of cheese on top of each tip of asparagus and secure by wrapping with a strip of ham tightly. Place on the baking sheet.

    5. Brush all over with oil and bake for 1-2 minutes until the cheese has just melted. Serve warm.
