  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. When bacon is cool, crumble and set aside in a bowl.
  5. Place asparagus spears into a large skillet and pour in about 1 inch of water. Place over medium heat, cover the skillet, and simmer asparagus until bright green and slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Remove asparagus and set aside.
  6. Place cream cheese and chives into the bowl with bacon and stir to evenly combine.
  7. Roll each bread slice with a rolling pin on a work surface until the slices are thin and flat.
  8. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over each slice of bread.
  9. Center 2 asparagus spears on a bread slice, and roll the slice around the asparagus into a tidy and compact cylinder. Place seam side down onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  10. Brush each roll with melted butter and sprinkle each with about 1 1/2 teaspoon Parmesan cheese.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden brown and hot, 10 to 12 minutes.

I was surprised that I didn't like this. May be a good way to get kids to eat asparagus. Most likely won't make again.

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

I have to admit I was surprised at what a hit this was too! LOL I confess I did not stick to to the recipe, but used the foundation, which was clearly solid, thus the 5 stars. My version also...

Made this for Recipe Group...These were good! My asparagus were thin, so they got a bit overcooked, but they were still tasty. I especially liked the bread and cream cheese filling. These were v...

I too used crescent rolls. This was absolutely wonderful. They would be great at a ladies lunch. I will make again!

My family enjoyed this fun twist on asparagus. I felt as though it calls for too much of the cream cheese filling. It's a bit overpowering. I will definitely make this again, but with less cream...
