Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!

Today I have prepared the recipe Asparagus with Ham for you. The classic Hollandaise sauce goes perfectly with this asparagus dish. In this article I show you how to prepare the popular sauce Hollandaise cooking video. I like this sure-fire variant of the whipped butter sauce and would like to invite you to try this variant. I use Black Forest ham for this asparagus dish because I put the wrapped asparagus spears in the oven. I would also bake boiled ham with cheese. I serve Parma ham or San Daniele ham or Spanish Serano ham cold with warm asparagus. Let yourself be seduced to cook yourself and try out this asparagus dish. Questions I answer gladly over the comment function at the end of the side. Have fun!

Preparation Time

20 Min.

Cook Time

15 Min.


For Sauce Hollandaise

1 pc Shallot
30-50 ml chili pepper dry
80 ml Water
1 tbs Vinegar
some püarsley
1/2 tsp tarragon
1 pc Bay leaf
2 pc peppercorns
250 g butter
2 pc egg yolk
some Cayenne pepper
some nutmeg
Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)
Pepper (I'm using white pepper here!)

Ham and Asparagus

300 g Black Forest ham (thinly cut into slices)
1 bunch white asparagus (You can also use green asparagus!)
Salt (I use Himalayan salt!)
brown sugar
1 tbs butter (Du kannst auch von der geklärten Butter für die Soße etwas nehmen!)
1 bunch chives (Du kannst auch Petersilie oder Kerbel verwenden!)


Sauce Hollandaise prepare

Place the stainless steel striking bowl from the mixer or another high and thick stainless steel bowl in the oven. Place the plates in the oven to serve. Heat the oven at 80-100°C hot air.

Prepare the reduction for the Hollandaise sauce: Peel the shallot, cut into fine cubes and bring to the boil with white wine, water, vinegar, parsley, tarragon, bay leaf and peppercorns. Reduce the reduction to 3-4 tablespoons, pass through a sieve and make ready.

Heat the butter for the Hollandaise sauce in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Clarify the butter to a light brown shade, then pass through a fine sieve and let it temper next to the stove (approx. 90°C).

Ham and Asparagus prepare

Peel the asparagus and cook in salted water with some sugar until al dente. Remove the asparagus and drain. Wrap the ham slices around the asparagus spears and keep warm in the oven.

Hollandaise prepare

Remove the warm stainless steel bowl from the oven. Pour the egg yolks into the bowl, let the mixer run at a high speed with the whisk, let the prepared reduction run in slowly.

Add the hot butter slowly by the spoonful, then faster. The egg yolks and the butter must emulsify immediately and combine. Season the hollandaise sauce with a little chilli or cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Let the mixer run slowly.


Take the plates out of the oven. Place the asparagus spears with the ham on the preheated plates. Pour the Hollandaise sauce over them and decorate with chives. Serve quickly! Enjoy your meal!

Important: The Hollandaise sauce can be kept warm in the oven at 90°C for about 15 minutes. Then simply whip again… Put a thin slice of butter on the sauce, so the sauce does not draw any skin when warm!
