Rec idea: asparagus rolls

My girls are coming over to help me plant 4 flats of impatients today. I had to bribe them though so here is part of our lunch
I took 25 asparagus spears and cooked them til just barely fork tender, these are a small spear not the large fat ones. Drained them and put into icy water. I removed the crusts from 25 slices of white bread,then flattened each slice with a rolling in. I mixed a large block of cream cheese and maybe 3-4 ounces of blue cheese with an egg,then spread the cheese mixture on the bread. I put on a dry asparagus spear, rolled it us and dunked the whole thing in melted butter and then into toasted sesame seeds. When we get ready to eat, I'll put them in the oven at 400 til lightly brown and then serve.
Along with this I've got a muchroom-chive bisque, and broccoli salad as odd as it seems, my girls will eat broccoli salad for breakfast Desset nope I need them awake and ready to plant flowers...Ah am I devious or what?

My mum makes these and they are great! (I don't like them with canned asparagus though, which a lot of Brits seem to....*shudder*). I love the idea of you and your family making them together too.

Woohoo, yet another smash hit from CJ!! In the later summer when you go hiking on the country side and look really well amongst the bushes, you can find those pensil thin wild asparagini, and oh, they are the best!! And I would love to try this recipe with them, if we find them this year. However in the mean time now the asparagus season is coming to a full swing, and we are planning on taking the full advantage of it... this will be high on the list to try!!

lulu, I feel the same way about canned asparagus..YUK, I could eat fresh almost everyday, but canned tastes just like canned to me..We do lot's of things together now, wish I'd taught the girls more when they were little, but with all 4 kids nipping at my ankles, it was quite the job just to catch them all up for homework let alone cooking..

Licia,
this one is easy and the nice thing is you can change the cheeses about and get some really different flavors. I was lucky with the asparagus, the market had both the pencil thin and the larger one, so I couldn't resist getting the small and making this one..
Oh, was supposed to tell Aunty that Cade lost his first tooth and proudly grins for you to see his gap Our boy is growing up!!

My mom used to make asparagus rolls when I was young a little different but similar. When I lived in Scottsdale, AZ, I use to bring them as appetizers & everyone loved them. I haven't made them in a while, I need to, my son loves asparagus. Thanks for the reminder.
