"When I was a kid my sister and I LOVED when my mom made these. We would always argue about the order the ingredients should go on the toast. (Of course, I'm submitting this in the order I liked.) It was also a good way to get us to eat asparagus."

my roommate is extremely nutrition conscious so this was a great recipe that i could make for her.
I didn't like these. I've had asparagus a few tiomes before at resturants and liked it, so I thought that I'd like these too. I guess it's just the canned asparagus that put me off. If it was fresh asparagus cooked nicely then added to these I'm sure they would taste a lot better.
This was really good! However, after reading reviews I decided to use fresh, cooked asparagus rather than canned. I can't imagine this tasting good with canned asparagus.
For someone who never seems to have enough time to eat, let alone cook, I have to say this is a great recipe. It's quick, it's delicious, and I had all the ingredients just laying around. I did add artichoke and parmesan as well, and I used a tiny bit of mayonnaise because the sandwich looked a little dry. As it turns out, it really wasn't as dry as it looked, but the mayo was a good addition.
I made this with fresh asparagus that I simmered for a few minutes in salted boiling water, and then sliced in half. The cheese and bacon was, of course, delicious, but I didn't think the asparagus was a good addition. It was also pretty unwieldy to eat. I'm glad I tried it, but I wouldn't make it again. Thanks anyway.
I took these sandwiches to my sisters bridal shower and they were a hit. I followed the recipe just like it is and the only thing I would recommend is to either serve them immediately or heat them in the microwave right before you serve them. When I served them they were pretty cold and it changed the sandwich a little. Overall though they were wonderful and full of flavor.
I made these exactly as suggested and was not impressed. I love asparagus, but it was not good in these sandwiches. Canned asparagus stinks, I know, but I have a feeling that they wouldn't have been good with fresh aspargus either.
I thought this was good! To lighten it up a bit I used turkey bacon which to me is a GREAT substitute and I didn't have the sourdough bread so I used some rye. Also used fresh asparagus. Great little sandwich and I didn't even miss the mayo! Thanks!
