These "Asparagus Rollups" are absolutely delicious! They make a perfect party appetizer! They would be great for Spring showers, wedding receptions or graduation parties! They also make a tasty side dish! My son calls them Asparagus Twinkies...lol! They do look a bit like a Twinkie! They easy to prepare and you can prepare them the night before, refrigerate and cook right before your event!
This is what you will need:
24 slices of white sandwich bread, crusts removed
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup shredded Swiss or Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup softened butter
24 spears of fresh asparagus
Roll each slice of bread, with the crusts removed, flat with a rolling pin. Mix the cream cheese, softened butter, and cheese. Spread on each bread slice. Place one asparagus spear on the bread and roll it up. Dip in the melted butter. Place on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes!
Serve hot right out of the oven! These won't last long!
