This Easy Keto Grilled Asparagus recipe wrapped in Provolone Cheese and Prosciutto makes it the Best Grilled Asparagus you’ve ever had! It’s gluten free, low carb and keto approved!

When it comes to easy side dishes, I’m all about quick and tasty these days, especially in the hot summer months! Recently I shared my Grilled Cheesy Bacon Hasselback Zucchini and it’s been blowing up the internet because it’s so easy and versatile!

My hubby is an asparagus lover, but to be honest with you, I’m not that much into asparagus. I actually prefer green beans! My favorite are my Oven Fried Garlic Parmesan Green Beans! But the hubby requested some asparagus and so I obliged, but made it a little bit more spectacular than just roasting them. And who doesn’t love a little gooey cheese and crispy meat on the outside of a veggie, right? Grilling asparagus makes it quick and easy and doesn’t heat up your kitchen, but feel free to simply roast when the weather isn’t great to grill. 

Prosciutto is an Italian, thinly sliced dry-cured ham, usually served cold and uncooked, often wrapped with fresh cantaloupe, or just on a charcuterie board as an appetizer. If you would rather make this recipe with bacon you certainly can swap and it will be just as delicious. 

Here’s my video to show how easy this recipe really is!

 

Perfect all summer long or in the winter bake in the oven!

Of course if you aren’t into grilling you can simply roast the asparagus and then wrap them and then broil a few minutes until the cheese is all melted and gooey!

But I highly recommend grilled if you are cooking some protein out there on the grill anyway. No heating the house in these warm summer months is key for me!

My hubby declared these the best darn asparagus he’s ever had! And said, “These are even good COLD!” So that says a lot from a picky man!

Enjoy!
