Asparagus Roll Appetizers
Rose M. Helle
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
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. The Test Kitchen
