Scrumptious Sides and Salads (and Appetizers!), Vol 4: Asparagus Roll-Ups

This great side/appetizer comes from my littlest sister, Jessica! Jess made these awesome tasty creations as an appetizer to our Mother's Day Celebration. They look innocuous enough, but I could NOT stop at just one! I think I ate more than my fair share...

These are impressive as an appetizer, but I think they could be served as a side dish, since it involves veggies.

Scrumptious Sides and Salads (and Appetizers!)

Asparagus Roll-Ups

  • 1 block of cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh chvies
  • 8 slices of bacon cooked and crumbed/cut up
  • parmesan cheese
  • butter
  • 16 asparagus stalks
  • 16 slices of bread from a loaf (Jess used Wheat Bread)

Put asaparagus onto skillet with water for 6-8 minutes.

Mix cream cheese, chives, bacon into a bowl.

Use a rolling pin and flatten the bread completely. Remove crusts.

Spread cream cheese mixture onto bread. Top with asapragus (if too big, cut in half, and but both pieces onto the bread), and roll up.

Melt butter and drizzle over asparagus roll-ups. Finish by sprinkling with parmesan cheese.

Bake at 400ø for 12 minutes until crisp/golden.

Thank you, Jess! They were delicious. If you try out Jessica's recipe, leave a comment or email me - we'd love to know how it turns out. If you have a similar or slightly varied version, pass it along for me to post for the rest of the community!
