"These roll-ups are simply divine. A friend shared the recipe after serving them at a church brunch, where they disappeared fast. They make a unique finger food, a side dish at supper, or a lovely lunch served with soup." — smbassref

thick fresh asparagus spears
multi-grain bread, crusts removed
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
minced fresh chives
grated Parmesan cheese
I made this recipe to go along with stuffed manicotti noodles but made a few changes. Instead of sliced bread I used refrigerated bread stick dough and forgot to add the butter and parmesan cheese on top. Was flavorful, but a little dry, I had left over cream cheese mixture, so next time I will go heavier.
Similar to a recipe I've made but skipped the parmesan and added one small container of blue cheese. Great party pleaser.
I made these according to the recipe - using whole grain bread, which worked great. I think the addition of some blue cheese to the cream cheese mixture would be awesome. They are a little fussy to make and if I were making them for a large group I would use my pasta roller to flatten the bread and then probably cut the bread in half. They were pretty filling and although tasty they are more of a side dish than a appetizer as written. There is no need to blanch the asparagus. 10 minutes at 400 - 425 perfect and you will have tender but not mushy asparagus.
Great recipe. I used refrigerator crescent rolls instead of bread. And added cheddar cheese. Very yummy!
Delicious. My family does not care for veggies, but they loved this recipe. I will definitely make this again. We used crescent rolls that one of the reviews mentioned. It was nice and buttery.
