My brother and his girlfriend Katie made these this weekend, and then Brett made some for Kevin and me tonight:) I never eat asparagus, so I think it was his way of getting me to eat it. He cut the recipe down tonight-but the original Asparagus Roll-Up recipe is below. I even loved them! Yummy. Plus, I got in a new veggie:)
16 fresh asparagus spears
16 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Place asparagus in a skillet with a small amount of water; cook until crisp and tender, about 6-8 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Flatten bread with a rolling pin. Combine the cream cheese, bacon and chives; spread 1 tablespoonful on each slice of bread. Top with an asparagus spear. Roll up tightly; place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Brush with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cut roll-ups in half. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Right out of the oven!
