My Sister makes these for all of her partes - she is a total 'social butterfly' that loves to give a lot of parties!
I was never a lover of asparagus - until I ate these ! They are so good. Sis shared this recipe with me and I won a Blue Ribbon for submitting this dish to my first Curious Cuisiners meeting back in May of 2014!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This delightful dish makes a great appetizer and one that can be prepped ahead of time. You wouldn't know that it's made with white bread and baked! It looks more difficult than it is.

NOTE: The recipe calls for canned asparagus but you can also use fresh - it just has to be cooked before adding to the recipe. Even other vegetables could be substituted.
