Have I TOLD you how much I love Pinterest? Especially for recipes. It is absolutely amazing. I found this recipe floating around Pinterest, and with my love of asparagus, knew it was worth a try. SOOO good! I was totally impressed and surprised by how delicious these ended up being. Perfect for appetizers, or just a side dish. Oh, or a lunch. Seriously–amazing.
Dijon Ham and Asparagus Roll-Ups
(taken from here–and definitely check out the site for some beautiful images. For whatever reason I didn’t take any pictures of mine!)
16 asparagus spears, cut down to about 3 1/2-inches with the head
1 (8 oz) package refrigerated crescent rolls
1-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
16 thin slices of ham
Preheat the oven to 375˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.
Place the asparagus in a covered casserole dish. Add water until just covering the asparagus. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, separate the crescent roll dough into 8 triangles and lay flat on the baking sheet. Spread a thin layer of the mustard on each triangle.
Drain the asparagus. Wrap two spears together in two slices of ham, then place at the wide end of a dough triangle and roll up the dough. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Serve warm.
I can’t wait for you to try these–I am now dreaming of them and can’t wait to make them again! Happy Friday.
