  • 3 oz
    blue cheese
  • 8 oz
    cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 large
    egg, lightly beaten
  • 20 slice
    of white bread or 10 white and 10 wheat
  • 15 oz
    can of asparagus,drained well,pat dry

How to Make Amazing Asparagus Appetizers

Step-by-Step

  1. Blend blue cheese, cream cheese and egg until very smooth.
    Trim crust from bread(must do).Flatten each slice of crust-less bread with a rolling pin, then spread each piece with the cheese mixture.
  2. Place one asparagus spear on the bottom of each slice of bread(cut to fit on bread and add together on bread) and roll up. Place the rolls on a freezer safe pan or plate(not touching each other)- then place in the freezer to firm up; so as to cut easier. This will also prevent cheese mixture from gushing out while slicing and baking.
  3. Heat oven to 400^. Remove rolls from the freezer, cut each roll in half or thirds.(these can be made ahead, frozen and placed in freezer bags for future use).
    When ready to bake, place the rolls on a baking sheet and brush very generously with the melted butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned and crunchy.Serve at once.
