fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
finely chopped chives
white bread, crusts removed
grated Parmesan cheese, divided
We had these with a bowl of soup for lunch today, and they were yummy. I had really thin spears, so I quickly blanched them until they just started to get tender, and then plunged them into a bowl of ice water. After you've rolled them up, they bake for about ten minutes, so be careful not to initially cook the asparagus to mush. Ours had the perfect "crunch" that we like in fresh asparagus. I could see adding some parmesan to the cream cheese mixture to enhance flavor even more. Cut in half, these would be great appetizers/finger food for a buffet table. We're trying to enjoy as much spring asparagus as we can because it's so flavorful and fresh this time of year. Very nice recipe.
These are delishious, however, instead of making them with bread, I make them with crescent rolls. Every one loves them this way. Do not roll the crescent rolls out though, Then are great just the way they come outof the package.
I had some asparagus left over, so I made these roll ups tonight to go along with my Cream of Pimiento Soup. I like them because they are different. They would also be great for a tea party, a ladies' luncheon, or a shower. If I made them for a shower, I would lay the asparagus so that a tip was on each end. Then I would cut them in half.
I made this as written but because I made parm crisps with a "smear" of goat cheese I left off the parm on the top,BIG mistake. Don't leave it out makes the dish
